Visited with clebby and ImmortalOwl.

The history has been covered in immense detail in clebby’s excellent report so here’s the link if you want a read: http://www.28dayslater.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=44087

Access here was near enough impossible, but once inside it was definitely worth the effort. Although fairly trashed – almost every pane of glass has been smashed – the place is still very impressive; it has some handsome reception rooms, an elegant wood-panelled foyer and original hardwood staircases. It has emerged that every single window is to be boarded with steel shutters so hopefully this will stop this fine building deteriorating further, and hopefully it can be restored to its former glory.

Anyway enough said, on with the photos. This is the decadent wood-panelled foyer…

On either side was a handsome staircase…

And behind these, there were much smaller utility staircases…

These reception rooms would have been impressive in their day…

Upstairs was where the actual accommodation was situated. Unfortunately, it has been completely stripped out and was fairly dull.

Last stop, the boiler house, impressive in itself.

This site is definitely worth a visit, although you had better go soon because of the possible lockdown.

Cheers :)
