    Default Red Dress Manor - Oct 2012 (updated!)


    Had an awesome day out with Urbex SW and Priority 7, managed to get a full non-fail explore day this time, but was very worn out by the time I got home. Great company as always. Lots of driving, lots of walking, and lots of wet feet!

    This place has been on here before, and with reports of others being caught we decided not to stay too long, so we all split up, I headed upwards and worked my way down, these photos are left in the order of my explore so you see it unfold as I did.

    The one thing I wanted to see most was the red dress, hence the name of this thread. I found the dress but the matching photo wasnt there!!! But luckily it was found later on downstairs.

    Obviously I wont be giving out any history or details on this one.


















































































    Thanks for looking


    I'm keen to see the additional photos that will follow this from Urbex-SW and Priority7 as I am very sure I have missed quite a bit, I think we all agreed that we felt slightly uneasy in this house and didn't want to push our luck and stay too long...

    Why go through a door when there's a perfectly good window?

    Great shots there dude and it really was a great day wasn't it!

    As UE-OMJ says, we all had a bit of a strange feeling whilst we were there and I'm not sure if I actually told either P7 or OMJ but shortly after we gained entry, a 4x4 pulled up outside with dogs in the back... thankfully they left shortly after!

    This was a perfect location to have a play about with my new 50mm lens so here are a few of my shots!
















    A great day out, great locations but even better company! Time to plan the next explore!

    Holy fook! That's the Dogs!!! smashing report and pics OMJ!Keep'em coming!
    And a dreadful thing from the cliff did spring. And its wild bark thrilled around. His eyes had the glow of the fires below. Twas the form of the Spectre Hound. 'Ha' yer fa'r got a dickey, bor?' 'Yis, an' he want a fule ter roide 'im, will yew cum?'

    utterly stunning location by the looks of these equally stunning images! seriously beautiful shots, just really jealous that i didn't take them!
    Those who destroy what's been left behind, are those ignorant enough to believe that history only belongs in museums and books.

    I don't remember seeing a previous report on this site.

    The red dress and the photograph of it being worn bring a lump this miserable, hard-hearted solicitor's throat.

    Thanks for the kind comments everyone, it's very much appreciated....

    BUT, go back and have another look. I just realised 10 of the better photos were missing from my report!!!

    Why go through a door when there's a perfectly good window?
