      HOOK END MANOR 
       
      History: Hook End Manor was once owned by Pink Floyd's David Gilmour. The manor itself has a huge 25 acres of land alongside the recording studio. It was also previously owned by record producer Trevor Horn but was sold back in 2007. The last know proprietor was Mark White, however the manor has now fallen into disrepair! Complete with 11 bedrooms, countless bathrooms, games room and tennis court, in its day the manor would have been great!
       
      The Explore: The explore itself went really well, after an hour or so drive finding our way down small country lanes we came across the manor. From an outside perspective there was no way of telling if the place was abandoned. Despite the manor being left empty the attached property is still in use. Not sure if this was still used as the recording studio or converted to offices but we avoided going into that area.
      The manor is a maze of rooms  and much of the original furnishings still remain untouched. We spent a good 2hrs wandering around uninterrupted!

      This was the first stop on our little euro trip! Not sure on the history of the place, but like many others around Europe its a beautiful house! Looking at other pictures online it looks a little stripped now.

      History:
      Doughty House is a large house on Richmond Hill in Surrey, England, built in the 18th century, with later additions. It has fine views down over the Thames, and both the house and gallery are Grade II listed buildings.

      The house was named after Elizabeth Doughty, who lived there from about 1786, and built St Elizabeth of Portugal Church in The Vineyard, Richmond. It was the residence of the Cook baronets from when it was bought in 1849 by the first baronet until after World War II. A 125-foot-long-gallery (38 m) was added in 1885 for the very important family art collection. The house was damaged by bombing in the Second World War and the 4th baronet moved to Jersey with 30 paintings from the collection.

      In 2012 the house was on the market with an asking price of £15,000,000.

      Future:
      C18 house with C19 alterations made by the Cook family. Planning Permission and Listed Building Consent have been granted to retain the main property as a single dwelling and to convert the gallery to ancillary accommodation, along with re-instating Doughty Cottage as the link between the house and gallery.


      The explore:
      So we spent basically all day in traffic jams to get there and back...
      The explore itself was surprisingly easy too; I must admit, that from what I have seen of it, I was expecting the place to be a little bigger than it was, but I guess thats the art of the wide angle lens!
      Anyway, great explore, would definitely revisit providing there are no traffic issues!

      Our first attempt to enter this beautiful house went so bad that were spotted by a guy who lives in another house of the estate... the guy was wearing a cyclist outfit on lycra so the house started to be called by my "gang" as "The Lycra House". Obviously that, two weeks latter we retourn at 6:00 a.m. and spend more than an hour in pitch black waiting for the first rays. The morning was cloudy, the light a beautifull shit, the clock was tiking and we only had one hour to "work" untill our dear good cyclist returns (we calculated that that fashion victim wolub be out of bed very soon on a sunday). Result; bad light, few pictures, will to return on Spring. The third visit is always the best...
