    Having heard so much about this place including some recent information that it was all boarded up and the having the builders in, well I had to go and take a look for myself. For starters there are no builders and access is easy as can be. There are also around eight various Jaguar cars at the rear of the property and are worth photographing too.

    So a little history.

    Built in 1869 by Mr Henry Hoyle Hardman who was the son of George Hardman. Henry died in 1888 but his wife Emily continued to live there until she died a few years later in 1896. The house passed to Annie Hardman, and she lived there until about 1903. The house and its contents were then sold to a Mr. Roland Rawlinson.

    Lancashire County Council operated a care home for the elderly at the house until some time in the 1980s. The home was sold in 1993 and was turned into a hotel and function venue. The company that owned the property was dissolved on June 2009 and the hotel was closed.

    The house is safe enough to walk around without issues, every room is trashed but some more than others and there's still plenty of detail to be captured. Hope you enjoy the images.

    Myself & a group of friends went here last night. It's pretty much impossible to get to the second floor using the stairs now as most of them are broken, quite unsafe. The outside is just a graveyard for classic cars, quite sad to see so many of them just rot away. Hoping to go back during the day at some point. You captured some really good pictures! :)
