Horncliffe (Jag) Mansion - Rossendale July 2013

Following on from a few recent reports, and as I was passing by anyway I thought I'd take another look and see whats changed.

For those of you that don't know the history..here it is taken from a sales brochure ;

Horncliffe Mansion was once one of the finest houses in the region constructed in 1869. The property was originally built
as a private dwelling for Mr Henry Hoyle Hardman, local mill owner and business man. In recent times the property has
been used as a wedding venue and restaurant. The grade II listed property has become derelict and requires a
comprehesive scheme of renovation, however, offers tremendous potential for a residential conversion or commercial
uses, subject to planning. The accommodation totals approximately 10,000 sq ft (930 sq m) over three floors plus cellars
and outbuildings. There is also a detached gatehouse adjacent to the entrance gates and extensive grounds.

They of course forgot to mention the dead Jags, but I'll let them off..on with the report

The main building is definately secure, even the 'secret' way in has been sorted, so I decided to take a look round the back

The ballroom has most certainly seen better days, you couldn't even hold a barn dance in here...evidence of metal thieves too

another internal of the ballroom from the bar area, and a rather lovely little caravan, one of many dotted around the site

Piles of magazines dating back to the early 70's, perhaps the mansion itself featured in one of these at one point

Anyway, here's what I came to look at...the Jags, and what a state, even worse condition than my last visit :(

Maybe someone should call the number on the sticker and get them to save this lot before they end up being crushed

this Mini got so depressed at the sight of all the dead Jags, it threw itself into a field

Shame the Mansions all locked up, but at least I got to look at the Jags for one last time...cheers for looking :thumb
