    This was the second and last visit of the day after an early morning start. I came here with @Lavino and a non member Tom. This was a back up plan just in case our main explore was a fail (We managed to get into our main but we still went anyway :rolleyes: ). After the recent drug raid on the place we was un-sure if the access was possible but we did manage to gain entry. Once inside we were very surprised at the amount of stuff that was left behind it was as if the previous owners just got up and left the place. We managed to find the stairs to get up to the upper floors which are quite well hidden in the vast amount of rooms and corridors. The place itself was in complete darkness due to recent events so the place has been completely sealed. Here are a few pictures and history hope you enjoy.

    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.

    we got escorted off the premises by police on sunday due to another party being there and they had parked at the front gate and climbed over the fence but been seen from the house accross the road.i got the impression they were looking for scrap not exploring and the 15 nice police officers that turned up to remove 6 people arrested them for something while we got a lift back to our car

    If they didn't take your name and address then they cant really prove you have already been there.
