This place seems to have been done a fair bit recently, but is one definitely worth making the effort for.
History of the place
The Rayner family has been farming in the Colnbrook area since the reign of Elizabeth I. In 1945, the family purchased Berkyn Manor Farm & Manor House in Horton, together with 60 acres of land (the site of Berkyn Manor was also the home to the famous poet, Milton, and his parents from 1632 to 1638). In 1954, J Rayner & Sons Ltd was founded from the original farming partnership.
This place has been around since the 1600s and is a real time warp inside. The last resident Ernest Rayner (former County Councillor) died aged 96 in 1987.
Visited with bauhausgirl and darbians. Also bumped into two explorers inside who aren't on this forum I don't think. I was a little apprehensive about entry, due to stories of the bullish guardian, but he wasn't even encountered directly. BHG had brought an apple to feed him just in case! :D
Saw the farmer in a tractor on the way out feeding the bull, but he soon drove off again.

I know someone set this shot up, but still a nice moose head..
