Care home to replace troubled Little John pub in Bradley
Oct 8 2008 By Emma Davison
A CARE home being built on the former site of a troubled pub is set to breathe new life into the area.
Work on constructing Hampton House is well under way on the Keldregate site, in Bradley.
It is expected to be completed by early January next year.
It was once the site of the Little John pub, which was closed two years ago after it became a centre for anti-social behaviour, drugs and violence.
It was demolished in March this year after Horizon Healthcare applied to build a new residential care home in its place.
The high-quality care home, being built by its sister company HHP Developments, is expected to open for business next March.
It will cater for adults living in Kirklees with learning and physical disabilities.
It will have ten en-suite bedrooms, assisted bathrooms, offices and accommodation for nursing staff.
The new care home will mirror Horizon Healthcare’s first care home, Langley Lodge, at Deighton Road, Deighton, which was opened in April last year.
