    Taken me a little while to get this report up but about a week ago I went to Silverlands Orphanage with kkj and CarCarzy was a reasonable easy explore.. seems to be a lot of cameras but have been there twice now and without making any major effort to avoid them have never been caught.
    This was a night explore so photos were quite tricky and had to use flash as never took tripod with me.. would love to go back in day as it looks like a completely a different place going by other peoples posts.

    History

    The Actors' Orphanage was started in 1896 by Kittie Carson at Croydon and was established as the Actors' Orphanage Fund in 1912. In 1915 the Orphanage moved to Langley Hall at Langley (was in Buckinghamshire - now in Berkshire). The orphanage was both a home and a school to approximately 60 children. At ages 15–17 pupils sat the School Leaving Certificate of Cambridge University and if 10 subjects were taken to Matriculation.

    The home and school was moved to Silverlands at Chertsey, Surrey in 1938 where it remained until 1940. In September 1940 the Orphanage was evacuated to the USA where the children were housed in New York City at the Edwin Gould Foundation, and the children were sent to local schools.

    After the war ended the Fund established a home (once again at Silverlands, Chertsey). This arrangement ended in 1958 and the Actors' Orphanage ceased to exist.

    The 1912 fund was re-established as the Actors' Charitable Trust and financial and care help was offered to those in need.

    Over the years many from the theatrical profession have given time and money to the running of the orphanage including some who became presidents of the orphanage among whom are Sir Gerald du Maurier, Noël Coward, Laurence Olivier and the last president Lord Attenborough.
