    History - Information on this building is sparse and hard to come by. The building was built in roughly the 1980s and began as a stone farm building, in 1986 planning permission allowed for the barn to be converted into a restaurant. It was later used as a large family public house with ancillary residential accommodation to the first floor, then in 1991, it was allowed further permission for an extension to the public house and restaurant as well as advertisement consent for play area signs and elevational signs. The building also received a single story flat roof extension and a glazed octagonal conservatory. It later found use as a pub/restaurant, however this closed down in 2006 and has not been used since. The building was then part sold (Someone else still owns part of the pub) and in 2009 permission was granted for an extension to the bar/lounge area to provide a play area. Finally in 2012 a change of use from public house to 2 dwellings, partial demolition and extension together with associated outbuildings was granted but have not gone ahead. Several attempts to turn this pub into housing have been granted but none of them have gone ahead with the proposed plans.


    The explore - This was a happy accident, as Screw Loose and I were attempting to scout a different building and happened to drive along a long road which appeared to have nothing explorable around (or just anything for that matter), until Screw Loose saw a building in the distance, upon pulling up to the building we decided to go on a search for access. Once inside we searched the bottom floor using the torches on our phones and found that it was a large building with lots of photo opportunities to offer. As we did not have any photography equipment or torches we quickly ran back to the car and drove back home to get some equipment, and then we were off again! Upon getting back to the building again, this time with our equipment, we began with our documentation/photos. The bottom floor of the building was easy to navigate and document, however, looking at the ceiling we found that the second floor would not be so forgiving! We hesitantly explored the second floor, checking each step on the stairs to ensure they didn't fall through, and unfortunately avoided one half of the upper floor altogether as the hall wall was nothing but a large hole and uncertainty. Maybe at some point in the future, we may attempt to navigate past that hole in the floor. A large portion of the building is also gone, the rear of the building and the conservatory are none existent and the only thing around to say that they were there at some point is the tiled floor and markings on the walls.


    I hope you enjoy reading this report as much as we enjoyed exploring the building.
