    Default Bradgate Nursing home, revisit, April 2012


    Had a quick look around here after another explore around the corner. It was extremely trashed a couple of years before when I visited. As the place is about to be demolished I thought I would share what is left of the place. Soon Bradgate nursing home will be no more!

    I have added the little bird who met us on our walk around, he was really cute and friendly. Not sure what he is but he had webbed feet.

    What a mess that is now! It looks really interesting from outside and not a bit like a nursing home but more like a hospital or the like.

    Thanks for posting.

    It was originally the The Zachary Merton Convalescence Home to house injured war veterans. I have found some info that suggests it is a listed building, and so is being redeveloped.

    Conflicting evidence on the net!
    Seems it is to be demolished for 8 houses to be built, but some sites suggest it is listed?!
    Confused!

    Listing doesn't mean somewhere won't be demolished! Been trashed for so long now, but I do like the building.

    Great report - and I love the shots of the little bird!
