    Not much i can tell you in the way of history on this one, other than it was built in 1900 and due to its proximity to the dunham estate is probably to do with the earl of stamford and is almost certainly owned by a certain historical preservation company with the initials NT.

    Some time in its history it was taken over by the consulate of the islamic republic of iran and some time in the 80s was the subject of a major police investigation according to several members of my family.

    It has been in a state of disrepair for several years now and unoccupied for a couple of months and due to its close proximity to me was a temptation too great to resist.

    Visited solo and again with the new mendoza.

    Walking up the long drive through the formerly manicured gardens.

    A later addition i assume, an islamic looking sundial

    Although not a patch on this fantastic example, a full 8-9 feet high

    In fact the charming woodcarving continues throughout

    There was some quite dubious looking literature around, like this:
