I have driven past this place daily for about 5 years and only recently whilst stuck in traffic in a thunderstorm did I spot it.It looked very atmospheric in dark clouds and lightning so Drama Queen and I came back to have a look around.Currently seeking permission to view interior properly but here are some general shots of the exterior and grounds etc.
We cant find much on its history,but we believe it to be circa 1930`s and a family home to an affluent family for many years.In later times up to about 2006 it was the HQ of a local sign company.Whilst its not one of our best explores the place cut a lonely presence in a busy area with one of the largest gardens we have ever seen.No doubt it was once a beautiful setting before urbanisation.
The grand driveway.
Goes into extensive and awesome garden.
Derelict fish pond,which we nearly fell into.
The rear area,conservatory.
Then we came across this old gem in a garage.
It hasnt turned a wheel in a long time,quite spooky close up we thought
A rather atmospheric window.
Nature is trying to eat the garage roof
Side view of retro windows.
Front view,similar original windows.
Interior with wood panelling,old organ and furnishings.
A rather scary light fitting,a good set for a horror movie in this place.
A similar lantern outside.
A general frontal shot,with lonesome swing.
