    First explore out with KM punk for a while. This place was quite big and spent an enjoyable few hours here, so long, that we didn’t get time to visit some of the other places on the list.

    The Natsopa Memorial Home opened in 1921, a memorial to printers who fell in the great war. At some point during the 1960's or 70's it became known as Hornsey Rise Memorial Home, and was owned by the Pilgrims' Friend Society. The home closed in June 2012. Some sections had been closed longer, and were in a greater state of decay.

    Has the long building on the right gone now ?
    There was a calendar in there dated 1997

    Cheers matt
    building on the right was still there, and was noticably in a more decayed state.
    looks like some clearing work going on out the back

    there moving quick on the grounds but still don't seem to of touched the buildings

    can't see much worth stealing unless you've got a van full of scrap parked outside, the Police do seem a bit keen here though

    Interesting sign on the white board naming a pair of the tea leafs which I thought was amusing. Can't believe how stripped it was. Smashed sinks, all door handles gone. A pile of copper wire in one corridor along win cutters and hacksaw suggests someone got their collar felt.
