    So this was around a 50 mile trip but all worth it. As the building was being prepared for demolition on our day of visit. All the rooms have been stripped now sadly but it was still an amazing site to explore. Half the building is listed so it will not all be demolished. We got there at 7AM so that we could avoid all the builders, and we did. If we arrived one hour later we would have had some trouble with security dogs as we saw a dog unit outside as we left. Anyway here's the pics I got....

    Interestingly MD's post contains a photograph taken in 1952; of Lt Fowell Heath C Squadron Leics Yeomanry, the original owner of the tin trunk. One can search down the whole history of this place using that small snippet of information, thanks for the link HJ!

    Superb photos considering it must have been pitch black. The second last picture shows there is a hole in the floor at the end of the stairs just in case there are any invaders this is what will happen to them.

    Nicely captured. I had a look for an earlier post for comparison and found one by MD which was done back in 2014, comparing with those in 2014 and Mikey's post the house has become worse for wear and what looks like vandalism. Here's the link to MD's post if you want a look see. https://www.derelictplaces.co.uk/main/residential-sites/29647-packington-hall-farm-packington-leicestershire-2014-a.html

    Superb set Mikey. Had a failure here about after ago as it was in the middle of the day and there were too many people around. Sad about the spray-can yobs. Despite that you have produced an excellent set of images as you always do.

    I have seen this appear a few times and quite liked the look of it.so as me and man gone wrong weew in the aerea we decided to have a little look.sadly since earlier reports by ferox and mb the place has been graffed up badly now which is quite sad to see.but I still enjoyed it with some lovely decay and interesting bits and bobs in the sheds which luckily enough were untouched.its a strange place an old farmhouse and sheds and barns situated in the middle of a housing estate.what the future...

    Been meaning to visit this place for ages. Don't have a lot of free time on my hands at the moment with the new job and general life stress and the bullshit that goes hand in hand with both. So, sorry I have been neglecting the forum! :( After having to go in to work on my day off, it was great to have a long overdue catch up with Gromr123 down this way. I am sure I was supposed to be about the weekend he first went, but I was probably working or had a dog shaped spanner flung into that...

    I always make a point of my hatred of videos whenever I bother to comment on them when posted here, but that is nicely done mate. Great shooting, composition, editing, music... a refreshing change. I still hate videos though. But that is a nice middle finger to the youtube generation. Thanks for posting that one mate, watched it a couple of times because it was short and tastefully done. Welcome to the forum!

    Welcome to the forum! I like the video a lot, it's rare I watch a whole video without skipping. It's very apocalyptic feeling and your use of light and processing is lovely. However, would you mind editing it to follow the guide to posting location reports... https://www.derelictplaces.co.uk/main/help-and-faqs/16286-guide-posting-location-report-new-post.html Or if you're not too interested in doing that then for future reference there is a thread for videos here;
