A super great house this one. Lots of rooms, lots of staircases, a surprise around every corner. Huge cellar and lots of bats.

I tried to find some extra history on this one but couldn’t, a post from one year ago says it was owned by a Lord and has been unoccupied since 2006 when house went into probate.

Main driveway is maintained, from first looks you would not think there was anything abandoned here, I guess that’s the idea.

Parts of the building are leaking through the roof so walls in parts are crumbling away.

And lots of Bats

Note to self - before climbing in through the window, try the front door and see if its open.

There where 3 large outbuildings, all empty for most part and overgrown.

I took lots and lots of photos, hard to pick which ones to put up here to show you. Hopefully gives you a good idea.

Going down into the cellar. The cellar was huge, lots of rooms. Empty apart from old boilers, pumps and glass bottles.
It was freezing down here, also strong smell of fuel, I think from lots of old fuel soaked rags. And Bats

DO NOT GO HERE!

I went here earlier and was seen off by the owner. He was very upset due to previous "explorers" recking the place and forcing entry. This is his former home and it has very high sentimental value for him and his family, and he does not wish to have anymore visitors. He's in the process of setting up security, and has plans to renovate in the future. So I urge you not to go please.

I never force entry into any place I go into and never touch/break anything, take nothing but pictures leave nothing but footprints

Well, ACTUALLY we DID lock all the doors, windows and other entrances and exits to OUR house but your members - the thuggish criminal element amongst them - smashed them down and wrecked them on multiple occasions! The criminal element within your organisation / group are trespassers, thieves, wreckers of lovely old property, vandals and in short the opposite of what you all claim to be! Yes - the house is in a terrible state of repair but there are good reasons as to why this came to pass and it does not give your members an excuse or a right to turn up there uninvited on private property, break in WHICH YOUR MEMBERS DID, HAVE DONE AND CONTINUE TO DO and wreck the place. We were in rented accommodation the year before last and stored all of our personal possessions at the house .....they were completely trashed and it took us weeks to go through everything and rescue what we could....most of what was left ended up in the local dump because it was beyond repair. My father's ashes have been stolen. Rooms have been trashed and the house defiled. You might have some reasonable, innocent members but some of you are just criminals and you should work at getting these people evicted from your organisation / group / site. Please will ALL of you STOP visiting this property - you have caused our family a great deal of stress, pain and misery and you clearly care nothing for the House which you claim to admire so much!!!!!
