    Great photos of the place jsp, that ceiling didn't look like it had long left when I went, so I'm not surprised it's collapsed now.

    The Gatehouse did probably have a more 'solid' foundation than we are used to today, but basically the old building just sat in the ground and would have moved as a whole unit - if it did move at all, any cracks would have been just interior hairline ones to the plaster work. As you imply, the newer foundations most likely could have altered the drainage characteristics of the land and this is something that planning officers look at very carefully these days. Go back a few decades to when...

    This is a great find! Those posters are in a great condition. I also experienced tripod problems with soft floors, they don't make it simple do they! Mind you tripod on a metal grid walkway is somewhat more challenging with the legs falling through the gaps. Thanks for this, great photos.

    Thank you all.are you sure ds the gatehouse was not built on a more solid foundation as they did in them days amd it's near the main drive up.were the extension might not have had the same quality foundation.and is set further back on damper ground.

    Well, after another day of searching, I think I found it - looks like it was due to go to auction but was withdrawn. Will keep my eye out :)

    Thanks to you for the inspiration with these sites :) folly was very picturesque, and the pool a nice find. I probably don't deserve too much sympathy with the broken toe... it was self inflicted after a beer :D

    Ah...two faves of mine. The folly looks ace with the snowdrops and the old pool is a find. As for RAF Harlaxton decontam, go waaaay back with that. Nice double-header report mate. Hope you are on the mend.

    At first glance i wasn't sure what to make of it, looking in through the door i could clearly see the roof had given way (photo 1)much more than previous reports. I thought to myself shall i go and have a look and after a few minutes i was in having a look around. What a nightmare to photograph as every shot required re positioning tripod, some legs fully extended and some not, some shots were hand held with additional light as i don't like using the flash. This is the first house/cottage i...

    The church congregation is still around they left this church in the 1990s and moved to Shalesmoor. They are a sort of ' born again Christian' movement IV spoken to one of its members a while back they moved because the building was not big enough plus maintenance problems. The church was sold to a developer who planned to turn into flats but fell though. Looks like the upper floor is a pigion hotspot. Nice report.

    Broke my toe over Christmas, so not been able to get out too much. Saw Hughie’s report on Culverthorpe last year, and made a mental note to pay a visit when next on my way to see my mate in Nowheresville, Lincolnshire. Enjoyed this more than I thought I would, I think due to the photographic snowdrops around. A mooch further into the estate, and I came across what looks like it may have been a very old swimming pool. Also visited another site on the other side of Grantham; RAF Harlaxton....

    Regarding the price, for a tour of 12 people, there are 5 LU staff. 2 guides, 2 safety people and a security guard. They also book a hotel conference room for the intro - with tea, coffee and cookies and give you a nice giveaway. You also get a free pass into the museum. It does feel good value when you tally it all up.
