We did a bit of live infiltration at a derelict country house in Devon and almost got caught by the loose dogs that are on site 24/7.

The original post gave out the name of the location and we received a lot of 'hate mail' about it so we removed the post completely.

After much debate we decided to remove the name and put it back up. so here it is..

We found this stunning country house / scrap yard online and headed over to Devon to check it out.

Even though it seemed nobody has explored the inside of this house and comments of people being caught there, we still thought we would give it a go, glad we did because getting in was actually fairly easy.

Whilst we were exploring the amazing tunnels under the building we heard 2 (large) dogs barking very near by. We left the building and site hastily.

It was built in 1838 by James T. Knowles. It was never completed, as was also the case for his other nearby palatial Devon residence Silverton Park, demolished in 1901. Originally designed as an Italianate palace, there were no funds to complete it, so it was constructed as two smaller, linked buildings.

The house was variously used as a school, a religious institution for wayfarers, and as a training centre for conscientious objectors for relief work during World War II and briefly as a Youth Hostel (1945).

In 2011 the house and 12 acres were for sale for £1m (later reduced to £750,000), but did not sell, and was subsequently withdrawn.

Enjoy!
