UK Malvernbury Care Home, Worcs, December 2014

Recommended Posts

So here is my overdue report from this late December, pre Christmas explore with Mookster.

I had been visiting a friend in hospital in Bristol and staying over another friends house just outside of Bristol.

Mookster and I decided an explore was on the cards so I went to pick him up not thinking that his house was 75 miles in the wrong direction, and 75 miles back up the same roads to get to the first, I had an incling but my Christmas spirit kicked in and I collected him.

First stop was an old Carehome in Malvern, Worcestershire. Mooks had visited this in 2011 and it was in perfect condition, but three years had taken its toll and the site was in a horrific state, yet beautifully decayed at the same time.

Other reports and Yellow Pages suggest a 2001/2 closure but paperwork inside prooves a 2008/9 closure is more likely.

Good stuff mate :thumb

A 2008/9 closure? Amazing how a place slips into decay so quickly isn't it!

The light in number 8 for the win :cool:

Id say this is about right for six years closure

i was actually lucky enough to discover this beauty a few years ago, and reported on it..its a few miles from me. When i went it was like they had just gone out for tea lol...i look at it now and it actually appeals to me more but thats because im not a fan of clean cut places...However ..its a big shame that the place has been left to be stripped and vandalised..some pics are below so you can compare..

      Been closed a fair while now, been here 3 times and never been able to gain access to this part of it due to it being locked off and being caught by secca once!

      We visited St John's Hospital in Lincolnshire on Sunday, here is our video. Although we were told the security at the hospital was extremely tight we didn't actually come across any security at all! They must have been having a day off lol.

      A bit of a pain in the back side to get in this one, they have really made an effort with those fences! There was no security though, once you find a way past the doubled up security fences it's smooth sailing. We did find one particular part of this place rather creepy, there is a rotten bed in a dark basement that was quite eerie and had a different feel than the rest of the decaying building. More information will follow on our website in a day or so.

      History
       
      Horbury had a chapel of ease to the Church of All Saints in Wakefield, from before the time of the Domesday Book. The chapel was replaced by a Norman chapel with a nave and tower that stood until it was replaced by the present church in 1790. St Peter and St Leonard’s Church, the parish church, was designed by John Carr, the Horbury born architect who built the Georgian neo-classical style between 1790 and 1794 at a cost to himself of £8,000. He is buried in a vault beneath the north aisle. The foundation of St John’s Church at Horbury Bridge was in a mission meeting in a room in what is now the hairdressers in 1864. Funds were raised and the church was built with stone from Horbury Quarry in 1884. The curate, Sabine Baring-Gould wrote the hymn “Onward Christian Soldiers” in 1865 for the Whitsun procession to Horbury Church. Another mission was set up at Horbury Junction in 1887 and St Mary’s Church was built in 1893. The Methodist Church on High Street was demolished. The Salvation Army corps has headquarters on Peel Street and the Tithe Barn Christian Centre is on Westfield Road.

      Tithe Barn Street in Horbury was so named after the old tithe barn, which was used to store produce of the tithe. A tithe means a tenth and one tenth of every Horbury parishioner's income from produce of the land had to be donated to the church. The right to receive tithes was granted to the English churches by King Ethelwulf in 855. These tithes were taxes, which each inhabitant was compelled to pay. Horbury was a Chapel of Ease to Wakefield Parish Church, and the Vicar of Horbury was a Curate in Charge. The tithes which were collected from Horbury residents belonged to the Vicar of Wakefield and not to the Vicar of St. Peter's, Horbury.

      By chance we discovered this one on route to Wakefield... The exterior is in good condition and from what we understand the building became abandoned in 2011 after various businesses one including a day nursery had re-located. The interior is pretty heavily vandalised and lots of precious metals & items have been taken... this said theres no real structural damage and was able to negotiate round without any real danger. The main hall of the church still as some original features including coving found typically in a church, unfortunately no pews or alter remain although there was a cool seating area above the main hall. There was also an area round to the rear probably an extension at some point to deal with the volume of people... which had kept some of its original features... quite a nice easter egg this one

      Today the Christian Centre lays more vandalised than ever...
       
      still worth a wonder in my opinion
