Anyone feel the need to be MOD?
Sun Apr 18, 2010 6:14 pm by meanwood_monks
Been thinking about this for a while now.

Some of you guys/gals have been here since day 1. Cheers for all your support over this time.
Was wondering if anyone was wanting to keep an eye on things and have MOD rights here.

PostSubject: The Grange Nursing Home ( Again, Previously on DP.)   Sat Sep 20, 2008 10:43 am

Our first proper urbex mission....
and we loved it!!!! Smile

This place was amazing! the only downfall was the severity of the rain
as it also made the floors extremely dodgy as half of them we're caving in anyway
BUT as always we were careful! and we did have a handy asset in the form of Ben's mum!
who worked in the grange before it was condemned to act as a tour guide lol
she helpfully informed us which rooms patients died in, not sure if it was help or hindrance :neutral:
This place wasn't really that creepy, although the basement was horrid but it did have some awfully strange noises! doors shutting and i SWEAR i could see shadows moving around but again I'm a wuss.

Took us a while to judge which parts of this building were safe and which areas where no go and i plucked up quite a bit of courage ( which isn't like me in scary big houses ) and climbed the extremely un-sturdy , fire damaged stairs and the top flight which had no banister lol... the joys!
I must admit climbing that second flight had my heart racing as there was so much debris on the wall side of the stairs i was balancing on the edge and looking over with no banister to a 12ft drop isn't the most pleasant thing!

Now this place was built in 1880 and restored after a fire 1898.

"Not sure what happened in the next 50 years but in 1952 it became a county council old people's home. It seems the place was still being used as a nursing home up to about 4 years ago, maybe even less, the recent fire damage is pretty extensive and it's been trashed by kids and weather. According to the estate agent's sales details the fire damage has meant the building has become 'de-listed'. This makes me suspicious about the cause of the fire - the home was originally for 30 or so residents, new plans have gone forward to re-use the footprint for a new nursing home, big enough for 60 people (obviously knocking down the once listed building)..."

First room we came across... Next too some sort of conservatory

Not seen this one before. I like the armchair ones, some really good shots there. The bathroom ones are cool too. How brilliant having yer mom to act as a tour guide. Nice report, and really good to meet you!
