Built in 1808. 

Tucked away in the corner of a public garden and in need of repair

Apart from a grumpy old boy telling me im not supposed to be here it was a nice little place

Looks like this place has some beautiful architecture, a shame to see it's failing to ruin. Nice set of photos, thanks for posting :)

Oh wow, what an amazing building. It's difficult to imagine what you could do with such a building, so I suppose it's no surprise it is disused. A shame really because it's so nice.

Damn, sad to see the window frames literally dropping out of such a nice looking building. Nicely photographed too (y)

Really a beauty, it would be worth restoring.

What a beautiful building, I really like the curvature and the windows! Orangeries don't really have much a place today. I only found out quite recently that they are called Orangeries because they used to protect Orange and fruit trees in the winter, who'd have thought?! Basically a posh conservatory! There is an old Asylum in Lincoln where they had one, it was completely taken apart and moved, it now houses crocodiles or alligators at a nearby wildlife park.  Lets hope they save it and it can be a massive something ?

Now that is some nice architecture right there. Hope they sort it out although it looks a bit far gone ?
