    Post Old Rectory care home, Oct15


    Went out for a long overdue day of exploring with Frizman; someone I just don’t get to explore with often enough.

    Was really excited about seeing this place. The ancient TV & decayed living room......
    to the still made beds from all those years ago, make this a real gem.

    I forgot my bloody tripod. So I had to improvise with various props around the place, and some shots are handheld. Sorry.

    Some areas were a bit dicey…. The floor collapse in the kitchen is bad and the upstairs is sinking underfoot. We had a fright as a chunk of the ceiling fell down in the next room. Our first thought was that there was someone upstairs, but it became apparent that the building was literally crumbling around us.
    This place was awesome, many thanks to Rubex for this one. How refreshing to visit a place with natural decay and no vandalism.

    No concrete history on this one – Could have been closed in the late 90s – we found paperwork suggesting the utilities were shut down in 2001.














    I loved this room


















    That TV...


    NOW, we couldn't find a second 'M' so we had to improvise for Frizman with an 'N' :D












    Hope you enjoyed the photos as much as we liked looking

    It literally was a slant on the place with whatever props I could muster to stand in for a tripod!
