I spent a few days in Devon & Cornwall just after Xmas so searched on here for some sites to check out. Thanks to Raz's report HERE, I popped along to a 19th Century, gothic style old rectory which looked stunning. I missed the boat here because although 6 months previously it was full of furniture, artifacts, decorations and the like, work is now underway to renovate the place and it's been stripped bare. In fact, when I arrived, there was a builder's van parked up next to the house who were presumably working on the building, but thankfully no sign of any builders. They'd left the door open though, so cheers for that guys :D

This is what it looked like:

It was a cracking explore back in 2011, good to see the place is being saved
