These are some of the images from my recent visit to the abandoned and derelict Winstanley Hall that has been left to rot for over 30 years now. Had no problems getting in and even found some fellow urbexers exploring and tagged along with them. I got a warning from a tenant on messenger for trespassing but there’s nothing he could do so I left it. Here’s a brief history of the Hall:

The hall was built in the 1560s for the Winstanley family of Winstanley; the Winstanley family were lords of the manor since at least 1252 and may have been responsible for building the moat on the site.[2] The Winstanleys owned the hall until 1596, when the estate was sold to James Bankes, a London goldsmith and banker.[5] Winstanley Hall has three storeys and has a date stone with a date of 1584, but this is not in situ so may not provide an accurate date for the construction of the house.[1] Extra blocks were added in the 17th and 18th centuries. Further and extensive alterations were made in 1811-19 by Lewis Wyatt in a Jacobean style. He moved the entrance to the left flank of the hall and replacing the original entrance with a window.[1] The final additions to the hall were made in 1843 when an extra wing was added. To the south, on lands belonging to the hall, is a small stone building which was used to house bears that provided entertainment for the hall's guests

Got lucky cause the farmer was ill apparently so we dodged the bullet. But it is pretty surrounded and isolated from urban land and it’s protected by woodland so if you come through the Forest then you’ll only spot it about 50 metres away from reaching it. Good and warm weather overall made it better for photographs and pretty chilled with no worries (apart from shitting it cause I saw a guy in a camp jacket in the Hall) but it turned out to be another urbexer as mentioned before.

Hope you like the pictures I took - credit to Ben, Jason and Chris for a few photos that they took whilst we all explored :)

Good stuff, but try and keep it focused on photos of the building rather than you/your mates - there is a dedicated people shots thread for stuff like that.

Can you add the other parts as comments to this thread? It's better to keep it all together as we don't really need multiple threads of the same explore!

Some nice photos, but I think your title is lacking, town, county and date. Like above, never a good idea to post lots of photos of faces.

Thats cool, there is a guideline somewhere, Its basically . Name of place, Town or area , then county. Then mth & year. It just lets others know where it is, and when further reports go up it shows the decline of the place. Photos of faces are ok if long distance, or half lite, or a permission visit. And never post a photo of your entrance /exit, or mention it in a report, landlords come on here and know where to seal if you do. 8 photos is really a guideline minimum for a report, and you can only post I think its 20 or 30 in one post, then it will have to be a 2 parter.

Hope this helps you with futher posts. All the best with your explores. Doing well so far, look forward to seeing more

Thank you very much. I will take a look at the guidelines and search more into it. But thank you for the help
