  1. The History Stolen from @Buffalo Formerly known as Waldern Heath, the 85-bed home lost its nursing registration in July 2014, after CQC took enforcement action due to the poor quality of treatment uncovered in an inspection that took place early July. As a result of the closure, 28 elderly residents have been relocated to other care facilities. The care home was criticized by the CQC in a report published in June 2014 which found it failed to ensure people's safety and welfare. Inspectors found that some staff had a limited understanding of the English language and failed to recognize urgent situations, including incidences where ambulances needed to be called. There were also additional concerns about serious incidents including an unexpected death of a resident, and an individual escaping the building, as well as somebody choking to death which was followed by an investigation which is currently ongoing. In June 2016, a fire broke out at the former care home. Firefighters have not established the cause of the fire as of yet and due to the unstable building they have not yet been able to enter the property, however 2 teenagers have been arrested on suspicion of arson, who have been released on bail while evidence is being reviewed. The explore The explore was pretty straight forward, nothing crazy. Security caught us fairly early on so I didn't have the chance to take many photos, thought it was worth a quick share anyway. The place was f*cked in some parts due to to fire damage, the stained glass was pretty at least. Thanks for looking
  2. Not a huge amount to say about this place, just wanted to share a few photos. Came here with @Buffalo Explore was pretty straight forward, nothing much left of the place it was still worth a quick visit though. Thanks for looking
  3. History Bramham House was originally built as a family home in 1806. It was later purchased by the West Riding County Council Children's Department in approximately 1947, who converted it into an orphanage for neglected and homeless children. 35 children were being looked after at the orphanage by 1970, however in 1974, Leeds City Council took over the running of the home which resulted in a change of the admission policy, which subsequently caused many issues. The house shut in the 1980's, and the children moved to a home in Wetherby, which has since been demolished. This building has been categorised as being at risk, and is capable of re-use. The Explore I came here with @Buffalo, as a last minute trip to Tadcaster. The place was quite far gone and it looked fairly trashed but it was quite an interesting building to look at. We even bumped into some friendly chavs trying to find a way into the building!
