  1. Quite a sad place really. It was a nursing home, lots of stuff left behind, even polaroids of elderly ladies with bruises on their hands, very odd! I suspect they had to report injuries or accidents e.t.c I remember climbing through a side window through 6 plastic wobbly milk crates and a TV stacked up, only to find front door open DOH! (it was on the main road though, was being discreet!) Nice decay in here, not a soul in sight!
  2. I have been here two times now, the first it had many items and furniture left behind and was quite hard to climb in! The second time, we tried the usual way and it was shut, so found another awkward way to climb in, then realised the front door was open.. just on the latch. haha Visit 1; Perhaps an accident? Photos everywhere Memories Me being silly Visit 2; even though it was empty, it was still beautiful, had some lovely light!
  3. UK summerlands lodge, sept 2011

    visited with obscurity... a little history.. Built in 1906, as new premises for a preparatory school,called Doon House School. The school was closed in the early part of the Second World War and the property requisitioned by the military as an officer's mess for nearby Manston airfield. In 1946 it became the headquarters of the British Legion Homes, Maurice House. The home moved to new premises in nearby Broadstairs, the building became the head office for a construction company and then, in the mid-1980's a nursing home. A large neo-Georgian property set back from the road with substantial gravel approach and grounds. Constructed in red brick with stone dressings it comprises of a central projecting gable flanked by two of similar design to the left and right of the property. A tiled roof with central glazed timber lantern and six dormer windows to the front elevation. Three round windows with decorative brick surround to the gable ends with decorative timber soffit and corbel. To the centre of the building to the first floor is an impressive leaded window the upper portion divided into four parts. These contains the coat of arms of colleges that two founders and original masters of Doon House School attended. The main entrance, which is situated below the leaded window, has a fine stone arched broken pediment surround terminated with two well-detained Corinthian columns. on with the pics.. thanks for looking
  4. This was my first visit to Summerlands. I didn't see all of it, It was just a quick walk around photographing things of interest. Summerlands Lodge is located in Westgate, near Margate. It was a BUPA care home which closed down in recent years (not sure exactly). Inside it is rotten and damp beyond repair. Room with lots of photos, not sure why. Looking up tower This was probably the most eerie room... Thanks for looking, please leave feedback!
