Visited Minley Manor yesterday after seeing another report on it. Of course i chose the best day to go (on a snow day) but to be fair because of this, there was no one around especially it being next to a public footpath. My history tends to be pretty rubbish and i never go into much detail, it's just not really my area of forte to be honest!

History
As i've read elsewhere it was built in the 1900's, There are many stables with a house attached to the front right side, 1 large detached house and 2 small semi-detached houses at the back. All very stripped and collapsed and totally unsafe to go upstairs at all!

The explore
After walking around the whole perimeter of the building once in what seemed like 2 foot snow (but probably wasn't!) We lapped it again only to find we actually missed a small entry point in the fence that had previously been covered over and opened again. I slipped a few times as expected on icey plastic, was not amused. Scoped the semi-detached buildings first but could only look from the door frame as the whole floor/stairs had collapsed in both houses into the basement. Still very interesting.

Then moved onto looking at the stables where we shit ourselves as we kept hearing a loud banging that sounded like shot guns. Assuming it might be some kind of secca or homeless person, i decided after 10 minutes to brave it and follow the sound. Worked out it was just a bit of a plastic pannel slamming against the roof in the wind.. again, was not amused. We were there for around an hour, we'd explored everything it had to offer and also not wearing the appropriate footwear, my feet were soaked... we decided to end the sesh. All in all was very interesting and i imagine back in the day were very beautiful buildings

It’s behind the door that says please keep this area tidy.

When I went last year it was freshly bricked up

Wow! I learnt to ride a horse there about 25-27 years ago! It was £5 for an hour lesson in the paddock, and £7 if you went on a 'hack' through the surrounding woodlands. 7th Picture down was where they would house the 10-12 horses and ponies for hire, with the 'office' where you paid being through the door to the right of the entrance. Fascinating! Thanks for sharing.

Don't think so. The actual Manor House is now in private hands. There used to be a bridge linking Gibraltar barracks to the Manor House, this went years ago.

Apparently the surrounding land is still used for MOD training as they keep objecting to the Manor being converted.
The MOD are still the registered owners on the land registry for Minley Manor Farm. I made contact with them in summer 2020 to enquire if they would be willing to sell it but my approach was rebuffed. I was told they are in the process of redeveloping it themselves, though I am yet to see any evidence of that in the 3 years I've been regularly walking around the area, besides the odd mowing of overgrown grass and actually the main barn seems to have suffered more this winter with further roof collapses.

Still, will be very interesting to see what they do with the place as I'm sure it will be an amazing once fully restored.

I recon it will be flattened (or left till it falls in on itself if its listed) its very architectural I thought but is a complete wreck now
