    After spending a good 5 hours in High Royds (report here) and filling ourselves up on pub lunch we headed out to Bramham and promptly got lost.

    An annoyed (and annoying) landrover driver, some lost Leeds Fest hipsters and a couple of u-turns later we spotted the house; as we were driving past it. We gave up on roads parked up and walked.

    We started with the ambulance station then moved onto the house. It's all pretty well trashed, but still worth a visit as its a great building and there are a few bits to see still.

    Bramham House was built in 1806 by a rich vicar, he sold it to James Fox (of Bramham Park) in 1814 who then gave it to his son George as a wedding present. George was a bit rubbish and ran up over £230,000 (about £160m today) in debt, it was still kept in the family until 1856, when George (Jnr.) sold it. It then went through a succession of sales and owners until 1947 when it was bought by West Riding County Council to be turned into a home for neglected and homeless children. The house closed in the early 80s and has stood derelict since.

    Loads more history over here.
