another one that i know has been done to death so apologies to anyone getting bored of seeing it, popped in here and another local spot with a local member, this being in malvern and me being in worcs was nice to meet one of my neighbours so to speak, thanks again dude.

Was a nice morning exploring, the place is plenty buggered, but i dont mind buggered places, quite enjoy the challenge of getting a nice shot out of somehwere that looks like its had a bad day in bosnia. plenty of water damage, leaking like a sieve, at one point i realised my brand spanking new tokina was getting dripped on :eek: -seems alright though. A few more floorboards upstairs wouldnt go a miss before you go tap dancing down the hallway, a local building company has its mitts on this place at the minute and my local accomplise tells me it has got fresh razor wire on, god knows what it would cost to put this place right but they wont be doing it with the change from last nights takeaway.

bit of history.

The original house was Dr Johnson's water cure establishment. Dr Edward Johnson (1801 - 1867), who had moved from London, where his children were born, ran a water cure establishment first at Ellerslie (see below) and later at Malvernbury, and his son Walter took over on his father's death.

An 1887 edition of the BMJ lists doctors registered in Worcestershire and confirms indeed that a Dr W Johnson was at Malvernbury in Great Malvern.

Dr Walter Johnson married in 1867, South Tidworth Hampshire, Mary Ann Sophia Young the daughter of the Rector of Risley in Bedfordshire by whom he had four children.

The 1881 census records the couple living at 'Bury' House in Abbey Road which was almost certainly Malvernbury.

When Mary died in 1888, Walter Johnson retired to Kensington in London to live near his younger brother Horace Edward Johnson MD.

In 1907, Malvernbury was rebuilt, possibly for solicitor, William Dyson Perrins, grandson of the founder of the Worcestershire Sauce business - in 1911 his wife Kate Perrins and son Meredith Dyson Perrins were living there.

A plaque records that Florence Nightingale had been a visitor between 1857 and 1860.

Malvernbury later became a nursing home and has now been purchased by a developer. It is anticipated the house will be modernised and converted into apartments and other houses will be built in the grounds.

aaaaand some jazzy pics-












i know the wheelchair shot is prpbably the most cliche shot in the history of the world ever but it was already in this positon and i do think it worked quite nicely in this instance.
