The Baron Hill Estate was built in 1618 at the request of Richard Bulkeley. In 1776, architect Samuel Wyatt re-designed the mansion in a Neo-Palladian style. By World War I the Bulkeley family had moved from the mansion and no longer used it as a permanent residence (too expensive). The story goes that in 1939 at the outbreak of World War II the mansion was requisitioned by the government and used as a temporary housing for Polish soldiers. The Polish soldiers found the place too cold and decided to start a "small" fire within the mansion so they would be moved to somewhere better. However the fire destroyed a large part of the interior and the soldiers were moved from the house to tents on the Baron Hill Estate grounds (karma!). The mansion was abandoned afterwards and is now derelict.

This place is massive and I only had limited time as I wasted the day before traipsing all over the wrong bramble covered hill..........

A great write up and what a contrast in editing as for a moment had to scroll back to take on board what I was looking at as so very different.

Horses for courses I say :D

Thanks for the share (y)

Some nice pics there. Such a shame this place is so far gone, when you see how amazing it once was.
