Not an explore as such so if admin feel it has no place here fell free to remove it. Zero81 and I spotted this on our way to somewhere else and liked the look of it and were intrigued. It is situated in the private grounds of a posh boarding school for 8-13 year olds. Info from the schools website. Work began on 29 June 1883 and completed on 01 Oct 1884. The cost was Ã‚Â£ 7980. The height of the tower is 161 feet and it has three lower floor rooms, a sewing room and a clock room. The clock is by J.B. Joyce of Whitchurch who still service it. The tower can be seen from six counties. Features include four mosaic clock faces, a sundial and a coat of arms. The clock tower is part of a private estate and is not open to visitors except on advertised open days.

Abandoned since 2008, this unassuming farm house on the outskirts of a town is quite the delight inside. I must admit the place is slightly trashed inside and getting derp'd but I decided to tidy it up a little bit. I think I'll even go back and do a bit more, its such a shame the place is in such a bad state! There was an old man who lived here who went by the name Wonderful Ted Bear to someone.... Starting off in the outbuildings, there is a lot of stuff left around but I didn't have time to check them all out Now for the inside of the House, one of the down stair rooms Another cool bedroom, this bed even had vibrate and movement controls, bit smelly though! I think this is why... ..poor old lad The overly full living room had this beauty though! The old, very old but cool bathroom! I think this old lad, liked to smell nice for the ladies (See below) Into the main living space of the gent, the kitchen The ole lad definately wasn't in the best of health Onwards upstairs These were strewn all over the stairs, getting wet and trampled on, but if people only took the time to stop and read... Old love letters between who she called Most Wonderful Ted Bear and signed herself as Puss Cat, it was clear Mr Ted Bear had an international lover This old lad was a proper lad! There were maybe around 50 letters, that were strewn down the stairs, so I picked em up and put em back in his bedroom for safe keeping! I read a couple of them and it seemed these two were meant to be, a real romance! Don't get the same thing nowadays with texts and emails. But it was touching reading them. Amazing! Thanks for looking
