UK asbestos house , midlands 2017

Recommended Posts

not much history to find on this house , somewhere in the midlands

couldnt get a decent external shot due to the ammount of growth round it,

the house was one of those prefab jobs made from fibre board containing white asbestos

i liked the wallpaper in some rooms it was very 1970s

old nova in the garage and caravan thats seen better times in the jungle of a garden

bit pic heavy as there was a few bits to see

Sad to see this sort of thing.. Obviously some old person, that died after living out many years alone. The car was presumably bought when they retired. The tax ran out 9 years ago..

 

You can tell they were an intelligent, well to do type, by the stuff in the house. The musical instrument reeds, and the cartridge cases. One looks like a .303 and the other maybe a .308..

 

The nursing contributions book dated 1946/47/48...  if you go from 1946 it is about 43 years until the car was made, and the tax ran out 9 years ago. Sooo i would say they were born in about 1926, started nursing in about 1947, did 44 years and retired at 65 in 1991 and bought the car brand new, and, as the tax ran out 9 years ago, i guess they died at about 84 years of age. You can tell they were a single bloke, by the stuff in the house having being untouched since about 1950 by the look of it and i doubt many women would run about with a full bore sporting rifle either.

 

The photos must be their parents and siblings.. I like the balsa rubber powered model aircraft kit. That would be from the 1960's i would guess..

 

Seems a terrible way for someones life to end up..

some of the papers and bits all leave clues as to who the people were and the lives they lived , thats why i enjoy this hobby , capturing the whats left ,

there is a gun cabinet next to the coat on the door, it was locked contents unknown

Oh yes! i never noticed the gun cabinet. After the occupant left, his cert would have expired at some stage, and the police would have been round. You need "good reason" now for shotgun certs, and you have always needed it for a firearms cert, and the police check, so if he was no longer in a club or what ever, they would not have renewed the certs anyway..

 

Lovely photos though!! Well done you!!

      First a little History [you all know it, but it's good to include anyway] 😃
       
      The Dispensary – the first public hospital in North Staffordshire – opened in Etruria in April 1804 and was funded in part by the Wedgewood family. It gave sick patients the chance to see an Apothecary for diagnosis and treatment. It also provided vaccination against the dreaded smallpox, thanks to the pioneering work of Dr Edward Jenner. Shortly afterwards the 11-bed House of Recovery was opened for fever patients, followed by facilities to treat general and accident patients.
      The hospital continued to expand, due to a steady flow of general illness cases, accidents in the pottery, mining and iron industries and diseases caused by lead and dust. In 1819 it moved to a bigger site in Etruria. By this point it employed a small team of support staff, including a matron and nurses, and ran education programmes urging mine and factory owners to improve their safety standards. Thanks to new ideas about infection control, the building - surrounded by polluting factories - was increasingly seen as unsuitable for patients and was also at risk of collapse from heavy undermining. Eventually, the decision was made to move the infirmary to Hartshill. The clean, quiet suburb became home in 1869 to the North Staffordshire Royal Infirmary, which later merged with the City General Hospital to form the University Hospital of North Staffordshire – now the Royal Stoke University Hospital. Previously the hospital was known as The North Staffordshire Infirmary and Eye Hospital (1815 - 1911) as well as The North Staffordshire Infirmary (1912 - 1926). 
      The building closed down as a medical facility in 2012 as part of the super-hospital development at the Royal Stoke University Hospital.
       
      The explore: Visited with David [ Scrappy ]. It rained, a lot. 😀
      The morgue was a bit of a let down as the slabs had recently been removed and placed in a nearby corridor in front of the fridges. Oh well....
       
      On to the photographs, hope you enjoy:

      HMP Holloway was the largest women’s only prison in Europe until its closure in 2016. Rebuilt between 1971 to 1985, the prison's design was intended to produce an atmosphere more like a hospital than a prison. This design was recognised as a failure in the 1980s as its lack of traditional wings or landings, and a maze of corridors, means warders had difficulty monitoring inmates.
       


      Entrance to the rebuilt prison (CC Licence)  
      The history of Holloway dates back to 1852 when the original prison opened as a mixed-sex establishment, but due to the increasing demand for space for female prisoners, it became female-only in 1903. Inmates of the original prison included Oscar Wilde, and more recently Moors murderess Myra Hindley from 1966.
       


      The original Holloway Prison (public domain image)  
      Holding female adults and young offenders either sentenced by the courts or being held on remand, the prison consisted mostly of single cells, but there was also various dormitory accommodation. In January 2016 an inquest into the death of Sarah Reed, a paranoid schizophrenic being held on remand, identified failings in the care system. The prison was closed in July 2016, with plans for it to be sold for housing.
       
      Time to start the unofficial tour....


      Wandering between the modern buildings within the prison grounds 

      Let's head straight into the cells...


      Dorm room


      Single prisoner cell


      Another dorm room


      Mural in one of the many winding corridors


      Twin room


      Lots of peely paint in some places


      There were several styles of cell


       
      Entrance into the prison...


      Prisoner transport vehicles would park inside this area, and the gates closed behind them


      The front entrance leads into this area, with a command room behind the glass


      Corridors lead into the prison


      Each area separated by iron gates

      Prisoner amenities and facilities


      Entrance into the "family friendly" visitor centre.


      Visitors and prisoners could be kept separated in these divided rooms


      The prison had a swimming pool for prisoners to use


      And gym facilities


      The glazed walkway was decorated by inmates


      The prison had a medical ward, including its own opticians


      Pharmacy


      Covered walkway leading to the chapel. Note the high-security walls


      The chapel was large but pretty basic


      More inmate artwork


      Mural inside one of the rooms


      A room for presentations


      The prison's boiler house


      Exterior of the buildings within the prison walls


      High fences divided the exterior areas

      wanted to see this one for a few years , nice ammount of natural decay has taken over
      the main hut has now collapsed , older pics from here show it still dtanding but i think last winters snow done it in
       i know there are still more huts further down the site but the brambles prevented getting to them
      one of the floors was so rotten when i put my foot on it it went straight through and ate half my shoe, had to do a days exploring with only one and a half shoes .

      Hi Guys,
       
      So here it is again, this place must get at least one visit a week now.  But  I had to check it out for myself.  I thought it would be interesting to visit the place all alone,  because of the remoteness. Its still in not bad shape, with no graffiti anywhere yet.  Just a few things seem to have been stolen since 2015, like the famous pocket watches.  Its still a great place to visit, and walk to across the boggy water logged fields.
