Visited with Will Knot, We got turfed off the site a few months back by the zombie airsoft organizers who now rent the hall and grounds, so with a couple of hours to spare one afternoon We were back on a day when the place was deserted..


Some history from Wiki..

Daresbury Hall is a former country house in the village of Daresbury, Cheshire, England. It was built in 1759 for George Heron.[1] The house is constructed in brown brick with stone dressings, and has a slate roof.[2] Its architectural style is Georgian.[1] The house is in three storeys and seven bays. It has a stone plinth and stone bands between the storeys. Framing the middle three bays are rusticated pilasters, and similar quoins at the corners. All the windows are sash windows. Along the top of the house is a plain parapet, with a pediment above the central three bays.[2] For some years from 1955 it was used by a charity, now known as Scope, as a residential home for handicapped people.[3] The house is designated by English Heritage as a Grade II* listed building.

1. The two upper floors of the hall are totally stripped and water damaged, the ground floor however is not too bad.

it is well boarded up but its still possible to get in on the first floor if you know where to look and don't mind a bit of climbing and crawling.avoid the top floor,lokks to dangerous head down to the ground and the darkness adds to the eerie feeling in the building
