St Edwards Home for Boys, Coleshill - April 2013

Seffy, tumbles, Grit and END-PROC. West Country on tour - day 1.

Some history:
The Birmingham Diocesan Rescue Society for the Protection of Homeless and Friendless Catholic Children was established in 1902 with Father Hudson as its first Secretary and Administrator. Father Hudson remained in Coleshill from 1898 until 1934. During that time the work of the Rescue Society grew, in particular the children’s homes. Its expansion included St. Vincent’s, a home for working boys in Moseley Road Birmingham, St. Edwards Boys Home, St George’s and St. James’ Cottage Homes for boys and St Gerard’s hospital for children in Coleshill. St. Gerard’s was the result of Father Hudson’s vision for a purpose built infirmary, not just for the boys of St. Edwards but for those from all Catholic homes in the Diocese and the Catholic children from the workhouse hospitals. Two new schools were established in Coleshill through the Society. Father Hudson’s devotion to the children, his patience, energy and great administrative skills guided this development and the Rescue Society became known colloquially as Father Hudson’s Homes...


It closed in the late 90's so been empty for a long time now.​
After seeing what had been done to the old Hoarders House, we moved further t'up North and stopped in Coleshill. I'd seen various pictures of this place before, but wasn't entirely sure what to expect now. That being said, it's all still there and in fairly good nick too!

It is GOOD to be back in some derps, I've been doing too much high stuff recently. A change of scene has done me good.

Some piccies.
