The Leucosis Experimental Unit is the basic buildings at Houghton Grange! Its what most kids call the chicken coops. As you can probally tell by the departments name that they used to test the Leucosis disease here! Leucosis is a viral disease found in animals (mainly poultry or cattle).

Houghton Grange!

Houghton Grange was built in 1897 as a purpose to be a house, But was sold to Mr Rank who founded Houghton Poultry Research Station in 1948. It remained Europes leading animal testing facilitys untill 1992 when it closed its doors for good! Ever since it has sat there decaying untill 2010. In 2010 someone purchest the site and provided it with security cameras. It remained like this untill 2016 when they recently put 24/7 patrol on the site but its still not enought to stop us! ;0

Enjoy the pics

After WW2 the grange was used as a teacher training college for ex servicemen. My late dad studied there in 1946 prior to entering a career as an art teacher.

If it's only 1 mile away you could go look rather than breaking the forum rules to ask. ;)

ahh now then now then as Uncle Jimmy used to say (he said lots more but thats a different story)...i did see the rules and wanted to be carefull not to break them.

We are just talking generalisations after all..but your very polite kick in the bum is taken onboard...:p

I could walk down a farmers drive and be greeted with a crying daughter/wife or granduaghter and an angry farmer with his shot gun...lol
