    Someone I used to work with had a boyfriend who worked as a security guard at a nursing home that was being renovated.



    She often visited him there because his duties included guarding a pile of matresses waiting to be skipped.....

    Wish,

    I'm guessing you visited a while ago, i went here about 2 month ago now and on both occasions it was a mess! Didnt find the second basement area though, only found the one with i think 6 rooms, 1 boiler and another one had child's drawings on the wall. I thought there may of been a second basement when looking at the outside access to it, but thought better when seen the half pulled up york stone tiles.

    defo a while ago i guess, the wall covering the lift has been ripped off(plaster board), and there was defo no showers with there glass, or sinks in that condition!

    The details on the staircase and the stained-glass window certainly redeemed a rather run-of-the-mill care home. Quite an imposing fireplace too!
    I find it interesting with these places to see the various decorations from different decades. My dentist's is like that...a very old building which was partly renovated in the 60's, a gorgeous heavy Jacobean oak door with bottle-glass windows, Victorian stained-glass, fake Tudor panelling, fake Regency fireplace and the usual 70's airtex ceiling. At least looking at the decor helps to take my mind off my appointment!

    Crack den? in farnworth?

    Went there on a recce in December, then back twice in January, not a dickie bird in that place, no needles, no hint of drug use what so ever. Has been chaved, granted, but no one hardly goes there.

    Surely you must of heard them before you went in, or even in the first few minutes.

    yes i saw them within 20 seconds of entering. as soon as they saw me they all run off for sum reason (maybe they thought i was a cop) as i was going back to my car they all came running back at me from the trees behind the building armed with bats etc

    So within 20 seconds of entering, you were spotted, did you enter with ear muffs on, or were they all "chilling". Cant get my head round the fact that you didnt hear them before hand, and for you to see them within 20 seconds, they must of been sat in the corridor, strange considering theres about 100 areas.

    I'm guessing we are on about the same place here, Farnworth in Bolton?

    Mind you, the only drugs in that place is the pennicilin growing on the carpets.

    Weve all had our experiences i suppose.
