This is my second explore of this place, last time I got busted, having seen a few people have explored without a hitch I thought I would try again. No problems this time, apart from an eventful journey home being involved in a car crash on the M40, this was a good day.

History:
The exact date Silverlands was built is unknown, however it is thought to be between 1818-1825, the first owner being Vice-Admiral the Rt. Hon Sir Frederick Hotham. Silverlands was used as the Hotham family home until approximately 1887.

The Actors Orphanage was started in 1896 and was both a home and school to approx 60 children. The home and school was moved to Silverlands, Chertsey in 1938.
In 1941 it became a female nurse’s school for the nearby Botley Park Asylum and St Peter’s Hospital. This ran alongside the buildings use by the Actors Orphanage, until 1958 when the Orphanage Ceased to exist.


In 1990 Silverlands Nursing School amalgamated with other schools of nursing in Surrey and Hampshire to become the Francis Harrison College of nursing and midwifery.

At some point in the late 1990’s Silverlands ceased it’s role as a nursing school and the National Probation Service was looking for a new site for the ‘residential assessment and intervention programmes for adult males with allegations of, or convictions for, sexual offences involving children’. Silverlands in Chertsey was considered the most appropriate.

The proposal was met with strong opposition from local people who organised a candlelit vigil to protest about the site being used for such a purpose and were concerned about the impact of the 7000 children attending the 25 schools within a 2.5 mile radius of Silverlands. After a lot of debating and protests on 4th July, 2002, it was confirmed by the Home Office Minister that Silverlands will not become the home of the Wolvercote paedophile clinic.

However during this time, the Grade 2 listed building had already had £3.7 million pounds spent on its refurbishment. It remains empty. Its future uncertain.

Nice history as well, often omitted.

I don't know why the kiddy fiddlers would warrant such a building, I'd have them shackled in the shittiest of buildings.

Nice pics there. I'm concluding that this place is a little less secure now. Any sign of secca presence? Also the decay is setting in a bit. All in all, good developments for a local derp-lover like myself

No sign of security at all, we were there for at least an hour and a half. Another group arrived just after us and left after us too, don't know how they got on though!

I did indeed shut the door! Although it was open when we arrived. I'm all good thanks, just a stiff neck!

Thanks to everyone for the comments!
