    Right Myself and SI & Obscurity have had our eye on this place for ages now ,waiting for the right time in-between the building closing from its duties within the college and before it was emptied out “Mothballed” and then the boards going up! Today was our day to give it a crack. This place as its in the grounds of a very live College has 24 hour security and CCTV cameras up all over the exterior which Are watched by security who are on the ball..We where just more on the ball today so finding our access point to be Doable we made our way in and explored the place from top to bottom..Theres a few locked doors but from the view through the glass mainly offices with stuff stored in them so no real loss..There is a morgue but it was not recognisable as a morgue due to many years of improvements and renovations


    A brief history because believe me there is an awful lot more about this place and Mr Yarrow online..

    The Yarrow Home for Convalescent Children of the Better Classes in Ramsgate Road was a project of Sir Alfred Yarrow from the Yarrow shipbuilding family. It was set up in 1894 and was used as a hospital for Canadian soldiers during the First World War. Again it was returned to use as a children’s home after WW1 but during WW2 it was again requisitioned for Military use. The home continued in use after WW2 until the 1960's when it became a Technical Training School. In 1997 the building was considered too expensive and planning permission was submitted to demolish it, however as there was much local opposition permission was refused. The building is now Grade II Listed and is still in use today as the Thanet Technical College.

    On with some pictures..
