    Hello 28DL,

    Baron Hill Mansion has been covered before, with much better photos I must admit, but I enjoyed the site so much I thought I would share.
    It is located just outside of Beaumaris on the Isle of Anglesey, if you are in the area (for St Marys or alike) I would highly recommend the visit. It felt like visiting a temple lost to the jungle, and the thought of Jumanji frequently came up when visiting.
    One word of warning, I discovered a "hobo encampment" in the outbuildings. It didn't look occupied, but had been within the past few weeks or so, I had no run in's with anyone but please be careful and polite should you encounter someone.

    Brief History (as plagiarised from Georgie60)

    Originally built 1618,reconstructed in 1776 by architect Samuel Wyatt in the Neo-Palladium Style.
    In the 19th Century the occupants were the dominant landowners of Anglesey.During the First World War Death duties soaked up most of the Family fortune and it was impossible for the then owners
    Williams Bulkeley to maintain the property.
    During the Second World War the house was occupied by Polish Soldiers...although there have been plans to turn it into apartments,
    nothing has been done to date.


    Apart from minor tree felling the site is mostly left to nature, no more construction work is obvious, although various pits have been dug in the ground for some unknown purpose (burying bodies perhaps?)

    To mix things up a bit, and to trial this idea, here is an interactive 360 panorama. Apologies for the poor, poor quality of it, it was rushed and done on my phone, I'll try harder next time!

    Without further ado:

    Beautiful and fun, there are stairs inside this but lots of masonry has collapsed into it

    This is one shot of an expansive glass house system, with lots of original features still intact but heavily rusted

    What little of the second floor remains is highly dangerous and inaccessible

    This was the typical view when looking up, as you can see there is no second floor to visit

    I hope this interests you, and not too picture heavy. It was well worth the visit!
