On the way to a family get-together for my Uncle and Aunt’s wedding anniversary celebrations in Birmingham, Dora P and I decided to use the opportunity to do a quick explore of this former nursing home on the outskirts of Brum.

The Father Hudson’s Society was established by catholic priest George Vincent Hudson in 1902, and a history of the Society can be read here.

Sadly, St. Mary’s was subject to an arson attack earlier this year, and the place has most definitely seen better days – the phrase “polishing a turd” sprang to mind more than once when I was sorting through these photos.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy… look out for my next two posts coming soon which will offer far more interesting and photogenic subject matters!

As always, thanks for looking.
