    Visited this with my better half one afternoon last month.

    After a nice wander through some private woodland and getting lost several times we eventually found the building.

    A little bit of history:

    Built in the 1820s or 1830s in red brick for Philip Bennet to replace an earlier house on a different site. Extensions were added in the late 19th century. In 1905 the estate was acquired by Sir George Agnew and has remained in the family's ownership since that date.

    At the beginning of WW2 the house was taken over by the military but hit by a bomb in September 1940 during a series Luftwaffe raids on the area where an ammunition dump was being established. The house has remained derelict. In 1975 the west tower was demolished


    You can see the evidence of the bomb blast in whats left of the building, the large cracks in the walls are really interesting.

    On the way back out of the woods a couple of contractors vans approached us, I was expecting them to tell us we were trespassing and was lining up a "oh sorry I seem to have got lost" story but instead it seemed they couldn't be bothered and just drove right past.

    That's a pretty knackered place, were any of the upstairs floors still sound?

    Nope, there was only the one room with part of an upper floor left and it didn't look great. It's still worth a look though, really interesting place.
