The Salston Manor Hotel until 2008 was a family run historic 27 en-suite room hotel, with heated swimming pool, squash courts, sauna and solarium .
It was sold on to a developer who had the idea to convert it into a residential home. Evidence of early work is still visible in a couple of rooms in the building, but planning proposals have since fallen through and has been left untouched for a few years now.
Overall the building has mostly been stripped bare, and even the roof replaced with cheap tarp. The two highlights of this place I think was the staircase, which was damn near impossible to get a good shot (possibly because I'm a crap photographer!), and the cellar which had a rather nice painting on the wall.
Must be said that there are a couple of dangerous drops down there!
On with the pics!

Lovely stuff matey. I went there before Xmas and it hasn't changed much. They've got a site office (portacabin!) so give the impression they're doing work but inside it doesn't look that way. It was your report that made me investigate so cheers for that

Good to hear that it inspired a trip. The Portacabin was also there when we went, but yea I think that was from way back when they were converting it. But seems they have long since gave up.
