Now this one is really special.. After researching a lead, Andy de Kay and I were getting pretty excited about what we could potentially see.

Pretty relaxed explore, however we were threatened to have our cameras smashed up if we didn't delete all our photos.. "Format that camera or i'll format it with a rock!" Well.. good ol' card switcheroo..

@AndyK I've nicked your history mate. All credit to you :D
Stanford Hall is a large 18th century, grade II listed country house in the UK. Since being used as a private residence the house has had a couple of different uses which have unfortunately removed a lot of the buildings splendour. A number of failed redevelopment projects were started, and recently a planning application has been approved to develop the building into a Defence and National Rehabilitation Centre.

An extension added an impressive Art Deco theatre in the 1930s which still remains in perfect condition. Murals decorate the walls and the ceiling features painted clouds. A Wurlitzer organ is built into the orchestra pit.
Anyway.. SHOTS:

We look further.. Through a door and it's pitch black. Andy finds a light switch and...

Sooooo jealous! I walked for miles to find this place. Only to discover it was being renovated and lots of ppl on site, so had a wander round the grounds just admiring the view and was confronted by a very rude man and was asked to leave. More beautiful than I imagined!

Haha that'll be the rude man we met too, "either you format your camera or I'll format it with a rock". Lucky he wasn't aware we'd been inside! ;)

Managed a quick peek on the ground floor, looked like the cellar, saw some GIANT light bulbs then was disturbed by work force who couldn't care less that we were there! Enjoyed a close look at the old sea lion enclosure and the mosaic tiling round a fountain outside the house was amazing.
