So it’s my first time joining a group and I only really decided to start exploring more after finding some places while geocaching!

I wanted to find somewhere in Leicester so started looking online and found this group. I saw someone talking about this place so I did some research, battled with google maps, jumped on a bus and here we are!

Must admit it was an easy find but I definitely took the more painful route be warned lots of stingers! The main way up is a lot easier but risky as the property is on private land. Not really anyone around though! Such a beautiful place and I could have stayed there all day if it wasn’t so cold!

So anywayz this is bradgate house stables located not far from the A50 in Markfield. Bradgate House was demolished in 1926 but its beautiful stable block still stands today. It was built on a lavish scale and cost around £30,000 for the Seventh Earl of Stamford when he was made Master of Quorn Hunt in 1856. A Royal Commission on the Historical Monuments of England survey was done in 1992 and over the years several ideas have been put forward to rescue the building, but so far nothing has proved viable. None the less the build is still beautiful and worth the venture

Check out some of my Favourite shots!

There’s no pictures showing on this. You may need to press ‘insert all’ within the image viewer.

To make this a stellar report, you need to include a few more things.

• A month and year of the explore in the title including a rough location.
• A little history of the site in the body of the report.
• And of course, the pictures!

Also, this needs to be put in the correct section/category on the site rather than in the general photo thread unless you feel you don’t have enough pictures or detail to make it a report.

Have a read of this guide to help you posting a report for next time:

Thank you for your assistance! I feel a douche for not knowing what I’m doing but I have an idea and I’ve read the guide now! So hopefully it’s better!

As Ojay said, all sorted now. Thank you for taking on the advice and correcting it. You’ve got some lovely shots, and for a first report, not a bad start!

I remember us being charged by some killer cows here a few years back.
