Report - Fairmount Residential Care Home, Bradford - November 2010.

So, a trip to London for me with plans of a return trip through Oxfordshire to visit some of the more famous tourist attractions fell through at the last minute...

Quite fortunate really as Ms ST’s plans were still in place, so KooK and I decided to use the time to really start to comb what lay on our doorstep. After the early light of morning spent poking around three other sites without a result we came upon this little gem, in the form of a former residential care home.

Located in one of the more affluent suburbs of Bradford, Fairmount was most likely the residence of a Mill owner or similar and is typical of the area with most of the larger houses now Care Homes.

From what we could glean, Fairmount closed sometime around 2008 and has remained unused ever since, whilst developing large plumes of fungi. Untouched by pikey hands, examinable items were quite abundant and it was quite poignant to see possessions left behind by those who had either died or moved on after the home closed. In fact, after we’d finished looking around we spent some time browsing the library and taking a rest in the mahogany panelled snug.

No externals from me as my camera was safely tucked away from the rain... I’m sure KooK will oblige.

Here are a few photographs from within:

The orange dusting in the bathroom areas were caused by fungus spores..
