UK Alexander Court Care Home, Harrogate, July 2016

Recommended Posts

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.

Unfortunately very destroyed due to the fire. But I like the window and the stairs.

      Hi all. We have invested in a new camera and went out during the night to see how well it can handle the low light images. The result was actually rather impressive! So please enjoy the snaps we managed to get.
      It isn't a new area, but it is a good place to get some shots. Feel free to let us know which pic you guys like!

      Keep in touch to see some new places real soon. Cheers,
      C

      Falcon house. It's been in Swindon since the early days of this towns birth and has been sat empty and abandoned for 16 years.  
      It was said to be the very first headquarters for the well known company zurich, an insurance company, but was promptly moved to a more practical and efficient property.
      The old office block is situated in Swindon town centre on top of a car park right near the entrance to town, which is an eye sore to some but a worthy explore for us. 
      There was nothing much left, only old phones and some really old school computer stuff. 
      It was the view at the end of the video that made it all worth it, being the second highest point in the town aside from the john murray building.  What a view! 
      So please enjoy this video by my good friend and make sure to check out the channel! Have fun out there,

      Snowdown was the deepest colliery in Kent reaching well over 3,000 ft (915 metres). It was also the hottest and most humid pit in Kent and was given the name 'Dante's Inferno' by the miners. Regarded by many as the worst pit to work at in Britain, most Snowdown miners worked naked because clothes became too uncomfortable. The miners could consume around 24 pints (14 lires) of water in an 8-hour shift. There were frequent cases of heat stroke.

      Snowdown closed in 1987

      What's left of the south marston hotel, remains an empty, scorched shell. Not much to see on this one, and I am way to late but hey, it still provides an eerie vibe. And the photos came out pretty good too. Thanks,
