    Default Abandoned Care Home - April 2012


    This is the report of the 2nd building I visited while working out of my normal area. This is abandoned, but not derelict, it almost feels like people just left in a hurry and never came back. The grounds are overgrown and have many little out-buildings and sheds all containing various tools and stuff, but the main building is just awesome.

    It's of particular interest to me as I work for a Care Provider who also owns a few care homes - I even showed this report to my Management colleages and they were all fascinated (not to mention very puzzled as to how I knew about it, and how I got the photos! :p) At one point my MD even seemed curious to the point of wanting to buy it!!! Until he found out where is was and then he changed his mind...









































    Ooops, must get a tripod....


    Why go through a door when there's a perfectly good window?

    I dont recall seeing one, but that doesnt mean it wasnt there. I usually spot all the decent stuff on the 2nd visit, I must get better at this urbex malarky
