Ferdowse Clinic / Heckington Manor, Lincolnshire - August 2015

Recommended Posts

Ferdowse Clinic AKA Heckington Manor

The Explore

Visited with Urbexbandoned after a wander around the Bass Maltings. I had been last year already for a quick mooch around and then it was starting to show signs of abuse by the local shitbags so i wasn't holding high hopes for the state of the place, and i wasn’t wrong. Such a shame a buyer didn’t come forward before it got to it’s current level of fuckedness. I remember being amazed that the stained glass window was still intact 18 months ago, but now some toe rags have smashed it up. Pretty much just an update on the place, difficult to actually get a photograph nowadays but heres a couple for record only…

The History

(Stolen from myself)

Dr Mostafa Morsy, a specialist of addiction treatment, spent around £300,000 bringing the former Heckington Manor up to scratch and opening a successful private practice for the treatment of alcoholism in the late 1980s. In 2003, the government had drastically cut funding for this sort of treatment and Dr Morsy had no other option other than to close the doors of his pride and joy.

Since being disused, the property has been vandalised heavily and now sits waiting for a new owner.

Final thoughts… derp-hole, take a tripod, or even better a hand-grenade, I wouldn’t even waste your time :D

As always thanks for looking and feedback always appreciated :thumb

      Another exploration from the past.
       
      History
      In the area were several mining operations in the 19th century and many of the miners suffered from pulmonary tuberculosis.
      Therefore, in 1897, a sanatorium for the patients with lung disease and anemia was founded. In 1975, this sanatorium was converted into a rehabilitation clinic with physical therapy centre. It was closed in 2002.
      In January 2009, the former clinic was vandalized for the first time. Unknown people broke into the building and sprayed several fire extinguishers. The police search for the perpetrators remained fruitless.
      After many years of vacancy, there are plans to convert the building into apartments.
       
      My visit
      The large, L-shaped building had four floors and a newer extension. Exploring the interior was fascinating. The kitchen was almost completely furnished with stoves, large pots, cookware and much more. In many areas there were still furniture and interesting details, and on the lower floor the bathrooms and a swimming pool. I spent several hours there; it was lonely and quiet, and definitely a really worthwhile visit.

      This is the newer of the buildings on this site. Only the foundations of the original building remain after it was burnt down shortly after this building was completed. Sadly there is planning for it to be demolished and rebuilt the planning has changed recently to a smaller building due to lack of interest. How ever I have recently learned a full restoration progress is being taken on.
      I have also seen images of a dancing bear which was a popular attraction back in the day.
      My first explore with company. A good job as I would not of got in like the others who have gone recently. Through sheer determination of the lady that went with me we found a way in. Yes we did get stung a lot!
      This is an amazing place but really is in a bad state.
      Big thanks to Zee!!!!!!

      I got the chance to see this place with SK, and it was amazing. With the most gorgeous chimney's and fire places i have ever seen.
      I could have just moved right in.
      Thanks SK for the external shot









      Thanks for looking

      Well known and stunning.
      I actually think this place has now been given go ahead to be restored... Good news!
      A great little trundle through the countryside, a sneaky way into someones back garden, through the cellar, up through rotting floorboards and we were in!
      Love this manor house, if anyone wants to visit the UK and go here; let me know!

      A solo visit to a farm/manor house. I got seen eventually and gave a tall tale to the worker from the opposite farm. Thought I got away scott free, until the local police called my house phone and asked me what I was doing. Seems like that worker took the registration plate of my car. Idiot lol.
      Lots left behind, a beautiful house although I couldn't get into all the rooms and it was getting very very dark. Seems like the owner was also a painter!
