Hi this is my first post so please bear with m. I couldn't find out much abut this place except that it used to be a residential home but has been closed for a couple of years. Access was easy but you cannot access the upstairs as the linking door is bolted. We found the basement purely by chance so, bonus! Enjoy :)

I used to work there! The house was extended. On the new side there are 3 floors. The 3 pic which you have posted with the brown doors with glass in it. Used to be where Bingo was played with the residents.

The pic next was a residents bedroom with ensuite bathroom.

The door on the right hand side was the electrical cupboard and also house the lift for the other 2 floors. The office was to the left. The emergency exit at the top of the picture (which is boarded up had residents rooms either side before the door.

I remember one night when I was working nights there. The fire alarm went off and there was a electrical fire where the fuse board was. the fire tracked up each floor void you could see the fire board each zone light up and the alarm sounding. However no one was killed or injured! just a lot of smoke. It was due to overloading. We had to turn off the washers and driers at 1am as there was always a surge. (Don't know why) one night this wasn't done as someone had forgotten to do it. The staff room which is (pic 19)

Thanks for posting these. Good to see the memories! Such a shame that its been left empty. (probably the fish tank is still there in the old side of the house!)
