Apparently , according to posts on Leodis, it was St Alban's Vicarage before it was a pub.


Ah. See - if there'd been tinterweb when that happened there'd have been an outcry. 'T'old Vicarage? A boozer?'


There is enough sadness in life without having fellows like Gussie Fink-Nottle going about in sea boots.

6 years !!
How time flies.
There was a sign saying it would be care home.


Site badly overgrown AND up for sale again
Consciousness: That annoying time between naps.

There has been a couple of planning apps to build a care home.
Work has recently started to clear to site which was VERY overgrown
There is an excavator inside the compound.
8 years or so since closure/demolition.

If my old Mam ans Dad were still alive I'm sure she would say it was his second care home as he did like to spend a bit of time in there.
