    Default Fletcher Convalescent Home, Cromer, Norfolk - January 2010


    Took a trip to this location over the weekend with the venerable Black Shuck (looks like he and I are now joined to the hip as a local explore team!!!).

    A bit of a story behind this as we thought we had got busted by the watchman - but a cheeky request for permission to go into the building was actually granted and we got a full tour from him!!! We didn't get long though, and our shots were quite hurried, but better that than nothing at all - and a legit visit - lol!!!

    The history is elsewhere on the forum, so I'll get straight on with the photos :-)

    Some nice shots you have there.
    You were lucky to bump into someone who was willing to give you a tour of the place.

    The architectural beauty of this place, takes my breath away every time I see it. Its probably one of the nicest looking buildings in Cromer.
    And a dreadful thing from the cliff did spring. And its wild bark thrilled around. His eyes had the glow of the fires below. Twas the form of the Spectre Hound. 'Ha' yer fa'r got a dickey, bor?' 'Yis, an' he want a fule ter roide 'im, will yew cum?'

    Beautiful building. Love that piece of stone carving and the pic with the light patches from the window on the peely paint.
