Visited with Weeble and a non-member.

We perhaps picked the worst day lately to see this place. Horrible light, snow and generally pretty miserable. Still this is a pristine place to explore - perhaps almost too pristine. I like my dereliction with a bit of, well, dereliction!

Still, there are some beautiful features to this place and great views. I wish I could have done them justice. Perhaps I'll go back on a nice sunny day for that.

Formally a mansion house built in 1876 by Ernest Seth Smith for his brother, then acquired by Sir Charles Tennant, it was later bought by the Ministry of Supply where a postwar extension was added to the building and was used for that purpose until 1996. Some work has been done on the upper floors in the last few years perhaps as a temptation to a possible buyer. The ground floor remains untouched and is a grade two listed building.
