    I’ve visited before, but was never happy with my previous photos, so was looking forward to a return trip here. Its been stripped, tagged & trashed, but still lots to see. Its been known by a few names, including Zachary Merton home, and Bradgate care home.
    Group explore with the most excellent company of Pom, Juju, Catsvstyle, Baz, Gabe, Lost explorer & King Mongoose. We had a good look around, but came across a group of kids who were probably up to no good.

    I absolutely love the external of this place in its state of overgrowth, and it is even more photogenic in summer. The inside is so horrendously trashed that its difficult to find a window that the bloody vandals haven’t got to yet. Even the Doctor Muriel graffiti has got graffiti on it!

    The external shots I took recently when the weather was more favourable. This may be last explore for a while… but I will be back!


    History
    It was built as the Charnwood Convalescent Hospice for injured soliders in 1937. After WW2 it was made NHS and became a rehab centre/home for amputees and called Zachery Merton Convalescent Home. In 1999, the home was bought by the infamous Primelife Ltd and was renamed Bradgate Care Home. In 2006 Primelife moved into Charnwood Oaks in Shepshed, leaving Bradgate Care Home empty. Since then multiple housing associations have bought the site with the most resent application for demolition dating July 2012.
