    While driving home one day I only just noticed this building hiding behind some trees, so I turned back to have a look.It turns out it was the old
    Berkeley Vale Hotel.Google does not bring up much information but I did find this from the RAIG website. It seems that it was last used as a pub rather
    than as a hotel.



    In 2011 according to the Gloucestershire News -


    So far the only sign of development is a large open fronted wooden structure at the far end of the extensive garden.The inside is gradually rotting away aided by damp and the damage caused by several fires, one of which burnt up through to the next floor. Missing floorboards everywhere and holes right through.

    Note to the Mods' - I understand if you wish to exclude this image.
    This picture from its early years is on several websites and I borrowed it from one which stated that "it may be subject to copyright". So I'm guessing that coplright expired long ago and that the website in question were not claiming it as theirs.

    Long before the A38 was widened - almost to the front door.

    As it is now. The frontage and ground floor. Front and side entrances, function rooms and kitchens.

    Up to the first floor. Tread very carefully.

    At the back is an annex, outbuildings, and garage. The annex is almost lost among young trees, as is the whole of the main building.
