Been a member a while but didn't really have any decent equipment to put up many reports. here is the first!

was difficult to find much history and most of this is probably recycled elsewhere in reports on here, but for the sake of the post here you go.

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 businessman. 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 comprehensive scheme of renovation.

On a warm day after a day at work, me and non-member decided it was time to try out my first DSLR camera at a location that has been done many times but was still on the todo list. Not too many photos of the visit, as I'm still learning how to use the camera! but here is a selection of the better photos I had from the trip.

The first part was the jaguar graveyard.

after a walk around in the mud of the graveyard, we went to go look around for a way inside and the state of decay within the property has gone downhill over the past few years, and many parts are now missing, broken and destroyed. not long left for this place with floors collapsing and slowly rotting with moisture from the broken skylight over the main staircase.

the architecture and level of detail in the fabric of this building makes me wonder why it was left to go into such a state of decay.

was a lovely day to make the most of a semi- outdoor explore given the graveyard but all in all was a nice little easy explore and a new place for myself that i was yet to see!

Cheers mate. I've been sat in the shadows for too long on here so I had to start doing some reporting!

Despite the ever increasing decay you've managed to capture some of the best details I've seen of this place in a long while.
A wide angle lens is usually the weapon of choice for most. Nice to see a longer lens comes in handy sometimes.

All of these were taken with a 18-50mm canon on a aps-c sensor. Most interiors at 18mm. But yeah I felt it was a must have given the interiors were all small areas to take a low focal length lens! Shame that it suffers in the low light rooms even on 30 sec shutter speeds given it can't get lower than f3.5. Was looking for a 20mm f/2 or 1.8 going cheap! Least next time I'll be prepared as bought a decent standalone light for the next interior i visit. Thanks for the comments!

I'd heard this has been sold and was now inaccessible. I was there last July and the level of decay since then is astounding

I went the week before this was posted, it is decayed a ton since photos I've seen a few months before

APS-C Crops the image on full frame lenses, which may be why the look like close ups. I'm having this problem with my 80d, I've got a 16-35mm on order and I've read that 16mm is effectively 24mm on an APS-C sensor.

I was here a week or two ago - I got no decent shots as it was miserable rain and very overcast

He's most likely using the kit lens that came with the camera so it'll be designed for a crop sensor.

Yes, the one I use for interiors is the kit lens for it. And you are right, you apply a 1.6x multiplier to the focal length with it being aps-c rather than full frame
