Okay ive posted some of my old stuff, now onto some more recent explores.

I have watched this place for many years, earlier this year i decided it was time to give it a go, Having known it has been abandoned for over 4 years, and with no building work going on anymore it was the perfect time. I couldnt wait to be the 1st one to visit this place.

Some history on the place, It was built around 1890 and since then it has had a few moddern additions. Its original use was as a home for a wealthy mill owner from the local area, it then became a Missionary for kids and families from other countries to live in. It then went on to be a hotel/B&B and rented flats and rooms, before its final use as a home for 4 asian families. Now it lays abandoned with no clear plan for the future.

The inside of the property is sooooo clean, as you will see from my pics. You could move straight in if you wanted to, Carpet on the floor whitch was rather nice (even took my boots off) it was that clean lol. Not normally what i want to see tbh, we all love a bit of decay, But i just had to see it, The place blew me away with its grand staicase and sculpted ceilings, Some nice bits of furniture lying about too.

Now heres where the fun starts......

After being inside for around 40min I was on the ground floor just taking a pic down the main hallway, when i notiched a shadow of a person stood at the outside of the front door, Knowing there was no secca on the place my 1st thought was that is was the owner, or the police.....

So I grabbed my things and headed for the exit point in a bit of a rush lol, upon getting to the exit point I was greeted by not one or 2 police men, but 8 of them all with their battens drawn :-/ Needless to say I wasnt expecting that. After a long talk with the police about what i was doing in there, and the whole you shouldnt be in there speech, they took my details and let me on my way. 

Now on with the pics.....



























Thanks for looking, hope you enjoyed the pics :)

Quite a nice find that, even thou as you say it's very clean and clearly maintained by someone, it's still a fantastic building. There's one like that near me that's been for sale for years now and looks to be equally as grand inside. Close call with the police thou, begs the question how did they know you were there?

Thanks pal :) tbh its not being looked after by anyone at the moment, The previous owners left town and havent been back at all, piles of letters were crammed into the outside letter box, and a good 10 yellow pages pushed threw the gates.

And there are a few houses in close proximity to this place, so im guessing i was spotted going in and thats why the po po turned up, No signs of PIR's or any other alarm systems inside.
