    Post Derelict care home


    Haven’t been out exploring for ages…… Was great to get out again, and introduce a friend to exploring. Took him to an ROC post, an old railway tunnel, a farmhouse… and this gem.

    This is one I visited at the beginning of the year. I hadn’t posted originally, as I didn’t want it to get trashed… but it has now. Here are some photos from my original visit, when it was still in good condition. Revisited recently, and water has got in the roof, things have been stolen, and the metal has been looted.
    Lovely old care home in a rural area, with at least 8 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, 3 kitchens, an outside swimming pool, stairflifts, and elevators.





























    Sadly it's not in mint condition anymore. But a lovely little place anyway

    Good work mate. Depressing how such a nice place can go down so quickly when the idiots get in innit?
