I have found very little information on this building however i know it was apparently built in 1877 and was used until about 5 or 6 years ago where they were selling the property for over a million pounds. In 2009 their was a fire which was arson caused damage to the upper floor of the building and the roof and has remained derelict since. ( I found this all out after i visited the site)

I have past this place a few times but thought nothing of it because it looks bad on the outside however i decided to give it ago. As i found my way in i knew immediately that i had found a gem of a place with all the walls mosaic-ed and it generally looked posh. In the outbuildings is where they keep boxes of all the mosaic pieces which i believe is to restore the mosaics in case they get damaged.
