Haunting explore of Silverlands Orphanage ABANDONED for 17 Years | UK URBEX | 2019

My name is Sean, I am an urban explorer living in the UK, and this is my life.

☆ SUBSCRIBE for Daily (almost) uploads of me exploring abandoned buildings.

☆Silverlands was built as a large country house in 1849 by local brewer Robert Porter in Chertsey, Surrey
It was rebuilt by Vice-Admiral Sir Frederick Hotham in 1820 and became the Hotham family home
The Actors’ Orphanage, backed by Noel Coward, moved to Silverlands in 1938 and remained for 20 years
The property was also used as a nursing school to train staff for a local hospital and nearby asylum
In 2002 plans to turn the abandoned property into a clinic for paedophile were blocked by the local community. Grade Two listed Silverlands was once an orphanage home to 60 destitute children and supported by the likes of Noel Coward, Sir Laurence Olivier and Richard Attenborough.

The ornate chandeliers that hangs precariously from the ceilings and the mahogany panelling now are the only hints of the house’s former grandeur.

Despite,its glamours past the property in Chertsey, Surrey, now has boarded up windows and mould growing on the walls, as nature threatens to reclaim it.
1814 – The original large country house was built by local brewer Robert Porter.

1820 – Silverlands was rebuilt by Vice-Admiral Sir Frederick Hotham and Silverlands was the Hotham family home until around 1887.

1896 – The Actors’ Orphanage was started by Kittie Carson at Croydon and was established as the Actors’ Orphanage Fund in 1912.

1915 – The orphanage moved to Langley Hall, Berkshire, and in 1934, Noël Coward became President of the charity

1938 – The charity moved its orphanage to Silverlands in Chertsey, Surrey.

1940 – The children living in the home were evacuated to the Edwin Gould Foundation in New York, USA.

1941 – Some of the buildings became a female nurse’s school for the nearby Botley Park Asylum and St Peter’s Hospital.

1945 – The children returned to Silverlands after the end of World War II. The orphanage ran alongside the nures’s school.

1956 – Sir Laurence Olivier took over as President of the charity with Richard Attenborough as his Deputy.

1958 – The cost of major repairs needed to the building, the declining numbers of children at the home resulted in a decision to close Silverlands as an orphanage.

1990 – Silverlands Nursing School amalgamated with other schools of nursing to become the Francis Harrison College of nursing and midwifery.

Late nineties – The probation service was looking at taking over Silverlands as a clinic for paedophiles.The proposals were met by strong opposition from local people who organised a candle lit vigil in protest.

2002 – The Ministry of Justice announced that Silverlands was no longer being considered for the clinic. Abandoned ever since.
