The Explore

Well firstly this place has been done to death, but with a recent influx of successfull reports coming from here i had to cross this one off the list while the goings good.

Great explore, visited with non-member StrakeNbakE and the half a dozen other random explorers we bumped into :D

C&P History

The Actors' Orphanage was started in 1896 by Kittie Carson at Croydon and was established as the Actors' Orphanage Fund in 1912.

In 1915 the Orphanage moved to Langley Hall at Langley. The orphanage was both a home and a school to approximately 60 children. At ages 15–17 pupils sat the School Leaving Certificate of Cambridge University and if 10 subjects were taken to Matriculation.

The home and school was moved to Silverlands, Surrey in 1938 where it remained until 1940. In September 1940 the Orphanage was evacuated to the USA where the children were housed in New York City at the Edwin Gould Foundation, and the children were sent to local schools.

After the war ended the Fund established a home (once again at Silverlands). This arrangement ended in 1958 and the Actors' Orphanage ceased to exist.

The 1912 fund was re-established as the Actors' Charitable Trust and financial and care help was offered to those in need.

Over the years many from the theatrical profession have given time and money to the running of the orphanage including some who became presidents of the orphanage among whom are Sir Gerald du Maurier, Noël Coward, Laurence Olivier and the last president Lord Attenborough.

Re: Silverlands - Surrey - December - 2014

Never met any security when I went, seems there was no one in when you went either! Not sure where they've gone. Is a great site and I enjoy seeing pics from the place and I especially like seeing reports that don't focus on the stair case! Cheers for sharing. :)
