Basic Info:


The Rycroft Building, home to the local BBC affiliate pre-outbreak, was once a spectacular building with a soaring lobby, one of the only reasons residents of the depressed suburb of Spracklingbank had to boast of their home. After the outbreak, it was temporarily used as a safehouse for revivers from the now-defunct revive point Eastwick Drive. It now sits empty except for a carpet of weeds along the floor and several dead bodies.


The Rycroft Building, named for one of Malton's first mayors, James Rycroft, was built in Spracklingbank in 1952. The architect, Vaughan Architectural Design, filed for bankruptcy in 1967 after several of their buildings collapsed due to faulty design. Rycroft was abandoned, like many other of Vaughan's buildings, during this scare, and it sat vacant until 1986, when the BBC bought the building and renovated it extensively, eliminating the design flaws. The BBC owned this building until the outbreak, when it was abandoned once more.
