Here is what I believe is 2 residential houses and grounds turned into a plant nursery and orchard. It took me a while to get a report up as im new to site and did not know how to upload pictures.
It looks like its been empty for a few years I noticed it when I was riding down a cycle route coming home from my old job. The right hand building is in much worse condition then the one on the right I think there must be holes in the roof or something as all walls are mouldy and wet and floor is decaying in places but the staircase is still usable. The left house though is much better alot more of how it used to be like is still there I thought it was a nursing home when I first went in it. There are some pretty cool features the main one is the cool circle window into the room with the piano in which was in much better condition and in tune which surprised me.
Out in the gardens there is the remains of an old poly tunnel on the right hand garden and a couple of shed / outbuilding things and if you go right to the back of the left garden there is an orchard with apple and pear trees kind of cut off from everything with a tall wall on one side and tall bushes in square round edges its quite peaceful in there.
There is a bit of graffiti as there normally is with these kind of places but not too much I would say its definately worth checking it out. The pictures are not the best quality as i was using my backup phone but got a couple of good shots.

Nice report and photographs there. I'm in Dorset too and it's always good to see new places pop up and not the same old ones.

Keep up the good work. Will visit Rosina as I am very interested in old fruit and rose tree varieties. What is the status of the planning application? Don't want to walk into a building site.

Defiantly not a building site a few weeks back. No roses or fruit trees, neither.
