I know The Springs has been tour bussed and done to death, but the majority of stuff I have seen has been a vandalised, spray painted wreck. So I thought, why not submit some photos of when this site was in mint condition? This place was simply STUNNING in its heyday. Half timbered, oak panelled and just gorgeous architecturally. The building is a mid 19th century Tudor Revival house with later additions and extensions to create staff accommodation and extra hotel rooms. It closed as a hotel in 2015 due to apparent “serious structural issues”.

The Explore:

I found out about this place in July 2018 and went to it within a week. It was about an hour’s train ride from my place and I was not disappointed. At the time of my visit there was no security at all (surprisngly!!) so I could literally just walk into the main building through the front door. I spent a good hour and a half here, just photographing and taking in the building’s splendour. However, since the name got out, people have gone there and utterly trashed the place. It is now scheduled for demolition.

Here are some photos. I mainly photographed the reception areas as those were the most photogenic and architecturally interesting - I have a keen interest in medieval and Victorian architecture. Taken with a Nikon Coolpix b500 bridge camera so excuse the ropey quality (had to use flash a lot because the camera couldn't handle low light well at all). I didn't have my trusty Nikon D80 at that point.
