    Doubtful. They never really moved in to begin with. I know, you're hoping to find one of those bronze Hubbard busts, aren't you...
  2. RolandRB Member

    Or one of those gold crosses they have hidden behind the wall.

    Props would consist of: a 1960's radiogram, a Hammond organ and various LP records including The Sounds of Ulster and no less than two Max Bygraves albums.

    I am so worried about that fine listed building that I think we should make this a special weekend for Gateshead. That is make it the "Don't burn down Windmill Hills Nursing Home, Mulgrave Terrace" weekend.
  5. RolandRB Member

    Just received confirmation on the radiogram and Hammond organ.

    God, that place is so THETA(tm) it is a veritable auditing BIG WINS(tm) money-making factory for moving people up the Bridge(tm).

    The fact that that building has not been burned to the ground is proof that Anonymous members are law-abiding citizens (and do not live in Gateshead).

    Wasn't there a robbery in Gateshead some years back and they never found the loot? Maybe it is hidden in a wall someplace.

    Those pictures from the "Urban Exploration" forum really paint a very different image from the official glossy Scientology flyer, don't they?
  10. RolandRB Member

    The glossy brochure did not show the Hammond organ, that's for sure.

    I want to know why those out-ethic clams have not fully refurbished that beautiful building and have tens of parishioners there being audited up the Bridge to Total Freedom(tm). It can't cost that much. I mean just a million pounds would be enough to at least tart the place up a tad. There must be a hundred clams around there with some money so why don't they chip in 10,000 GBP each and invest in the future?

    I think Lill' Nap' should send in a mission to sort it out.

    If some young person wanders through that unsecured door and ends up injuring themselves, or worse, what does the law in UK have to say about the property owners liability?? Would such a situation bring criminal charges, e.g., creating an attractive nuisance resulting in injury or death??

  12. basil Member

    Nuisance, perhaps. Attractive? That depends whether you read the clam literature or see the building as it really is.
  13. xenubarb Member

    Nursing home? LOL what if it spontaneously filled up with old delusional people? I'd volunteer but I am still lusional.
  14. xenubarb Member

    Zimmer? I had a boyfriend in middle school named Joel Zimmer, but I released him to the wild. I haz no zimmers today. Also bananas. Haz no bananas neither.
  15. BigBeard Member

    IANAL, but my understanding is that in legaleese the term "attractive nuisance" has nothing to do with how nice a place looks. It's got to do with how likely it is to "attract" kids, or others who shouldn't be there, into a place or situation that could be dangerous to their health or life.

    And I'd still be interested in what the owners liability would be if a youngster wandered through that broken door and was injured inside the building.

  16. RolandRB Member

    Both the owner and local council have been informed so both are liable.
  17. Anonymous Member

    i c wat u did thar :)
  18. RolandRB Member

    Exactly. If something bad does happen, and it will eventually if it is left like that, then we want to make maximum capital out of it.

    I think if it burned down then this would be neglect by both parties and the building insurance would not cover it if the door had been kicked open and both parties were informed and knew that there was free access to vandals. They could be faced with the bill of rebuilding it which would cost tens of millions. They would have to sell the London Ideal Org to pay for the rebuilding and the local council would have to raise property taxes to pay their share.

    Is it possible to find out why they have taken out building insurance with? I think that company needs to be informed.

    • Neglect of former Windmills Hills Nursing Home, Mulgrave Terrace


    From: Roland Rashleigh-Berry (
    Sent: 22 May 2011 08:43:12

    Dear Sirs,

    the former Windmills Hills Nursing Home building on Mulgrave Terrace, Gateshead, NE8 1PS is in a state of neglect with a wall collapsed and with easy access to vandals as an outer door has been kicked in. As a result, this beautiful building that is part of our English heritage might suffer neglect and even destruction if nothing is done to immediately remedy the situation.

    Yours fathfully,
    Roland Rashleigh-Berry
  21. RolandRB Member

    I have a clear conscience now after I have reported it to all the right people (lacking the building insurance firm). I now know that if the building burns to the ground it will be lovingly rebuilt brick by brick to its former splendid glory to the joy of the Gateshead public (and at their expense).

    According to the "Church" (*cough*) of Scientology they have 100,000 members in Britain. So if each one chipped in just £100, they'd have ten million quid for the renovations, which should be more than enough. WHY HASN'T THIS BEEN DONE? In fact, you'd think that these ideal orgs (Birmingham? Manchester?) would have a much higher priority: after all, you can't cram more than a couple of thousand people into an event at Stain Hill. Where are all those hundred thousand Scientologists supposed to "worship" at present?

    More broken promises from Scientology. Why am I not surprised?

    Indeed. I don't know if the term exists under UK law, though.
  25. RolandRB Member

    I hope nobody puts a "Santa's Grotto" sign on the kicked-in door.

    Excellent because now there is an official record of notification and so they will know that the buildings insurance does not cover them until fixed. not that it covers them anyway if the building is left unattended for long periods. If somebody got in tonight with the door still open and it went WOOOOOOOMPFFF !!!!!! then the damages would have to be met by the clams themselves.

    It's a good job somebody like me is aware of the situation and public spirited enough to make the efforts to prevent such a disaster from ever befalling such a precious part of our heritage.

    Let me think this through......... they are providing no security or protection for that beautiful old building........ they must know it is in danger from the little yobs in the area....... they must know their building insurance is invalid if they have neglected the building...... they must know the plot of land is worth more if the building is no longer standing on it so..... errrrr.... ummm....... <churn>...... <churn>

    OMFG !!!!!!!!!!!!!
  31. BigBeard Member

    Connected the dots, did we?!?!?

  32. xenubarb Member

    Unlike some I could mention, Roland connects dots and does not include flyspecks, bees' knees, random blobs of gravy etc. Others aren't so careful. Some of Arnie's 'connect the dots' includes a lot of fly eyeballs and gnat poop.
  33. RolandRB Member

    Then they must have been hoping and waiting that some members of Anonymous would "do the deed" for them. It was probably them who kicked in the door and then when nobody entered inside, kicked the whole door out hoping, waiting, begging for somebody to come in and "do" the place but "no". Anonymous members are law-abiding people (who do not live in Gateshead) so what are they going to do now? What have they GOT to do? What would LRH do? How would the "greatest good for the greater number of dynamics" be served according to their warped logic?


    Why would they bother to collect a HUGE amount of money from their parishioners for the Ideal Org of their dreams and then neglect it such that the building got broken into and not even care about it unless it suited their plans?

    I think we are all on the same page now.
  34. afternon Member

    They thought it's all's not now!
  35. RolandRB Member

    Would "the OTs made me do it with their postulates" be a valid defence?

    If a normally mild-mannered member of the public strolled in there with a can of gas and soaked the whole stairwell until the can was dry then flicked a lighted storm match towards the structure,cackling with insane laughter only to be blasted backwards out of the kicked-in door then would they be able to sue the Church of Scientology for damage done to them by OT postulates?
  36. RolandRB Member

    I think we can all rest easy knowing that the council or owner are going to do something to secure that beautiful old building today.........

    What would be the above sign in Geordie?

    Also how about a &quot;Newcastle United Football Club Meeting Rooms&quot; ?
  37. charlie Member

    I will pop down later this week to see if its been secured .
  38. RolandRB Member

    I can't work out what is wrong with the kids in Gateshead.

    They probably use it as a drinking den for there bella .
