My Visit

While on the way to another explore, this place caught the corner of my eye, it didn't look doable and under 24hr CCTV :D, I risked it, a bit of investigative work and I was in, nothing amazing, but a worthwhile explore, I expect back in the day this country house was very nice, looking a bit sad for itself now, anyway hope you enjoy, a nice little bonus explore enjoyed it

Apologies about some of the photographs, I had no decent torch and it was pitch black in quite a few places

Was a bit stripped out, but none the less a nice little bonus explore, and as most folks will know in Hertfordshire, it really is slim pickings :)

Now that I know where this is, and close enough to me, I now need to find the way in.
