Some houses have seen such trauma that it’s best just to pull them down. If walls could talk, they would scream in horror. Here are some homes that were deemed too gory to remain standing:
- The house of Fred & Rosemary West
This despicable duo were serial killers who lived at Cromwell Street, Gloucester. Many suffered terribly at this address and it was decided that the building should be flattened. The site is now a public walkway. The demolition of such buildings is important, so they don’t become a macabre attraction for those obsessed with killers or ghost hunters. It’s also important for the local community to move on.
- Ariel Castro’s House
This house was the scene of multiple of kidnappings and three young women were held captive for many years. Thankfully, one escaped and the nightmare was over for the three. The locals cheered when the house was torn down. For Demolition Bristol for any purpose, visit https://www.davidhortoncontractors.co.uk/demolition/demolition-bristol/
- Myra Hindley and Ian Brady’s House
This child-killing duo were the epitome of evil during the 1960s and even once incarcerated, never revealed the location of some of the bodies causing endless pain for the families involved. The property where the pair lived stood empty for many years. Of course, nobody wished to live there. The house was demolished in 1987 and the site has stood empty since then.
- John Christie
This site was rebuilt in the late 70s to erase the terrible happenings there during the 40s and 50s. The victims of John Christie were buried about the house and garden. Perhaps the site should have been left empty after demolition as the current owner claims to have had nothing but bad luck since moving in.
