22nd October 1919 Originally a family home, Meanwood Hall, built after 1762. It was rented in 1919 by Leeds Corporation to provide a home or 'colony' for people with with severe physical or learning disabilities. In 1921 Leeds Corporation bought the whole estate. The number of patients grew from 87 to 841 in 1941. To provide for growing numbers of patients villas were built in the grounds. The hospital is now closed and the site redeveloped for housing.
