Calcott hall is a small farm located in Llanymynech, Powys and was built in 1725. The owner Ellen Jones is said to have died in the 1970s leaving this property to stay empty ever since. Calcott Hall is a grade II listed building and has been dubbed 'red dress manor' due to a dress that was left in the property (since gone missing).

Our latest adventure seen us heading to the infamous red dress manor, which is a beautiful old building located down some sleepy country lanes. The architecture is certainly unique and had one of our cameras not have given up the ghost there would have been more shots!

The property has been vacant since the 1970’s and unlike most other explorations we have been on, the building has not been stripped, which made it feel more personal. The house still carries the signs of life, it is littered with personal belongings and letters addressed to the former residents, though it is evident no-one has been here for some time. Unfortunately a lot of the items which make it unique have been taken by people who clearly have no morals, this includes the iconic red dress.

We were unsure if the outbuildings belonged to the property as they were surrounded by cows and evidently still in use by the local farmers.

Floors within the building are deteriorating to some extent and whilst not as bad as some we have visited, its safe to say we took caution, particularly on the upper levels.

You need to name it correctly & also the location on here mate as per all the other reports on here, and expand on the history as not everyone knows about it.

As for some of the processing i"m sure someone will ? it ;)

There shouldn't be anything that gives away its location in the post, I assume by 'name correctly' you mean add the date? If so I have corrected this.

I'm not very clued up on the history, all I know is it has been vacant presumably since the 1970’s (dated letters). Feel free to shed some more light on this.

HDR shots have been replaced with the shots as they were taken, I wasn't aware this was a rule. Regardless thanks for your constructive reply :thumb

That"s the thing on here, we name the place unless it"s European and also name the location, and are not supposed to do overcooked processed pics, as it says

Have a look under Calcott Hall mate ;)

Good report, cheers for taking the time to change bits :thumb

It took me less than 5 minutes to locate this place on Google maps even when you hadn't named it, looks as if it's been on the radar for at lest 3 years.
