    Default T Manor - February 2012


    This is a strange one, situated within a large country estate. The impressive building has been forgotten and left, due to what I can only imagine must be lack of funds, a small part of the mansion contains a inhabited flat, so it is a bit strange wondering about, and finding a plasterboard wall, behind which someone is living.

    The colours inside are amazing, sort of reminded me of the med. There is also plenty of objects and fittings laying about, including the amazing stove.

    Wondering around this place with t2020jr was funny, no matter how hard he tried to be quite, he would find the loose slab, squeaky board or drop the torch. Then he decided to get his finger trapped in the tripod mechanism, and do a silent scream whilst doing the pain jig for about 5 minutes! Being quite for an hour took its toll and he was mumbling constantly under his breath by the time he left.

    I hope the place is sorted soon as it is starting to get in a sorry state in places, such a waste. Sorry for the lack of outside piccies, but trying to leave a bit of mystery to deter the scallywaggs

















































    Thanks for googling

    What a stonker tank, looks like a renaissance build but there are indications of later Georgian and Edwardian facelifts. A mixture of architecture spanning three centuries and typical of a properly 'lived in through the ages' period building well off the tourist beaten track. The more well known period buildings tend to be returned (or kept) to their original architecture.

    I really like this building. I'd far rather look at the home than the show house. Thanks for sharing and for keeping it quiet, the range cooker alone stripped and rebuilt to original condition would be worth 8-10k

    It's a beautiful place this - although I must admit my heart skipped a beat when I saw 'T Manor' as there is another even more impressive one that goes by that moniker...
