    Some History (Stolen :))​


    Silverlands is a large country house in Chertsey, Surrey, I can't confirm the exact date of construction but it was in the years surrounding 1820, an estate has existed here under the name of 'Silverlond' since at least 1420 according to town records. First owned by Henry Hotham, a hero of the Napleonic wars in the early 19th Century, it's recent history is more controversial, after having served as an orphanage and a nurses training college for much of the latter 20th Century, in 2001 plans were made to relocate patients from Wolvercote Clinic for convicted paedophiles.

    With 23 schools located within 2.5 miles of the Silverlands estate, one primary school just 5 minutes down the road, this caused a local outrage, on Oct 26th of that year the first of many candlelight vigils were held outside Silverlands by protestors, these were repeated weekly between 17:00 and 19:00 for several months. During these events the buildings went under intense refurbishment and maintenance, the ultimate bill for this and the required security arrangements almost hit £5'000'000. In July of 2002 it was confirmed that Silverlands would not be utilised for the rehabilitation of paedophiles, however the building has been vacant for the most part ever since.

    Nice one it's gone downhill in recent years.
    You used to get remote security staff shouting out of the tannoys telling you to "stay where you are the police are on their way".

    Nice pics.
    This is starting to get a level of decay that interests me. Also nice to see that it's less trouble to get in. Might have to charge up the camera
