Exploring an ABANDONED ORPHANAGE built 1807 England

Our latest Urbex adventure took us back to West Yorkshire . We were overdue a visit, as we haven’t been in the West Riding since our first YouTube video exploring an abandoned metal hospital (High Royds Insane Asylum UK). So with a map full of locations and our heads full of Urbex dreams, we hit the road. First Stop… It’s Bramham House Abandoned Orphanage.

Bramham House was built in 1807 by the Vicar of Bramham, Rev. Robert Bownas. The house had numerous owners throughout the 19th century and the early 20th century. It wasn’t until 1947 that Bramham House became an orphanage, after being purchased by the West Riding County Council Children’s Department…

Children were sent to live at Bramham House Orphanage for various reasons, such as; Neglect, homelessness, family troubles, educational problems and truancy…
The orphanage closed in the early 1980’s and the children were moved to another home in Wetherby, that has since closed.

Bramham House had one little surprise left for us… Found ancient, secret doorway in the woods.
That’s all from the abandoned orphanage. As far gone as it was, it was a very beautiful place. Highly photogenic, as the lack of a roof offered some fantastic lighting. I’m glad I got to see Bramham House Orphanage before it disappears forever.
That’s only the first location from our latest West Yorkshire adventure. Still to come… An abandoned Borstal (children’s prison). So keep a keen eye out.
