The Visit
A very early morning start with @redhunter @Funlester and a non member. Bumped into a farmer who asked what we were doing but some quick thinking that we were looking for some high ground to photograph the morning mist over the fields worked a treat and he left wishing us good luck!

This is a great explore and some fantastic features inside, real shame we couldn't access the basement but a great explore otherwise :)

Does anybody know if the name "House of Tears" is just an "urbex codename" or was this something coined by the locals or something like that?

The History
This is a dominating Neoclassical Grade II listed mansion situated in Shropshire. It was originally constructed in 1735 and stands in a magnificent parkland of nearly 1500 acres of land. The mansion is famed for it's four giant iconic columns and was once owned by royalty. It's nickname 'House of Tears' comes from the fact that three of it's owners died from tragic circumstances, two fatal car crashes and a suicide. The basement of the mansion was once used as a telecommunications headquarters during World War II for the spy network in Europe, much of the original equipment is still down there. The property was sold to developers in 2000 but they have neglected to carry out much work since, they recently put it back on the market and are currently undergoing some restoration work inside.

...does anyone know if those books/that bookshelf is real (5th picture down)? I saw something similar on the Underscar Manor post, of a secret door, and it got my mind racing! :p

Yeah it just opens back into the main hallway. Quite disappointing. I was expecting some kind of bat cave behind it :)
