Spotted this while out and about so popped in for a look, not a great deal left behind
In the middle of a small town on the Shropshire border
Had to be fairly quiet as it is surrounded by houses
Looks like its not been lived in for a couple of years
A stable block out back, loads of TV sets and old Playstation mags , one of which gives the name I gave the place
thanks for looking
I stumbled on this house a few years ago right after I got my first DSLR. When I was walking around outside a passerby asked me if I saw a little girl in the window as everybody says they see a ghost there. Whatever. Went in and took a bunch of pics (quality isn't that great as I didn't know what I was doing, hadn't discovered the RAW format yet, and had my settings a bit off) and forgot all about it...until a year or so later I saw an article that it had burnt down about a month after I was there and read the story. Obviously saw the name on the wall, but having grown up a few hours away I hadn't heard the local legend of the crimes and the location.
Depending on where you read Nathanial White either lived here, buried 2 of the victims in the house, or both. Some say he lived here and the bodies were discovered in a field a bit behind the house, others say this place was already abandoned and he hid 2 bodies there. Not sure exactly which is true, but you could see the house from a major highway so I stopped to take a few quick pics but was a bit spooked by the passerby. Not because of the ghost rumor, but rather being reported to be snooping around.
An independent members only club, dedicated to the working man who required a certain place for private meetings and events.
This place has a little bit of everything. Dark, creepy unlit rooms, and rooms where light was still flourishing through the gaps and crevices.
It has had many aliases since the buildings birth in the 1920's and had less than 300 members.
Along the many years the workmens club was usually packed full of people, to the point you couldn't even move.
Slowly but surely however the club started to lose money as members became scarce. It couldn't pay it's own way and since the number of members started dwindling,
the Workmans club had to close its doors to the few remaining loyal members.
Now sits empty and has done for more than 6 years now.
Hopefully the building can see new life in the near future, but for me it was good to get an unusual view of the club.
Cheers for looking!
