The strange and mysterious abandoned ‘doctor’s house
A shocking discovery in the UK of a Mysterious abandoned ‘doctor’s house’ that has five vintage cars in the garage is a modern day mystery.
The mansion in Hampole, near Doncaster, UK which has been dubbed the ‘doctor’s house’ by locals, is filled with old magazines, obsolete technology and vintage cars which are rusting away.
Its state rooms are falling apart, while the swimming pool is covered with moss. The previous owner is also connected to a strange murder mystery.
The last occupant’s interest in cars is shown by the five vintage cars left in the garage and elsewhere on the property, including a Marcos 1800GT and a 1964 Humber Super Snipe Series IV
The building, which is known as both ‘Manor House’ and ‘Ivy Farm Manor’, is believed to have belonged to a notorious psychiatrist who once discharged a patient two days before she killed an 11-year-old girl.
Neil Silvester authorised the release of Carol Barratt from psychiatric care in April 1991 even though she had threatened a young girl with a knife and tried to strangle a medic.
The 24-year-old patient then randomly attacked schoolgirl Emma Brodie and stabbed her to death in a Doncaster shopping centre.
An inquiry found that Dr Silvester had made ‘a serious error of clinical judgement’ and he seems to have moved out of his Hampole home soon afterwards, although he continued to practice at Doncaster Royal Infirmary.
Rumours suggest that locals drove Dr Silvester from his home and trashed it.
Strangely, it later emerged that he had been short-listed for one of the annual awards given by national newspaper Hospital Doctor. However Dr Silvester nominated himself and members of his team for achievements at the DRI’s psychiatric unit.
