    This is my first report that I've posted on 28D although I've been exploring for a few years now.

    This is perhaps one of the most amazing locations I’ve ever explored. The so-called Dragon Lodge lies off a small road that contours around the top of the Peak on Hong Kong Island. Built before World War II, the place has a chequered history. Apparently the original owner went bankrupt while the second owner died in the house. After that the Japanese occupied the property and rumour has it that they decapitated several Catholic nuns in the front garden. A couple of decades later in the late 60s, the property became victim of a ‘pump and dump' scheme. It was last purchased in 2004 for a staggering HK$76 million (about £5.5m).

    There is a belief by some that, given the house’s history, the place is haunted. A former resident who lived at the Lodge in the 1970s recalled seeing a ghost child and hearing her crying. She wrote on her blog “there was something very sorrowful about the child as she seemed to be asking for help”. The house has been on the market a number of times and at one stage was being redeveloped. However the restoration stopped and the lodge again finds itself abandoned. Here’s a picture of what it looked like during the height of its restoration – gives you a good idea of how grand this place was and how grand it could be again if someone bought it and did it up.

    Really enjoyed this explore. Took the railway up the Peak then set off on the Harlech Road Fitness Trail to reach my destination. A big up to the guys at HK Urbex for the head’s up on this place. Didn’t manage to meet up with them for an explore but was good to make contact with them Check their site out here:
