    Yeh I probably should, and might remove it later, but for now I need it there to dispel the rumours!

    Yep, very quick. I got home in record time too!

    Hmm I was told this was stripped indeed I was roasted about it because I told another explorer how to find it and it had been stripped as a result. Happy its intact sad that I have been roasted over something that hasn't actually happened

    There is a whole sub-story Strider that has spun out from this one with a few of us being harassed/roasted for the place becoming more widely known and supposedly completely stripped of all its "trinkets" hence OMJ's mad statement
    P.S they are Gooseberries mate I thought they were olives until I took a closer look when I went there

    I still don't get why this has come about. You can get the location of it from google if you search for it. Glad it hasn't been stripped but very confused as to why the rumours/roastings have been going on.

    Looks like it's days are numbered as there is a planning application to replace it with this:-



    Shame it wasn't sold and renovated shortly after it's initial abandonment, the original structure has to be at least 300 years old While the replacement will definitely, visually, fit in with the surrounding properties, I doubt it will still be there in another 300 years.

    Glad it's still there to be enjoyed at the moment - We were going to do it last weekend but it's a long way for us to go over
