    Post Summerlands Lodge, Westgate-On-Sea, May 2010


    Sorry for the prolonged absence from a report point of view, I'm on the forum almost every day but tend not to post.

    I've been looking at this site since it first closed and having seen reports a few months ago it was added to an ever expanding list of things to do. After checking back and forth for a few weeks patience paid off. I won't add much to the history in previous reports was excellent, in short it was a boys school Doone House, was requisitioned by the Air Ministry in the war, following which neither of the partners in the school claimed it back, so it was used as a Royal British Legion home, now relocated to Broadstairs, it served in different educational roles and most recently as a BUPA care home, although Obscurity listed closure as 2006 based on documentation I reckon late 2008 is more accurate. Visited with SDP. On with the pictures:

    Apologies for the jaunty external:




    Outbuildings:




    Obligatory lonely chair shot in the garden:




    Storage:




    Window Shot:




    Bath time:




    This was strange lol:




    Corridor shot:




    Activity room with mouldy goodness:




    SDP in the managers office:




    Example of a patients room, all pretty stripped:




    Front door:




    Self portrait with the chandelier:




    Colour injection for the stained glass:






    And a personal touch:



    All in all a good explore, a hell of a lot more trashed than in previous reports, but still with a lot worth seeing, go soon though, because the place is getting more rotten and more stripped everyday.



    Cheers for looking, constructive criticism is cool,

    Thanks, the bath is rather amazing, it is still working and connected to the electricity, the only thing I found in the building that was
