Hello everyone :)

Today's exploration report is brought to you from an abandoned Manor Farm that I've been meaning to visit for some time. A couple of months ago, I was searching around on Google maps for a completely different site when suddenly the farm came into view. Unfortunately I get distracted all too easily but finally I have gotten round to visiting the place. I wasn't disappointed :)

History

The farm was built as part of a large manor, located further to the north, and was built by Henry Clutton in the 1860's. Very little information about the history of the farm exists online, but I think I can safely assume that it is currently being sold along with the manor itself. During the 1980's it was leased out to a riding school, but the buildings have been falling into serious disrepair ever since.

The Explore

If you ignore the reports of a gunman living at Sutton Hospital, then this is probably the most dangerous explore I have done to date, mainly because of the current state of the buildings. The place is quite literally falling down, and this is being accelerated by vandalism. Several parts have clearly been smashed up deliberately and there is evidence of fires being started in some of the rooms.
The closest railway station is nearly 3 miles away from the site - a distance I significantly reduced by cutting across country, but be warned. This route is not for the feint of heart, especially at 1 am in the morning. The explore began properly at around 2:45 am. I started out by recording video and then took the following photo's as the sun was coming up. You will notice more externals here than I usually post but this is only because of the nature of the place. Throughout the explore there was consistent (and fairly disturbing) banging coming from within the farm grounds. If you like this kind of scary thing, there's more in the video below. I still do not know what the source of the noise was.

As I left the grounds, I found out that I was being watched the whole time...

That is a beauty of a horse yard reminds me of the 18th century racing yards in Newmarket. Cracking find. What was watching you? Will watch your vid now but may of been a crow scarer noise banging ?

I tried several times to work out exactly what the sound was, including trying to triangulate it using the original raw video footage, unfortunately the source still remains unclear. The most likely explanation though is that it was an upstairs window or door banging in one of the out houses.

As for what was watching me in the last photo, you'll have to zoom in a bit to see :)
