Hi everyone! So after attempting this place before with my boyfriend and failing to get in we went back a couple of days later with a group of friends after seeing loads of people going here and successfully getting inside. Sadly when we went we literally missed seeing the chandelier on the spiral staircase. This place is getting done by a lot of explorers at the moment as there is no security and the access is very easy. The exterior it self somewhat looks abandoned but the inside really doesn’t! Some bits have got a little bit of wallpaper peeling and a little bit of mould here and there but other than that the place is literally pristine! A nice lovely explore where I didn’t get a single bit of dust or dirt on me! My favourite part of the whole mansion is where the spiral staircase is! The staircase itself is bloody gorgeous! Next to the door under the spiral staircase is a lovely floral mini built-in sofa! I sat there for some time - it was so comfy I didn’t want to move! I really liked this explore, A really lovely chilled out place! It’s definitely a new experience for me - having a place that clean to explore! This place is starting to get little signs of vandalism and the chandelier has been stolen. It really was a lovely beautiful explore!

History -

Bryan Forbes was an English film director, screenwriter, film producer, actor and novelist, described as a "Renaissance man" and "one of the most important figures in the British film industry".

My boyfriend did some digging on the history on the actual house.
Bryan and his wife called Nanette, bought this mansion in 1955 for £7000.
“I saw our house when I was only 19 and it was derelict. We had no money but borrowed £7,000 to buy it, with 10 acres of land. It took every penny we made for many years but it became a very happy home.” - Nanette Newman. Then they did it up and lived in it till. Bryan died in 2013. Nanette carried on living there till 2016. Nanette couldn't keep up the house after Bryan died because it cost too much in maintainance so she moved out in 2016. Her kids offered to pay for the house but she said no. The house is now worth £2.7 million! The house has been on for sale but sadly didn’t sell so a development company bought it and propose a new building. They bought the land and will knock down this mansion and rebuild a new property.

Those are some great photos, really nice work! Is that a fisheye or just a really wide angle lens? Such a shame the chandelier was nicked, that was a really nice feature.
