There could be a brighter future ahead for Ely House in Wisbech as a mass clean up in underway.
In a post on Wisbech Community Chest, it states that work is underway to "save" the site which has been subject to squatters, drug abuse and rats in recent months.
It is claimed that a new order is now on the property, meaning any unauthorised access could mean an arrest for trespassers.
Rat traps are in place and drug paraphernalia has also been cleared from the garden.
The post reads: "Hopefully this is now the beginning of a start to save Ely House.
