    Even though I'd read rumours on it being heavily guarded by the Gurkha Security Service, me and a mate still decided to head over there and check it out. I had to visit twice to navigate my way around; the first we explored a few ruins around the perimeter; a large stables, residential house, destroyed chapel etc. Because of all the overgrown woodlands it was quite difficult to tell how far away from the main manor we were. When I returned home I looked it up and turns out we were just a stone's throw away from the 103-room building!

    So with a fair bit of planning and probably over an hour of carefully approaching the manor to not get court, we ended up routing through a couple of fields which took us around the back.. a good choice as when inspecting from a distance we noticed a large caravan and couple of cars at the front of the premises.

    We got plenty of shots around the back and sides of the building, there's some cool metal framing which looks like was once a large conservatory within the gardens. We search around for an entrance to the building but it has been well and truly boarded up. If wanted you could easily pull the wooden panels away and find an entrance but with the security not far away and the possibility of getting into a fair bit of trouble we decided not to, I could only imagine how cool the inside of this place must be though.. it's HUGE! anyway, here's a few pics taken in and around the surroundings..

    P.S. check out the image of the stable building where I've shot from low down in the grass.. look at the middle window in the centre of the image. does anybody else see those legs dangling!? only noticed this as I was reviewing images on my camera, at the time I was stood directly underneath in the arch.. panic!

    Nice report wonder who moved the mannequin up to the round window. Did you manage any internals of the stable block? Some nice residential areas up there too.

    I found some old pics of the place when it was being used.. the legs where in the window then too so I'm guessing it's part of the design? A bit odd if you ask me haha. The stables are almost ruins from where both ceiling and floor of the second level have completely collapsed

    No mate it's the legs of a mannequin dummy that have been placed up there.
