This was a good catch by The Wombat. I took us 45 minutes just to get to the building after a farmer’s daughter pulled us up as we originally approached from the rear through fields. On arrival The Wombat noticed someone on the third floor, we automatically assumed it was other urbexers having a nosey. As we looked for an access I noticed some kids in the building in the room i was just outside, so I asked them how to get in, they met us at they’re self-built entrance. They were a noisy bunch and The Wombat sternly told them to quieten down, that lasted a whole 5 minutes then they continued smashing stuff.
Here’s a brief 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.
The place is a wreck, destroyed by petty vandals and there is evidence of at least 2 fires. Such a shame, it’d make a good hotel.
