    The four-bedroom house, officially called Calcott Hall, in Llanymynech, Powys, Mid Wales, was grade II* listed in 1953 - more than two centuries after it was first built as a dairy farm in 1725. But according to census records, the owner, identified as Ellen Jones, died in the early 1970s and her home became a forgotten relic within its leafy surroundings, leaving behind her red dress hanging in the wardrobe hence why it has the been dubbed 'red dress manor' After the lady of the house died a gentleman took over the estate and owns it to this day but he is very old and lives in a carehome so when he goes it will more than likely become property of the council in the area

    EXPLORE
    So me and two non members had a little day out around the Shropshire area and we were put onto thin by @BrainL we kinda knew it was there seen tons of reports but he helped me out massively anyway cheers bud:thumb.
    so we were walking round the ground doing the outbuildings first plenty to see and photograph here when we heard a yelling over the fence no one clearly visible so we carried on making no noise and taking only piks , then we heard it again this time we could clearly tell it was the sound of a pissed off Welshman so we did what anyone would do hid in an outbuilding waiting for this bugger to sod off did he ?? NO... he yelled over the fence im off now to call the police in his funny little accent so time was gonna be limited me and danny hit the house while the third member bailed out and went back to the car we got everything we wanted from the place (cellar was flooded so missed a bit down there) but covered the majority anyway decent little explore and found two other explorers in there who we realised had promptly nicked the face off the grandfather clock and scarpered :banghead
    robbing little pricks any way some piks

    Some really nice pics there pal.

    Why would anyone nick the face off a clock, what possible use is there for just that bit?

    From the photo it looks like they've taken the whole mechanism, not just the face. If it's contemporary with the house (early eighteenth century) and a known maker, it could be worth thousands. Even a late 1900's one could be worth hundreds.

    Scumbags. Not explorers but plain thieves. Nice pics there.
