Not much info on this site, I was told about it by friends who are helping set up a Zombie Paintball centre! Thanks G and J! So it was a permission visit but I don’t think they expected me to venture so far into the place!
It is pretty badly damaged and dangerous with lots of tarpaulins to stop leaks rotting the floors – too late sadly!
The main building was put up in 1759 in the Georgian style, in 1960 it became a residential place for handicapped people and many extensions were added.
Now it is empty and the owners made a pastime of shooting fridges with shotguns by the nearby Lewis Carroll Unit (Which I shall post as a separate explore)
Internally it was like a maze and one staircase was blocked off leaving me to retrace my dangerous route disgruntled!

Office! But for the hole in the ceiling – it was intact!

Plaque! You can’t use these terms anymore!

Relax and tell me about your mother!

Big fridge!

Abandoned rally car! There was a go-cart in the adjacent room!


View of the rear – identical to the front which I forgot to photograph.

Last orders!

Extension roof, other way.



Rain rain, go away!

Intact 2nd floor room.

The cellars!

Clockface and tower.

Peeling corridor – one of many!

Nice one, like how the office is untouched apart from the hole in the ceiling.
