Been slow in uploading this one, life happened and I had to put everything on hold for a while!

This country mansion was built in 1874 in a quiet spot overlooking a lake. In 1973 it was purchased by the singer Ian Gillan of the band Deep purple, then later it was turned into a luxury hotel, named The Springs after the springs that feed one of the ponds on the grounds. In 2014 the hotel closed its doors for good, the owners citing increasing commissions and discounts offered by internet booking companies, teamed with the upkeep of the building eating into profit. Five years later, the vast building sits vacant and slowly decaying.

The place sits adjacent to a live golf course which adds some level of security. This could be why there is minimal damage or graffiti anywhere, bar some missing fixtures and fittings on some of the lower floors. Things like toilets, sinks and door plaques. There are some areas with broken glass as per the norm, but other rooms were still perfectly clean, still with that 'hotel smell'.

Out of all the abandoned manor houses in that area of Oxfordshire this was the one that disappointed me the most, which is a real shame.
