An English man dared to enter the Silverlands Manor, also known as “The Actor’s Orphanage.” What he discovered was super creepy.
Silverlands is a large country house in Chertsey, Surrey. According to the “Abandoned UK” YouTube channel that posted the video, the exact date of the building’s construction is unknown, but it was around the year 1820. However, an estate has existed on this site under the name of “Silverlond” since at least 1420.
The building had been operating as an orphanage for years (you can read all about it on the video YouTube page), but its recent history is more controversial. “After having served as an orphanage and a nurses training college for much of the latter 20th Century, in 2001 plans were made to relocate patients from Wolvercote Clinic for convicted pedophiles.” With 23 schools located within 2.5 miles of the Silverlands estate, this concept caused a local outrage, and residents began protesting. “After a lot of debating and protests on 4th July, 2002, it was confirmed by the Home Office Minister that Silverlands will not become the home of the Wolvercote pedophile clinic.”
According the shooter had heard that it was nearly impossible to get inside, and many people had been caught trespassing. But he found a way in, sneaked up the internal stairwell to the roof, then began exploring from the top down. The video reveals the once-beautiful mansion has now turned into a complete leaky mess.
