History:
Not much is known about the architectural history of the building, It was renovated in recent years into 3 Bedsits and then fell into dereliction again suffering excessive damage for many years. The major history is more on its original resident and very morbid past.
Peter Pickering, now 79, snatched Shirley Ann from the street as she walked home from school in the small town of Wombwell, near Barnsley. He raped and tortured her for seven hours before hacking her to death with a kitchen knife. Described by reporters at the time as a “soft-spoken sex maniac”, he wore Marigold gloves during the attack. When he was arrested he confessed and declared to officers:
“My mother is to blame for all this. She has possessed me.
The killing, on July 13, 1972, came just five months after Pickering had been released from jail for sex attacks against two teenage girls. He had been jailed for six years in March 1966 for the assaults in Doncaster and Scarborough. He had gone back to live with his mother, who was divorced, in her large and gloomy semi-detached in Wombwell. Their relationship was said to have been intense.
Pickering called himself a Buddhist and had a tattoo on his right arm reading Fear God and Honour the Queen.
