THE HISTORY:- 

Taxal lodge was built in 1904 and was the home of Lt. Col. H. Ramsden  Jodrell. Who died in 1950. The lodge then became a special School. This Lodge replaced an earlier Taxal Lodge originally built futher up the valley which is long gone.
The current Taxal Lodge closed in 2005 and has been the target of Vandals ever since. decay has really set in and most the upper floors are either fallen through or very unsafe.

There is also an abuse issue at the former childrens home with a former employees being convicted.

THE VISIT:- Quick early morning visit with easy access to the site. most of the building has been trashed inside with the floors very unsafe if they are even in place!

Was this recently sir? I went about a year ago and the floors were somewhat sketchy then.

You should have a certificate or award for bravery/stupidity (delete as applicable). Top stuff as usual sir
