Winstanley Hall​
History (Brief)

Its was built in the 1560's and was owned originally by the Winstanley family, and in 1596 was sold to the Bankes family in its entirety, which owned the land right up until 2000, when it then fell into different, failed developers and such, it just rotted away (Dorbcrest homes.) Apparently the hall stopped being inhabited in the 1960's, which makes sense when you look at the original electronics downstairs, don't seem too modern.

Our trip

Unlike our first venture to the hall, this time we didn't have to hide from a weed smoking farmer, and easily spent a good few hours here without any issues, apart from when the a bit of roof almost took one of us out. As its been mentioned before Winstanley hall is dilapidated and is too far in dereliction to ever be saved. You can only access less than a quarter of the whole building due to sinking floors, missing stairs and lack of a death wish, which is really a shame, as it is still a beautiful place.

If you ever want to go here, as many people do, just be extra careful, not really in its hey-day anymore.
