IMO knocking it down when it can be restored to full use by another family that are desperate for one of the few houses we have left in our housing stock is a waste.

Yes its a shame what happened to the kids but I dont think the house should pay for it.

Matty do you think that anyone would want to live there after what happened? My first thoughts were as yours.

Re: What a waste!

theres probably another reason for that as well ... there are some people out there who may think that they were right and treat it as a whachamaycallit ... shrine to the Philpotts or to the children ...

Re: What a waste!

Yes I do, there are many thousands that are desperately seeking a house and are not concerned with the history. From locals with large families living in flats to visitors to the UK.

It was not the house that killed these kids but the father/mother and society has taken action against them, once repaired the house can easily be lived in.

Many other houses have been reused after similar horrific murders.
By all means put up a memorial somewhere but not at the expense of the house.

IMO Knocking it down will neither bring back the kids or help people forget.

Also what about the neighbouring house? What is to happen to that attached house - will that be knocked down too? Wasting 2 of the council houses that we have so few of.

I try to keep out of things where people and kids are killed because it saddens me however demolishing a house for reasons like this also sadden me because I hate wasting our resources. (I am not putting the house above the kids lives.)

A shrine to the Philpotts Spooks?

You can't really believe that can you?

Do you actually believe that there would be a single, solitary person in the country who would think that what happened was right?

I'm dumbfounded that anyone could even think that. I'm sure your post is just badly worded.

I'm sure it is.

I doubt very much that anyone local would want to live in that house. Maybe someone who had no previous knowledge of what happened there would, but that's not going to last for long is it?

No, knock it down in my opinion.

Re: What a waste!

Fred Wests house?

The same applied there.
We cater too much to nambyism and sentimentality.
Remember - this is about the house and not what happened there.

Not everyone cases what happened in a house beforehand and as Spooks says - some actually like properties with a past.

Re: What a waste!

Liking a house or wanting to live in a house with a murderous past shpws some sort of sickness.
