My last foray with exploring this year ended with beauty. After a stupid amount of driving over the previous days, I was shattered, driving from as far south as I've been before, driving to Wales to drop of Lowri an then heading ver to the Midlands to get some rest with Project Mayhem who kindly put me up for the night. I set off to Chaise Abbey after some a tip off from AndyK, I was off as soon as I woke to get it done before the tour bus arrived. After a well deserved McDonalds, I arrived at my parking location and set off on a long convoluted route I chose as the one that would keep me away from any game keepers and locals. Apart from acting like a gun dog and rising up a few pheasants, well 200 or so, I eventually reached the outsite the Abbey and it was a glorious site. Quickly finding a way in, there were many ways I saw from my initial walk around, I was in and decided nervous about being inside, there was a lot of rotten floors and joists; stairs had collapsed, floors collapsed, but work had been ongoing and looked safe enough to carry on. Quickly finding my way around, I find the room most come to see and the name of the location - the Chaise Longue Room The main hall Grand Staircase Some of the furniture and Fireplaces were outstanding. Couple of the grand rooms Always great to find see some vintage bicycles Dolls chair and chess / chequers table Heading upwards Really enjoye this nice relaxed explore, spent a couple hours inside, and had a long walk back to the motor. Thanks for looking!
