    Hi all.

    Local newspaper ran a story a few weeks back about 'the grandest manor house in Camborne' that is back up for sale after lying empty for a few years. Thought it was in need for an explore.

    I can't find a great deal of information about the property, but what I do know is that 'Rosewarne House' was built back in 1815 by a wealthy mine owner, William Harris. It was later purchased by the Holman family and renamed to 'Gladys Holman House' where it was used as a care home. At some point again it was sold to Scope who in turn sold it to a property developer.
    Since then it's been boarded up and untouched. Currently up for sale with planning permission granted for 10 flats.

    I managed to find a way inside so set about my exploring. I've not had a great deal of experience with low-light photography so some of my shots didn't come out and I apologise if some here aren't up to standard! Most of the place is pitch black inside as all windows are boarded.

    Some really beautiful period features still in this property and it really is a shame to see it all wasted. The staircase and the oval skylight above it is particularly awesome.


    Anyway, just thought I'd leave you all with what I did today! Got a couple more places lined up soon, just all about finding ways in.

    Cheers,
    Harold Bishop's Love Child.
