    This location has been covered plenty of times but its one i had in the bag hence why ive reported and also to show members the latest condition it is actually in!! (bomb site) i took plenty more photos but i dont think its appropriate to bore you to death!

    some history: (credit to will knots who could supply the info)

    The privately owned Moorcock Inn Hotel and Restaurant, has closed and reopened a number of times under different management over the past 40 years. It finally shut its doors for the last time near the end of 2010.
    In 1975 it was put into liquidation after losses of £97,500 were revealed. Later that year, the building was gutted by fire, but was then fully restored and re-opened in 1977. Plans were submitted to turn the site into a development of luxury flats, but after a number of years of wrangling, the plans were thrown out and the hotel became known for fruit machines and discos.
    In 1984 it re-opened as a quality venue offering fine cuisine and functions. In 1995, permission was granted for 14 new bedrooms and a conference centre.

    Recent Plans have been submitted which would see it demolished to make way for a residential home with landscaped gardens and a driveway.
