  2. 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

This charitable organization was dedicated to the care of many thousands of children in desperate need in the Midlands region of England, and it still operates to this day. Father Hudson was born in 1873 in Worcestershire. He was ordained a priest on 1 November 1898. From his earliest days in the small parish in Brum, Father Hudson formulated ideas to reach out and help destitute children. The Bishop knew of Father Hudson's ideas and so asked him to undertake the rescuing of the children for the Diocese of Brum. The Brum Diocesan Rescue Society was formally set up in 1902. It became known as "Father Hudson's Homes" since he was the driving force behind the operation. Father Hudson remained at Brum from 1898 to 1934. During that time it grew and expanded including St Vincent's, a home for working boys, St. Edward's Boys Home and St. Gerard's Hospital for children.
