Recently seen an article about this priory which i didn't even know existed so just had to find this place myself. The Priory has apparently been left for nearly 30 years and nothing seems to have been done with the place. Not much inside the building itself but as far as architecture goes its amazing. Staircase, Lift and The Outside of the building was beautiful, also its the first bathroom i have came across that i found photo worthy. Such a beautiful building, i honestly cant really express how much i loved this place.
Bit of history on the place.
Nun Appleton Priory was a priory near Appleton Roebuck, North Yorkshire, England. It was founded as a nunnery c. 1150, by Eustace de Merch and his wife. It was dissolved by 1539, when the nuns were receiving pensions.
Subsequently Nun Appleton was the West Riding of Yorkshire country estate of the Fairfax family.

Wow. That place is amazing. And yup, looks like the metal faeries have been in.
Given where it is, as in where it is situated in the estate it'd be very unlikely metal thieves could even drive up to it without being collared - the pipework was probably taken out during whatever works they were doing but then stopped.

Ah. Fair point. Guess in this game whenever you see lines of floorboards up you automatically assume the worst!

Its in the middle of a country estate with an occupied property right next to it, the chances of anyone being able to drive up and start ripping stuff out without being caught is pretty unlikely.
