After discovering this place, reading a news article I decided to take a look. Theres not a great deal of history on this place other than the fact it was used as a home for ww2 soldiers after coming back from war. It's been home to several owners of the years however the place has fallen into disrepair. The manor is currently up for sale.
The explore itself went really well, after making our way through the grounds and finding an entrance, we were greeted with a stunning pool, with paintings on every wall. As we moved further on we found a sauna, bar, a superb inside courtyard, a huge basement complete with model railway and what looked like a full size tank made of wood, whoever previously lived in the manor was clearly very creative... The vast majority of rooms have Been emptied out however a few furnishings still remain. We made our way onto the roof when we noticed a man walking down the drive towards the manor, we noticed him walk around checking through the windows before leaving again. Must have been looking after the place and making sure nothing was damaged. We didn't get caught however so that's a bonus!
Since then we have been back however our original entrance had been sealed back up.
Explored with 4 other non members
What a strange explore this was, We all had an uneasy feeling that someone was watching us, within 10mins of gaining access there was a police helicopter hovering above the building don't think it was actually there for us but it sure freaked us out lol, after keeping a low profile for what seemed forever the helicopter left but only gave us another 20mins of daylight so defo going to go back for a revisit as we unfortunately didn't get to explore the basement due to it getting dark
The manor house in this form was built in the mid 1800's and has been vacant since the last owner died in the late 1980's
The house is a treasure trove and a photographers and explorers paradise, but sadly I can't see the interior of the building lasting very much longer.
There have been major collapses, some whole rooms have completely gone, some of the middle floor is only accessable by ladder and the 3rd floor is just not doabale at all
Splored with SK and Mr & Mrs Bones
The house is names "Bull Manor" due to the security arrangements
The main entrance and stairs
The Music Room
The "Green" room
A couple of odd rooms off the landing
