Why does it take 8 months for the Council to bring a proposal forward to sell land when they decided last October that it was surplus – are they delaying sales so that capital receipts appear in different financial years
Being serious for once, I understand the terrible history of the place and would understand if any of the victims would want it raised to the ground, but on the other hand it is a fantastic piece of 17th century architect and it would be a shame if it were lost to little lego brick 2 up and 2 downs. If every building with a bad history was to be destroyed, London for instance would be a waste land with the Tower the first to be bulldozed!
Although it may look a lovely building to some people the walls inside hold the horrific tales of abuse that had taken place when it was operating as a childrens home. Kids crying themselves to sleep at night, others frightened to close their eyes, waiting for filthy hands to carry them away into the night. I say demolish it, but Wrexham Council don’t sell off the land for your own financial gain, sell it off and compensate the victims with the money made, for the horrific injustices that took place under the roof of that so called delightful building.
While the Walled Garden is under a lease, that lease could be sold off as and when building work starts.
Social Services have already made some enquiries about the enterprise moving across the by-pass to the Millennium EcoCentre.
The walled gardens show up on maps in 1838 and they reckon they are over 200 years old
