Been done to death I know but ever since I saw this pop up Iv wanted to see it for myself & it didn't disappoint.
If you dont know the story its believed the farmer built this for his sheep & famously said "I got a bit carried away" while building it. I have to say its quite well built, the attention to detail in places is extraordinary.
I really didnt expect the intricate mouldings & quite so many stained glass panels!

Iv heard rumours the landowner here is not the most agreeable type so this called for a 4am start so I was in by half 6, this did give me some excellent light to work with :tennis:
Anyway on with the pics

I find it weird it's not being rented as an Air BB or something. It seems a waste just sitting there, even if it was just built as a sheep hut!

Great images and a great report.I have recently learned the location of this as i was doing a building job just up the road and the guy who owned the house i was working on told me the location and some of the history of the place.Apparently he said the guy that originally built it was a nice chap,and if he still owned it he would have let people look around.I believe he also said the new owners were not as welcoming.
Planning a visit in the next few weeks

Someone said if u approach the quarry owners who now own it they too will give u access but don’t know how true that is. The farmer (presumably the tennant) is a nasty bastard hence my early morn visit

Avoid the farmer and youll be OK. He really doesnt like people having a nose.
