We were in two inds whether to visit this place, we'd seen pictures but since then the place has gone up for sale, so we assumed most of the interesting stuff would have been taken out. Most of it has but there's still a few good features. The building itself is from the 19th century is a good wander and then there's the car left in the garage.

It's also known as the Doctor's House because of the grim history behind the bloke who lived there...

Neil Silvester, a psychiatrist believed to have lived in the abandoned manor house at Hampole, found notoriety after releasing Carol Barratt from hospital.

The 24-year-old had been subjected to a 28-day detention order after threatening a young girl with a knife.

However, half-way through the order, Barratt's mother asked Dr Silvester to authorise her release from Doncaster Royal Infirmary. Two days later, Barratt went to a Doncaster shopping centre and killed 11-year-old Emma Brodie in a random knife attack. The killer admitted manslaughter and was ordered to be detained in a mental health unit indefinitely. The victim's family sued the local health authority, and settled out of court for an undisclosed compensation payout. Dr Silvester was order to undergo additional training, but kept his job at the hospital.
