    Visited this one with a friend and managed to get about an hours exploring in until we noticed an angry copper thief throwing stuff around in another building and so we did the main block and then left (my DSLR wasn't cheap and there was only 2 of us, better be safe then sorry!).

    Anyway in terms of history I know that this place opened in 1921 as a memorial to all the printers who died during the great war, hence NATSOPA, or the National Society of Operative Printers and Assistants. It was later acquired by the Pilgrims Trust and renamed Hornsey Rise Memorial Home, only to be shut in 2013 and replaced by their new Leicester care home in Evington. Below are some shots that I got.

    That copper thief will work for days to get what remains, when in fact that BBQ or the standard lamp is probably worth more :crazy

    Ha yeah they really seem to be gutting this place at the moment, there are floorboards and slabs up everywhere! I'm gonna revisit in the new year when it's quietened down a bit to see what we missed.

    It's huge! we only saw about 1/3rd of it thanks to the copper thief, so I'll definitely be going back for a revisit, thanks for liking it though!

    Nicely done mate, I wouldn’t wait until new-year for a revisit though!

    Not to mention the Henry Bush tea trolleys and wardrobes.

    Yeah I guess by January this place will have been turned over and locked down a bit more, but I do like to see how a place changes with the time, so might do another visit this month and then a final next year :)
