Trips outside the city were sponsored by various organisations and firms, for example the staff of the Leeds Post Office, who made it possible for twenty-five patients to be “conveyed by motor to Bardsey... the route taken being via Arthington, Harewood and East Keswick.

Stories from the War Hospital, the 2nd Northern General Hospital, Leeds, during the 1st World War

The beautifully fine weather added charm to the early autumn scenery of the countryside. On arrival at Bardsey, the men, chiefly limbless cases, found an excellent tea provided for them by the hostess of The Bingley Arms (Mrs Benchley), which was given gratuitously by this lady, who states that she will always be pleased to entertain the men.”
