    Default The Woodlands Carehome,


    Visted with Mini Me. The place was originally a carehome for the elderly and then later become a home for young kids who had gotten into trouble, before finally becoming disused in Jan this year.

    Absolutely amazing how clean this place is, although very repetative room after room, this place is much bigger then it looks.

    3 floors up, plus 2 basement areas one of which is locked securely.

    Why do all carehome type places all seem to look similar? :(

    Really love that fireplace, the wooden stair rails, and that stained glass window is gorgeous.

    Nice to see some different places.

    Cheers,

    :) Sal
