    Default Hornsey Rise Memorial Home, Wellsborough Jan 2015


    After finishing our visit to the post office and enjoying a nice detour to Willington (no photos from me as I've been twice already) myself, OverArch and jo headed back down towards Leicester way and the sprawling Hornsey Rise Memorial Home situated in a small village near the city.

    Hornsey Rise Memorial Home was run by the religious organisation Pilgrim Homes as a Christian care and respite home. Originally constructed for NATSOPA in 1921 it opened as a memorial to printers who fell in the first world war, it was later taken over by Pilgrim's Friend Society and closed in 2012. It's been pretty ransacked by the usual lot of pikeys and morons, but is still an interesting wander and made for a nice relaxed third and last explore of the day. It reminded me of Malvernbury in a way, but a lot more trashed and less decayed - and it's a lot bigger than it looks from the road, we spent a good while here poking around the maze of rooms.

    That's a great site - probably difficult to cover in a day as its a huge site judging by the pics. I love the paint pods becoming moldy. An alternative penicillin source back in the day :) Great stuff!

    Nice one Mookie, looks like there's a bit of everything on offer there. I liked the nausea stickers especially.
