    Is this the same redwood that has the gym/sports centre? Is that closing down too or just the hotel?

    Do not go unless you want to be met by 8 police officers and a dog.
    Was easy access to the grounds but when we left we had a army of police waiting.
    Apparently the place is on red hot alert due to numerous break ins by thief's and got so bad people were even stealing the lead..

    Thanks for the heads up.

    Did you get arrested and was it worth it though? Anything interesting? Any photos?

    The lead's usually the first thing to go. It's when people are stealing chairs that it gets silly.

    Not that I've ever stolen anything valuable from an urbex site, but I'm a Furniture Designer and I've seen so many urbex photos with stacks of very valuable furniture just left in some genuinely abandoned buildings.
