    Default Scientist Manor / Red Dress Manor - November 2012


    After visiting a few sites in the vicinity, it was decided that a trip back here, might be a nice idea......



    I've called it scientists manor as this is what it was first named when it was found, since then i think it has more commonly become known as red dress manor......

    i first visited here in early May, it had had very few visits at the time, and whilst being derped, and showing excessive wear and tear, it was in interesting condition, so much stuff in tact, and was an odd and eerie day out... ( i've been to my share of derphouses and that but this one felt a bit queer )
    i said to the original finder that i would keep it secret, keep it safe and i always did, it obviusly did get out there more and reports moved from being non-public to more public, but it did fortunately retain a code name in one way shape or form.....

    now i totally agree with code naming places like this, quite categorically, it is somebodies life that you are noseying through..... but on my re-visit it was really saddening to see the disregard that some "visitors" have had for the persosn stuff,
    much stuff has grown legs and left, and much stuff has been mindlessly flung to the floor, so i guess in a gentle way it should be a reminder that coded or not... and careful as we (as derpers) can be...as soon as somethings public on a forum.... this is going to occur.... (this isn't a dig at all, i just think that having seen this place now including this info is noteworthy)

    Also on another note, someones most definately squatting here now.... and someone is also feeding cats here..... the outhouse must have nigh on 50-60 empty catfood tin wrappers in it ...... (odd)

    Great set of photos, such a lovely place.
    Why go through a door when there's a perfectly good window?

    Hmmm, I've just looked through your original album. It certainly was very different back then, my visit looked much like yours and there were certainly a few bits in your original photos that were absent.

    I'd like to think the owner may have removed some of the more sensitive items himself rather than explorers taking them?

    I would also hope this, but it's been abandoned for a long time, maybe 30 odd years? Im not sure it even has owners, it does have very protective neighbours though so maybe the traffics it's had alerted them
    It's a shame it's in such disrepair it's a listed building as well

    Great report, and stunning photos.
    No worries about naming convention, places like this getting stripped is the reason we don't insist on real names!
    I hope this stays preserved for long enough for other real explorers to see it.

    Hmmm yeh I totally agree these types of places should go without a name, it can just never be full protection once its out in public on t'interweb, I hope some more people get to see it to and don't meet it's new inhabitant
    It's sad to see someone squatting in an already sad place like this

    Nice set of pics there!

    What makes you think that somebody is squatting there? I didn't have that feeling when we were there...

    Very nice and I heartily agree with your comments. We were sickened by what we saw at one site on two visits just a matter of 6 months apart, so much so that we've not posted our pix from some of the places we have explored.

    They've taken the sofa cushions from the front room and made a bed in the TV room, clothes hanging off grandfather clock, camping stove, sleeping bag,tea bags and matches.... Lol
    A well equipped squatter maybe but it smelt of person and sleep if you get what I mean
