UK Malvernbury Care Home, Worcs, December 2014

Recommended Posts

So here is my overdue report from this late December, pre Christmas explore with Mookster.

I had been visiting a friend in hospital in Bristol and staying over another friends house just outside of Bristol.

Mookster and I decided an explore was on the cards so I went to pick him up not thinking that his house was 75 miles in the wrong direction, and 75 miles back up the same roads to get to the first, I had an incling but my Christmas spirit kicked in and I collected him.

First stop was an old Carehome in Malvern, Worcestershire. Mooks had visited this in 2011 and it was in perfect condition, but three years had taken its toll and the site was in a horrific state, yet beautifully decayed at the same time.

Other reports and Yellow Pages suggest a 2001/2 closure but paperwork inside prooves a 2008/9 closure is more likely.

A 2008/9 closure? Amazing how a place slips into decay so quickly isn't it!

The light in number 8 for the win :cool:

i was actually lucky enough to discover this beauty a few years ago, and reported on it..its a few miles from me. When i went it was like they had just gone out for tea lol...i look at it now and it actually appeals to me more but thats because im not a fan of clean cut places...However ..its a big shame that the place has been left to be stripped and vandalised..some pics are below so you can compare..

      It’s been a while for various reasons but I am back and hitting the “move along, nothing to see here” central resource library… no seriously, nothing to see here.
       
      So after a brief chat with who turned out to be a long time reader and follower through instagram, we chose a spot to meet and hit the central resource library.
       
      Now to be honest, I was pre warned over a year ago that this place is absolutely trashed and I can confirm exactly that but it’s one I can now tick off the list.
       
      There’s not much to see, unless smashed windows and terrible graffiti is your thing so there is a lack of photos and hardly warranting a report, but here we go anyway!
       
      History wise? It’s a library… it closed and moved to a new location, that’s pretty much all I can say!

      Only a few quick shots, taken without a tripod.
      I don't know when the chapel (called "Capel Zinc") was built, it was a subsidiary tabernacle for the now Holy Trinity Church in Corris.
      Chairs has been removed and apparently the property is now used by a flower grower.
      Visited with @The_Raw and @Miss.Anthrope.

      Thankful there was enough remaining to grab some shots and at the same time have a good giggle
      Splored With Lara,Trog and peaches






      In the back area of the stage Lara found some costumes and the silliness began.
      Beds began to roll up and down the corridors .
       

       
      Better not to ask

      I nearly ran straight into secca.
      At first i thought it was another fool dressed up but as Sindbad
      Then realized he was a Sihk Secca lol

      This fella was either as deaf as a post or turned a blind eye & I wasnt fussed with either.
      As was more to see and we put a bit of distance between us and the now named Turbanator.








      Cheers for looking in

      History 
       
      The engineering company J.E. Billups of Cardiff who also constructed Mireystock Bridge and the masonry work on the Lydbrook viaduct commenced construction of the tunnel in 1872 using forest stone. The tunnel is 221 metres in length and took 2 years to construct. The tunnel allowed the connection of the Severn and Wye Valley railway running from Lydney with the Ross and Monmouth network at Lydbrook. The first mineral train passed through the tunnel on 16 August 1874. Passenger services commenced in September 1875 pulled by the engine Robin Hood.
       
      The history of this section of line is not without incident - a railway ganger was killed in the tunnel by a train in 1893 and a locomotive was derailed by a fallen block of stone in the cutting at the northern entrance in 1898.
      The line officially closed to passenger trains in July 1929 but goods trains continued to use the line until the closure of Arthur & Edward Colliery at Waterloo in 1959 and Cannop Colliery in 1960. Lifting of the track was completed in 1962. The tunnel and cutting were buried with spoil in the early 1970's.
       
      Thanks to the vision and enthusiasm of a group of local Forest railway enthusiasts assisted by Forest Enterprise the top of the northern portal of the tunnel (with its unusual elliptical shape) which has lain buried for 30 years has now been exposed. 
      As of 2018 the tunnel now still lays abandoned with no sign of the cycle track and the £50,000 funding seemingly gone to waste.
