    The History
    Formerly known as Waldern Heath, the 85-bed home lost its nursing registration in July 2014, after CQC took enforcement action due to the poor quality of treatment uncovered in an inspection that took place early July. As a result of the closure, 28 elderly residents have been relocated to other care facilities.
    The care home was criticized by the CQC in a report published in June 2014 which found it failed to ensure people's safety and welfare. Inspectors found that some staff had a limited understanding of the English language and failed to recognize urgent situations, including incidences where ambulances needed to be called. There were also additional concerns about serious incidents including an unexpected death of a resident, and an individual escaping the building, as well as somebody choking to death which was followed by an investigation which is currently ongoing.

    In June 2016, a fire broke out at the former care home. Firefighters have not established the cause of the fire as of yet and due to the unstable building they have not yet been able to enter the property, however 2 teenagers have been arrested on suspicion of arson, who have been released on bail while evidence is being reviewed.

    The Explore
    Did this one on another day trip with @plod and @Submarine, not sure if anybody else has actually done this place yet. I really liked the stained glass windows here :thumb Only random sections of the building were actually burned which seems to me as if it was almost definitely an intentional arson attack. The rooms were all pretty much empty and that's about it really.

    Some lovely original features there, it's a shame about the fire/ chav damage and the care conditions leading to its closure.
