Urban explorer Daniel Sims has discovered what he has described as a secret “sh*g pad” hidden away in the grounds of a former asylum.

A number of mattresses and items of discarded clothing on the floor of the property certainly suggest people have been making themselves comfortable in the abandoned home in Huddersfield, Yorkshire.

Daniel posted a video to his Bearded Reality social media channels chronicling his progress through the mysterious houses on the site of the former Storthes Hall asylum, now a student campus.

The crumbling homes in the woods have likely been untouched since the asylum closed in 1991 almost 30 years ago, reports Examiner Live.

Someone's clearly been getting up to some sort of mischief in the abandoned house

Filming solo and with his pal Jason, Daniel got spooked by a noise in the graffiti-strewn property he has named the "sh*g pad."

A second home has been nicknamed Tunnel Snakes House after the bizarre graffiti on boards covering the window.

More amusing "art work" is inside along with newspapers from the mid 1990s.

While venturing into the first home alone, Daniel got scared by a noise and decided to immediately leave, completing the exploration at a later date with his friend.

Daniel said: "I used to explore on my own but over time I've become used to exploring with other people as anything can happen in these places so I am just a bit careful and try not to take chances when I'm in a location with only a few exits.

"I've also been a bit jumpy since the haunted abandoned care home I went in at Oakes was set on fire."

Daniel said there didn't appear to be any drug abuse going on at the homes, near the quaint villages of Kirkburton and Thunderbridge, but it was clear youths had been gathering inside.

Some had taken the time to bring an Ikea armchair into the home.

"I was joking about sh*g pad," he added.

"But you can never tell. It clearly was, or still is, a hangout of some kind."
