i have visited this place several times now ... love the place but so run down and unloved now for a bit history on the place Built in 1899 by the famous shipbuilder and entrepreneur William C. Gray, the son of Sir William Gray also of shipbuilding fame, it was the Gray family’s main residence, though they did also own similarly sized properties in Yorkshire and Devon. As well as William C Gray and his wife, 7 other members of the Gray family occupied the building for nearly 30 years, with a staff of 12 to make sure their every need was looked after. Even with all these people in there the mansion would have seemed spacious and luxurious with its 30 rooms, ballroom and indoor swimming pool. It was put up for sale for many years with no buyers eventually was opened back up as a training centre. This was short lived and closed its doors for the last time in 2006, and swiftly became the target of many vandals and arsonists and still is to this day unfortunately and stood empty ever since to this day and is on at risk register of grade 2 buildings Now for the best bits hope you like Ball room number 1 Ball room number 2 Former swimming pool under ground under ground The End till the next time
