    Default The Meadows Care home - Knaphill, Surrey - September 2017


    Man, what a mess it's become.


    History

    Shortly before its sudden closure in July 2013, this care home housed 13 patients. The 24 bedroom building built in 1996 was purpose made as a continuing care unit run by the NHS. The existing patients were transferred to private care nearby.


    The Explore

    Was doing an afternoon tour of the area so I dropped in for a look. It's in a really bad way and only really worth it if you are in the area. The graffiti is absolutely awful and all of the copper has been ripped out, leaving the ceiling tiles and insulation covering the floor.

    Made for an Ok Mooch, but overall a little underwhelming.

    some awesome shots there gromr. I don't know why but I get all excited when there's the outside shots of the place, then suddenly you're inside, presumeably after climbing through hells asshole to get in there hahaha! May I ask what lens you're using to get the wider POV?

    Wow, that's pretty well thrashed and not by dereliction but by vandalism. The outside looks good, I like the steps leading towards the front of the building.

    Oh my word, it was spotless last time I was in there. It has a bit of an 'Oracle' feeling about it now. Nice shots, thank you! :)

    Hmm it was stripped of copper when I went but in a lot better condition, I certainly remember the fire extinguishers were full as when I kicked one on the floor out of the way it ejected foam all up my buddys leg . Wonder what you were up to in my neck of the woods, doubt you went just for this
