    The abandoned Broadoaks Manor was built in 1876 by Ernest Seth-Smith for his elder brother Charles. In 1898 the house was then sold to elderly rich industrialist and between 1911-1946 the house was owned by the brewery owners the Charrington family.

    The Ministry of Defence have confirmed that the property was originally acquired by the Ministry of Supply in 1946 and later used by the Army Operational Research Group (1948-1996). After closure in 1996 the site was sold by them in 1998 and since then has stood abandoned.

    Visited with Andy de Kay and Spidermonkey, After a long night in London with no sleep we decided to poke our heads in at this place. I’d seen shots before and admittedly was much more impressed with the exterior which I sadly did not have the chance to capture. Inside the place is quite dull and bland with only a couple of interesting rooms and features. There were clear and obvious signs of modernisation most likely from the Army use of the site with a significant portion of the building being converted to office spaces.
