History
I was disappointed not to be able to find more history for this location. Dating back to the 1880’s, this building was originally known as Arden House and was one of a small collection of large detached houses, including Lindow Grove and Merchistown (The Merlin and Yesterday’s Nightclub respectively). The building was purchased by a brewery and operated as The County Hotel until its closure in 2009. Planning permission for 14 apartments was approved by the council in 2013; development started on the site but never continued. Planning permission has since been secured for a new luxury housing development on the site by 2021.

The Explore
After a very wet few days, my compadres and I decided to skip the culvert we’d been hoping to explore in favour of something slightly drier (spoiler alert - buildings with missing roof tiles aren’t all that dry). The odd layout of the hotel rooms owes to the fact the building was originally a residential villa, and made for an interesting tour. Bit miffed the Wacky Warehouse play equipment was gone but you win some, you lose some. This was my first time exploring a building like this and despite the state of the place I was so excited! I’ve had my sights on this place for almost as long as it’s been closed down and I finally got in - and from the sounds of things it may not be around much longer so I’m glad we got in when we could. Weirdly enough, this place still seems bookable on a few travel websites, although the reviews seem to be less than stellar...
