    Default The Forgotten Hotel - October 2016


    I'm not sure if this place has been reported before. If it has, PM me and I will change the name.

    This was the last of the 4 explores H and I managed to do on our trip. After 4 nights in Scotland I wanted to surprise her by taking her to York for the last night because she had always wanted to visit there. Other than exploring our other hobby is visiting old/historic/weird pubs and The Golden Fleece was high on her list, so I wanted to take her to say thanks with putting up with me working so much the past few months.

    We found this place on the way. We parked up near by and decided to take a stroll over and see if it was as empty as it looked, and of course if it was doable. We mooched around the back away from the road and it wasn't looking promising so we decided to head off, then I spotted something that looked out of place - and just like that we were in!

    It was a very beautiful place with some lovely features. I can imagine it would have been a great place to sink a few jars.























































































    By the time we left it had started to rain so I have no externals I am afraid. Seeing an empty bar was quite a sad sight for us, so we set off on the rest of our trip to find one that wasn't abandoned. Thankfully we found plenty!

    Thanks for looking!

    Must have been the house of a noted family at one time because the family crests shows in two of your shots, I must investigate as to who the family was.

    Great bonus mooch and fab set of pix. It looks vaguely familiar and I think I may have seen a report on a forum elsewhere.

    Thank you all for your kind comments, I am very grateful.

    Hugh - I will PM you some pics that I didn't post that show them in more detail. I didn't post them here because I didn't think they would be of interest. I just thought they were beautiful so snapped a couple before leaving. I'm keen to hear if you uncover anything.
