    Cool, will re-word the report to state that Heinrich Himmler definitely did live here, but maybe some of his extended family didnít...

    Yup. Look at GoogleMaps. Then get in your car and go out and look. That's why it's called scouting for locations.

    Hi there everyone, I'm a Sheffield Hallam Masters in Filmmaking Student and I am currently location scouting. I am just looking to find out what is available within a 30-50 mile radius of Sheffield. Does anyone have any advice on where to start looking please? At this stage, I don't need anything specific and would just like to know what may be out there. Thank you, Adam

    Thanks for all the links you inserted. I was never in doubt that you got the wrong building, but I can read German and in the report by Erich Mielke he stated that Himmler lived there from January 1940 to July of 1943 and he used this house as a base and a fancy guest house. But his family lived in Tergensee.

    Interesting building. I can only assume that the areas marked 24F, 23E, etc were working areas where a certain task would be done.

    1. The History Not too much history about on this place. The factory belonged to Mayar Silk, a premier Shanghai-based silk manufacturer, which first formed in Shanghai back in 1917. Tsai Shengbai was appointed General Manager of Mayar Silk Mills in 1937 and in 1956 he was sent to Mayar's factory in Hong Kong. Other than that, there appears to be no information on this place or the plans for its future. It's been abandoned for at least 20 years and occupies extremely valuable real estate land...

    Get your minds out the gutter! I've since found out that by complete coincidence the previous occupant's initials were also 'HH' so they're probably original.

    TBF He had more than one houseÖ How much time he spent at each I couldn't tell you, I wasn't there. I was shying away from posting links on here as I didnít want the location details to outweigh the history. But every mention of the place includes the former owner. It is very publicly known (especially locally, which I expect the wedding tog was) that it was seized for Himmlers possession. "Ten years later, in 1929, the Briton acquired Harry Goodwin Hart , then director of Unilever ,...

    I'm sorry to be the bringer of bad news but this is NOT the home of Heinrich Himmler. He lived in a villa near Tergensee called "Lindenfycht", as stated in these website links Himmler's Home Google Map link https://www.google.com/maps/place/47¬į44'28.9"N+11¬į44'18.8"E/@47.7414537,11.7369866,376m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0x0 You'll need to scroll down to see his home Tegernsee If the wedding photographer was German I think that he would know the history of the building and wouldn't take...

    Not too bad, a promising renovation. You cannot beat a good toilet with a proper wooden seat and an old-fashioned cistern.

    Must have had great wealth. Not just to afford a mausoleum but to then decorate it so much. The ceiling of the crypt is stunning, the best I've seen yet. Bones? I know of a small grave yard between England and Scotland where grave stones have sometimes been supported using human bones within the mortar..

    Mausoleum K #02 Tomb Raider Surrounded by bodies and human remains we found ourselves inside a hundred-years-old crypt during one of our adventures. This might be the most mystical but also grim places we have ever explored. Due to this small structure looking like it originated from some movie or a game, we felt like real-life tomb raiders when we were unveiling the secrets of the neglected grave. Immerse yourself in the fascinating but yet sad world of a long-forgotten familyís mausoleum....

    BikinGlynn started a thread Glatting Farm in Rural Sites
    Not much to say about this place really. Its a farmhouse reputed to date back to the 15th century which is grade 2 listed. The property is "vacant" & it was under offer when we visited some months back, but you could snap it up with a cheeky offer if u have a spare 1.69 mill laying around. I did like it though, its a big house nestled on the edge of the south downs & u cant see another man made object from here which is nice! If I was to use a code name it would be frog farm as we were...
