Looking back, across the admin block, and towards the right wing, the full extent
of the boarded up windows can be seen. Again, the only damaged room was the Entrance Hall -
why were all the other windows boarded up?
Rubbish can be seen piled up outside the front door.
I wonder who opened all the windows? As can be seen, all the second floor windows are
now open, letting in the elements.
Now boarded up are the Committee Room and Committee Dining Room (the
outjutting part of the wing). Posh luncheons and a
great view of the Downs - Cane Hill was
pretty classy when first built. Also occupying this wing was the
Administration Office, whilst the
Recreation Officer sulked in the basement.
2009: One of the original ideas for the website was to link an exterior, perimeter
walk with subsequent pictures taken inside the buildings themselves. I hoped to build up a web of pages which allowed
an armchair explorer to be able to click on places of interest, and move inside and outside of the buildings
It turned out to be too much work and I abandoned it. Itís only this tour which features this linking idea which
can be seen above.
