    These Pictures are part of a permitted visit to the location which has been converted to a Airsoft CQB site. The site has really seen better days with main areas just being too dangerous to venture around. There are previous reports to the location and will try not to repeat any pictures listed in that. since the theft of my laptop, many of the other locations i have visited have been lost - Here is what i had remaining.


    History:
    Daresbury Hall is a 35 acre site and was built back in 1759 where for most of its life it has stood as a stately home. During World War 2 the estate was converted to be used as a military hospital. After the war the estate was sold to the national spastic’s society now known as scope and used as both a care home and school. Many years later, it was sold to a private buyer and returned to a stately home. But sadly, due to poor maintained the buildings have fallen into a state of disrepair and stand uninhabitable. To the present date Daresbury Hall has been designated by English Heritage as a grade II listed building and seeks planning permission to be restored.

    This is the main building of Daresbury Hall - there are a number of buildings attached.

    Old staffing accommodation located at the front of the hall, again the only possible outcome for the building is to be demolished.

    There are three separate stable blocks located to the rear of the Main Hall
