ABC Wednesday: R is for the Ruins of Charlotte House Residential Care Home


The ruins of Charlotte House, a care home on Albert Road. It caught fire in the early hours of the 16th December 2010. The home was in the process of being closed down and only a few residents were still living there. They all escaped safely but the building now faces demolition.

I showed you a wider view of this in May and it doesn't look much different now.

For more R posts visit ABC Wednesday.

  9. Are building materials recycled in your area? Certainly the bricks could be reused and probably interior fittings too. We have a couple of businesses here that recycle all categories of architectural materials. I hate to think of all this wonderful material with the patina of time end up in the dump (I think you say "tip").

  10. That's a real shame... it looks like a unique piece of architecture. ODP sure has a good point.
