    After having seen Treadstone's awesome shots I spent several hours agonising over the location of this place. I was finally put on to it by a fairly simple clue in the report - nice work Treadstone! D-Kay's report also proved to be great reading. Several weeks went by of trying to persuade our friends to give us a lift to the other side of Oxfordshire before we decided to just make a day of it and cycle the 28 miles to the manor.

    Entry was simpler than we thought it would be, but we managed to choose the hard way anyway - by going through a window and trying to climb as quietly as possible through a hole in a collapsed staircase. We laughed when we later realised we could leave through an open door right next to the window we climbed through! Regardless, this place is full of cool stuff, loads of documents, for some reason loads of new boxed lamps, issues of country life magazine dating back to 1925 and some awesome decay. Photos are mine and theWoodland's.

    Other than that, the only thing worth mentioning is that the left wing as you stand opposite the house is occupied on the bottom two floors, and that the site is being (slowly) restored, so builders come and go. Had no trouble but could definitely hear and see signs of life!

    An awesome little explore, well worth the trip, and the sore legs.

    on our first exit, we looked back to find a light on in a room close to where we had just been

    on our second exit we looked back to see a dog staring at us out the window
