    Default Manor House, Crowborough, July 2010


    This place stands alone amidst fields and woodland and took a bit of finding. After some fun and games involving a large rock and the side of the car, we managed to locate it and made our way inside.

    The entry was breathtaking and the rest of the explore didn't disappoint. Not too sure on the history of the place but we found things dating back to the 70s.

    Absolutely superb explore with, as always, Flame.


    The site that greeted us upon entry:







    Mono shot of the stairway:





    A vast reception room:





    One of many pieces of artwork just strewn around the house:





    Doors out onto what was probably once a garden area:





    The human element in the building was uncanny:





    More artwork, this one slightly creepy if I'm honest:





    These were left lying on the floor next to the rose:





    Further evidence that the previous occupants were artists:





    Corridor between the kitchen areas:





    Another piece of artwork:





    This is what we found upon entering one of the bedrooms. Bizarre:





    Correspondence left lying on the floor. Interestingly, it detailed the fun of exploring unfamiliar places (details Photoshopped out):





    We decided to indulge the grandeur of the building with a few costume shots:








    Thanks as always for looking!

    Looks like things have moved around since we visited..but I must say your shots using the model are really good indeed.The one on the stairs is tops for me.

    Thanks guys; really appreciate the comments. The 'model shots' add a bit of a twist so we enjoy doing them. They're a team effort with the idea and costume etc so we'll both bask in glory if that's ok?

    Good stuff Vertex, as Klempner69 says - stuff seems to be moving on a regular basis. I like your original shots.

    What an eventful night! Went to find this lovely looking place, found a track that was a public footpath, spent 3/4 of an hour walking up and down, couldn't find it..

    Got in the car and drove up and down the road, stopping and looking over approx 4 gateways to see if we could spot it..

    Got chased down the road by a gold 10 plate Range Rover, stopped and they asked what we were doing..Told them we were looking for this house, and he told me he was the owner and that he'd called the Police?! I replied with, so you live in a derelict house thats been empty for 15 years then

    I wound the window up, bloke and his wife got bored after a couple of minutes and drove off..

    I shall return, during the day
