    Default Burnt Out Elderly Care Home (Picture Heavy), Yorkshire


    Hi All,

    This is my first post. I am a Yorkshire lass interested in empty residentials (blocks of flats especially), but that's a bit daunting for me right now as, although I've been enjoying looking through all your urbexing exploits for ages, it's taken me a while to make the jump into actually going for it myself. This is my first ever urban exploration, and it is of a local care home that was burnt down (arson) around ten years ago, whilst it was still partly occupied. Although no one was hurt, a body was found in the grounds some years later following a local murder. The five men responsible have since been caught. I checked out this sad place with two friends. As well as several outbuildings, it also has a bomb shelter, which isn't really done justice in the picture. Enjoy!

    PS: Whilst I've the chance and got your attention, I read with interest the question posed about whether you've ever run into trouble whilst urbexing. My question is... have you ever run into something unexplainable? Either a spooky situation or an unexplainable photograph? The vibes I got from the atmosphere here were quite strong so was half expecting to see an elderly face peeking out of a window in one of the pictures!
