    Whilst on a recent Business trip, whilst driving through the town of Kegworth (Derbyshire), I spotted some old cars in a yard at the side of a building. Some internet research shows that the house is very old, and has an interesting history. It's called 'The Great House' and is on London Road in Kegworth. Apologies if it's already known about.

    I did some research as I want to buy one of the particular cars in the yard at the side, and I have the owners name and address.

    As far as I'm aware, he still uses the yard on a daily basis, but the house is not live? I apologise if this is incorrect, as I see someone has some info on this site?

    I tired that , and you blocked me for being smart enough to figure out a location from photos.

    Also If you're going to message me back , give me the chance to reply before you block me!

    DBTH-I blocked you because I was sick of your cocky questions, remarks and manor.
    Lets not get started on that though hey?-might open a can of worms like any comment or post you make on FB, Flickr other forums or PRESS sites.

    I agree - Looks a fantastic house (I love period features like that!!)

    Not sure if you've done this yet, but our old friend Google gives some good info on this site, and it seems that it was built in a very interesting period. Think it's also got a big cellar - oh and a ghost:eek:
