Weekend reflections in black and white: Norbury House


Norbury House was a residential care home but is now closed and has been for a few years.

Whilst the front door may be boarded up, the glass in the windows still reflects the surrounding trees.

See how it looked two years ago on Hyde DP Xtra.

  1. It's always a shame to see a fine building started on the road to decay. It looked more cared-for in your earlier photo. I love the reflections in the windows.

  7. It looks to be too nice a house to end up like this. I hope the door can be "unboarded".
