Bramham House was originally built as a family home in 1806. It was later purchased by the West Riding County Council Children's Department in approximately 1947, who converted it into an orphanage for neglected and homeless children. 35 children were being looked after at the orphanage by 1970, however in 1974, Leeds City Council took over the running of the home which resulted in a change of the admission policy, which subsequently caused many issues. The house shut in the 1980's, and the children moved to a home in Wetherby, which has since been demolished.
This building has been categorized as being at risk, and is capable of re-use.

The Explore
I came here with @Buffalo and @Submarine, as a last minute trip to Tadcaster. The place was quite far gone and it looked fairly trashed but it was quite an interesting building to look at. We even bumped into some friendly chavs trying to find a way into the building!
