    I originally found this while I was exploring on Google Earth, someone had taken a picture in 2013, then I found out about the wireworks site close by so thought I'd take a look.

    The house was originally built by the Hurt family in 1846 or 1848? for the daughters of Francis Hurt although they never got to live there. The Johnson family bought it and enlarged the property(this may have been in 1894 as there is a date stone) It changed purpose a number of times, it was also a retreat for the local diocese and finally became flats during the 1970's, and was unused from the 80's

    Only had a quick look about as was already out of time. It is pretty much a ruin. From the outside it looks in good condition, but most of the internal walls and floors have collapsed. There are some features that remain and the whole house is easily accessible, but dangerous!

    An attempt at some humour!

    Inside it reminds me of Overstone Manor in Northampton. A beautiful old building that has just been left to decay!
