Built in the 18th century, Doughty House is a large house on Richmond Hill in Surrey, England. The house has amazing views over the Thames and central London can be seen in the distance. The house is named after Elizabeth Doughty, who lived there from about 1786.

 

A 125-foot-long gallery was added in 1885 for the very important family art collection. It housed a considerable collection of paintings including works by Titian and El Greco.

 

Both the house and gallery are Grade II listed, and planning permission for rennovation with some alterations has been granted. The house was put on the market in 2012 with a guide price of £15 million.

      Visited with @albino jay and @GK-WAX and thanks again to jay for doing the driving and I also stole your history mate because I couldn’t find any hope you don’t mind. We was passing by the mill on our way home so popped in for a look. And glad we did I like these old mills. And the demo team were already on site so don’t know how long it has left to stand. So here’s the history and pics..
       
      Steam-powered worsted-spinning mill built around 1850 on Black Brook.
       
      Owners and tenants of the mills have included
      James Nutton & Company [1863]
      John Horsfall & Sons Limited [1896]
      F. K. Adcock & Company [1936]
      Part of the Mills are still standing though no longer used.
      The mill had a 170 ft tall chimney which was struck by lightning in 1967. The chimney was reduced in height – to avoid further strikes – and was finally demolished in March/April 1992
       
      The majority of the Mills were demolished in 2017.

      this house always interested me..the yard was filled with junk..old cars..and other junk..it gave the appearence of being abandoned but someone clearly lived there

      the area became prime real estate..mcmansions went up and taxes went up..i knew this houses wouldent last....i went by and saw it was finally empty
      the 1st floor was a neat gloomy  house



      rooms that feel like a horror movie

      all the lights hung poorly..surpised there wasent a fir from them..



       

      see more of that in a bit

      upstairs'


      the upstairs was nthing but an attic...no bedrooms or bathroom..this was a single floor home..



      basement

      a wood burning heater...thats an old way to heat a house



      the last thing still hanging that shows the personality of the owner


      odd old stained glass

      not sure what that is...

      ..the dead and prarie home companion
       
      There are a few male voices caught inside one seems like another lanuage

      This place has been on the radar for a while now but never got the chance to properly take a look. The dome itself can be seen for quite a few miles across the surrounding areas. Not a great deal of information available other than it looks like some sort of water treatment site/reservoir possibly used by the MOD, given the land its situated on. It doesn't appear to be fully derelict either as you can still here the sound of running water and the grass seems to be trimmed.
       
      The explore went as planned, few dog walkers here and there, other than that spent a little while looking around.

      Little house somewhere in Belgium. Seems there lived an 103 year old lady and after a fire on the upper floor she left the house. Her son still comes there every week to feed the cat.
