    Default Hornsey Rise memorial home, Wellsborough, Leics, Sep14


    First explore out with KM punk for a while. This place was quite big so spent an enjoyable few hours here. So long, that we didnít get time to visit some of the other places on the list.

    The Natsopa Memorial Home opened in 1921, a memorial to printers who fell in the great war. At some point during the 1960's or 70's it became known as Hornsey Rise Memorial Home, and was owned by the Pilgrims' Friend Society. The home closed in June 2012. Some sections had been closed longer, and were in a greater state of decay.
