Taken a bit of time but now up to date with my latest explores, this one was in two parts, Sunday and last night. Over the years I have past this place hundreds of times and after seeing it redundant have stopped by but never been able to get in. Then Sunday I had a text asking if I wanted to have a look as he had been given a entry point. It don't take me long to decide which answer it was going to be, lucky I was already home from the track I work but my mate only had limited time (Hence the two visits) We got there and his information was correct but a little on the tight side but we (We met a extra 2 went last night) in but did not think there was so much left and soon ran out of time.

There was a notice on the gate Sunday with a different newer one there last night, both said the place will be demolished on or after the 20th Oct 2014 and they had failed to get anyone to be able to buy the place :( they had plenty of offers but they were unable to come up with the money.

Over the two visits I took 140 odd photos and these can be found here

I drove past this one recently I think... it's heading towards the castle and gardens by the sea, right? I really wanted to stop but group said no :(

Looks good!
