The Cottage residential care home, Hull

Former cottage home, Hull:

Hull care home

This building was lost last year but went under my radar.

One of a number of cottage homes for orphans in this area, that have been left to the elements and have subsequently been demolished, development of this site is now in the planning process. The buildings were afforded protection under a local listing status, but this goes to show that nothing is safe, if left in disrepair.

Props to the conservation officer, Philip Hampel, who has put the time into a detailed response, giving some historical context to the site and daring to note that the replacement dwellings are unsympathetic to the context, and disrupt the rhythm of the street front.
