    The Explore..........

    Visited with Telf, the final explore of the three, from a long and big day outings. :)

    Totally ring fenced now with the billboard ads for two, three and four bedroom accommodation......we managed the complete complex including the laundry and kitchen rooms, the halls and hallways, stages and corridors........so many pictures....cannot post them all!!!!!!...........;)

    A Bit of History.........(copied from Telf's report.........sorry :rolleyes:).

    In Coleshill, not far from the NEC, is a large group of buildings owned by the Catholic church. The site is operated by The Father Hudson Society, which was originally founded by a priest, Father George Vincent Hudson. Father Hudson died in 1936 and was buried in the grounds though he was later disinterred and reburied within the Society's church. Though there are active buildings on site there are also a number of abandoned buildings too. One of the abandoned buildings is the Saint Edward's Home for Boys, built in 1904. Although primarily a home for orphaned and abandoned boys it was also a school - in addition therefore to the dormitory accommodation etc. which you would expect to find, there are also school rooms and a chapel within the home. In 1998 the priest in charge of the school was convicted of 18 cases of child abuse and jailed for seven years. After only three years of his sentence he died in jail, but not before the Pope had stripped him of his rights as a priest for his sins. The building has been empty ever since 1996 and the feeling locally is that it should be knocked down because of it's sordid history.

    A little pic heavy but I hope you enjoy..........:D
