Having seen so many reports of late on this place and hearing it was secure i decided i must see what this place had to offer. We were doing a bit of a foray in to Lancs so popped in on our way past. Our team of 3, Movens,my son and myself spent a good time puzzling things out but i dont like to be beaten especially when I can see open windows. The place inside is trashed - its a real shame - if i had known what the inside was like i may not have tried so hard but it did have merit and as no one has posted things of late here is a look at the inside. Heartbreaking to see such beautiful buildings falling in to this dilapidated state.Its up for grabs on right move for £250,000. Youre gunna need a bulldozer and about another half million quid of acros to do anything here - the second floor is now in the rooms to the side of recpetion.

A bit of history then on with the pics - enjoy people.


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.

Welcome to Horncliffe Mansion Hotel - theres lots of other sand blasted glass ready for the regeneration.

The arcitecture of this building is very grand - a shame its so exposed to the main road or I would have got a better one than this.

The function room is really suffering - bet even the divorced couples who got wed here are in better shape - its been totally destroyed by water ingress.

This is probably one of the best jags in the world - it has its own swimming pool - least you know your renovation project is watertight!

Another of my sons shots - you dont need the lift to get to the second floor nowadays - great care needed here as ther is unstable collapse and some large drop offs.
