The Cottage residential care home, Hull
Former cottage home, Hull:
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.
This is no 2054 Hessle Road Hull the former Hull Council for Voluntary Youth Services property which was demolished in 2019, The Cottage Residential Home was next door at 2050/2 and was demolished in 2018, both were part of the former Hessle Cottage Homes development of 1897. The remaining buildings 2056/8, 2064 & 2066/8 appear to free of threat of demolition at the moment!
That you for you comment. Can you confirm if the building pictured is still standing, or has been lost
