Only a mini report – but as you will read later – there are unlikely to be any more

The cemetery was originally for the mental hospital – and co opted for the service men who ` died of their wounds ` during its wartime use as a military convalescent hospital

All but a handful of civilian graves were removed – and a memorial to the patients erected

And in 1993 it was sold to property developers

It was a very a very peaceful site – insulated from traffic noise and the rest of the world

Pictures :

Gates



The approach path



Looking the other way



The last civilian internment



The patients memorial





Each statue stood at a cardinal compass point – and was named for the seasons









The war memorial and military cemetery – still owned and managed by the war graves commission







That was the mini report - Now the frothing rant , The site has been vandalized – read here

Its also just been on the regional teevee news magazine show ` northwest tonight `

Both chapels have been trashed – and all the statues smashed – fooking feral chavscum

The fooker bastards should be flogged – then sprayed with battery acid and their corpses hung in public as a warning to others

no punishment too cruel or too unusual

The statues are beautiful. The idea of a site like this being sold to property developers just seems sick to me. And the vandalism makes me furious, I would love to get hold of the little shites and cut their bollocks off. Seriously, people like that should just be burnt.

Cobland, otherwise known as Derbyshire lol.
Really liked these pics Andy. Love those statues, and like the peaceful surroundings it shows.

As for the scum that vandalised it, they should be flogged, shot, or both :mrgreen:

Cheers,

Yes, and people on SSC banter on about how Liverpool is perceived as such a bin by the rest of the country/world...

What a disgrace. I think the mentality is just bizarre. Oh, I know, let's smash something today. Perhaps the most pathetic thing of all is that if any of these kids had found themselves in a WW1 trench, they'd probably have pissed themselves and begged to go home.

The people I feel sorry for are the war vets - they gave all they did, and for what. This absolute mess of 'civilisation' we call England. Thank fuck I'm getting out of this bin of a nation soon...

Hey this ties in with our hopeless home secretary and her lame version of national service, I agree with Snappel, what should really happen is send the buggers to Bhagdad or Helmund province soon see how tough/brave they are.
they will need some of these and not body armour
