    Talking The Carehome - January 2015


    First stop of a tour end last year!

    First of all big thanks to the Dirty Jigsaw for going here a week or so before I ventured, I needed something close by and already doing the school earlier in the year, this seemed like a good hit before we went anywhere else, on a mammoth trip up to liverpool.

    Upon arriving it was very early... thus myself and "jellybean" decided to venture inside, rain and heavy winds greeted us as doors slammed and odd noises was heard, so creeping around was a must after all who knows who may be sleeping... The smell of decay firmly up the nostrils as we walked around on the bottom floor, rain hitting the beds with every drip and drop, an doors slamming made this place rather awkward to feel safe walking around, thus we continued, upstairs pretty much the same sound effects, many doors slamming and most of the floors had been ripped up, some beds neat others very much soggy and covered in muck.

    The place has an atmosphere that's for sure and I have been doing this just over 4 years now, an not once have I felt I needed to stay so alert and on my toes, than being inside here....

    History:
    This large detached house dating to 1907 was designed in an Arts and Crafts style and is clad in roughcast render. The was architect A Hill Parker a local architect based in Worcester. It is a two-and-a-half storey building with double-height. It retains its original leaded windows throughout, with the exception of two openings which have been converted into fire escape doorways. It had a number of functions throughout the 20th century including a private residence, a school and finally as a nursing home. It replaced an earlier structure of the same name which was established by Dr Edward Johnson in 1854 as a facility for patients to take the water treatment from the famous Malvern springs. This earlier building continued in its original use after Dr Johnson's death in 1867 and was taken over by his son Walter. Florence Nightingale stayed in the 19th century property in 1857 and 1867. -

    Nothing wrong with this at all, an interesting write up and images. A lot of those floors are looking iffy though. Did you venture up the fire escape?

    Wonderful set!
    I can't believe the state of the place now, such a shame!
    Our visit was strange, the door bell rang, and then lots of banging downstairs. we hid upstairs for ages shitting ourselves, luckily no one came up :)

    Thoughtfully Done, for me it was often some little thing, such as the hairbrush left behind that puts a place into perspective. Thanks

    Great shots, i did this place nearly three years ago now and i remember it was pristine inside with no damp, mold, graffiti and it was an awesome explore, i like the change in it now gives it a really grimy decayed atmosphere.
