The Visit
Visited with @Choo Choo m8ty and a non-member.
We popped into this one after visiting a few other local spots, we didn't really know what to expect from this one as the only other report on here from @Abandoned hd only has a few external shots. The building isn't particularly anything special but it was a nice way to kill 30 minutes, the inside of the main building is very 1960s and doesn't appear to have had any major work done to it since then. It has been empty for a good number of years now and the neglect is really starting to show, there is also a large barn to the rear of the property that was constructed in the 1950s which is currently filled with junk.


The History
White Gables is the former coach house and stable block of Plas Newton, a demolished country house. The main building was constructed in the mid 19th century with several additions being made to the structure during its lifetime, Plas Newton dates from the mid-19th century and in its early 20th century heyday was occupied by wealthy Liverpool solicitor Alfred Tyrer. The mansion sat within extensive landscaped gardens and woodland and was approached via a serpentine carriage drive. Tyrer died in 1946 and in later years the estate entered a decline. Housing was built on the grounds in the 1980s and the mansion was demolished in 2005 and replaced with a block of flats. White Gables is now the only surviving remnant of the estate having been converted for residential use in the 1960s. A planning application has recently been submitted to Cheshire West & Chester Council which proposes to demolish all the buildings on the site and construct 13 new homes on the remaining 0.6 hectare site.

Always worth a look if near an area. The stone heads I always find interesting. I know the history of gargoyles and their true purpose, but cant find any info on normal looking faces, what their purpose was, or whether its the same and they are just diverting rainwater, without the evil connations?
