My first post… so go easy on me!

This report is a blast from the (recent) past as I’ve only just figured out how to post:banghead.

I was lucky to visit ‘red dress manor’ before it was too trashed and half of the contents had gone missing. Two years on and it seems a lot of its former beauty has been destroyed which is such a shame.

History: The four bedroomed Hall, which is part of a dairy farm, was built in 1725. It is well documented that the previous dweller identified as Ellen Jones by census records and personal letters, died in the 1970s and the house has been empty since. However there were bills from 1998 on the kitchen table, food expiry dates from 2002 in the Hall’s pantry, and vehicles parked on the land were taxed up until 2007.

The visit: After waking up at 3am, having two successful shoots down South, it turned out to be a lovely sunny afternoon so we decided to travel to Wales to explore Calcott Hall. As soon as we got in, we ran into some fellow urbexers who were just finishing up which meant we had the house to ourselves, muhahaha! As the sun was setting, we explored the farm house ... a lovely end to a jam-packed day!
