Hello OS. Been holding this one back a little while, but after a few visits I've had the chance to 'get the pics I wish I got the last time' etc. First visit in mid 2014, second and third in '15

:) Such a nice place, can't seem to keep away. Visited with: MrDan, ZeroUE, M Thornley, Infiltr8, WoofooPix, Brutas and Gaz.

History: Silverlands was built in the 1800s and has had an interesting history. It was a private home, an actors orphanage and a nurse training school. The training school finally closed in the 1990s.

In 2001 there were plans to turn it into a clinic for convicted paedophiles. Local residents protested against it, being so close to local schools. During the protests, the house received a £3 million re-furb for it’s new role. But in 2002 the protests paid off and Parliament decided to end the conversion. It has remained empty ever since.

Pics:

Strange how it's been the same for so long and not been totally destroyed..

Cheers (y)

That's a hell of a place and nicely done. I know from experience there how tricky it is to get as much composed in frame as you have done!
