    Post Old Rectory Care Home


    I took a trip to this old care home, which has been posted on here before so you probably know all about it anyway!



    I have no idea how recently the care home was used, but there is paperwork inside dating between 1984 and 1994.

    The place was a little trashed but not too bad considering how easily accessible it is. The main cause for the houses damage is from water which has lead to the floor collapsing in the kitchen, and ceilings collapsing elsewhere, which meant that when venturing upstairs I was paying ever more attention to how light-footed I was being.

    Anyway, enjoy the pictures:







    Each floor on the building is of considerable size; the ground floor had 2 reception rooms, 2 bathrooms, 1 kitchen, and 2 bedrooms, and a few cupboards:











    And a couple of selfies:























    Of course, being the nosey person I am I ventured into the loft and managed to get out on to the roof:





    One additional note is the amount of empty wine bottles I found lying around; these oldies certainly knew how to party.

    Thanks for looking,

    Rubex

    Love it. Looks great. Love the old electronics, and great to see an audiobook narrated by Tom Baker. Also, vinyl!

    Thank you for your concerns Smiler :) I'm always very careful when exploring and don't take any unnecessary risks. I only explore areas I personally feel safe to be in. There's been many occasions where I've wanted to explore places, but the danger has put me off!

    Fantastic post Rubex! I have to agree with Smiler though; a pretty young thing like you needs to be careful not to hurt herself!
