    Talking Harlequin Manor : March 2013


    It seems that the snow didnt stop some of us at the weekend, despite its best efforts and severe warning to drivers to take heed and stay at home, we had things to see and do and many many miles to cover to get to them

    A fab weekend of adventure , lools , snow stuck cars , glimpses of virgin splores of things to come and this... a real delightful if murky past manor, a rare find in that it is decaying thru sheer neglect, bad weather and time, it seems without the pollution of vandalism and chavery , so you'll understand if details are not forthcoming

    This was our second attempt here , Ssshhhh. and I were once again joined by Perjury Saint in our bid to splore....




    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ACCESS+++++++++++ +++++++ ++++++++++++++

    We were literally grinning like cheshire cats to finally get in here

    it's a contrasting mix of not too bad nick

    and then areas of more in your face decay and age

    as for artefacts there are quite a few bits and bobs about not entirely stripped or anything

    one cant help indulging ones self with the fantastic settings and natural light a chance to show what keeps the cold at bay in these subzero temps :D

    as I regain my decorum and the lols die down, we make our way deeper inside, the equisitness notches up a tad, these sublime lime corridors were just awesome, we eye the PIRS carefully but they seem nice.

    and then when you enter the epic hall get ready.... just a little a first, we'll go in tight so you can anticipate the coming vista

    The Curious case of the Doppelganger by AlternativeDayOut, on Flickr

    out in the many corridors , one of the numerous buckets and other recepticals to catch the nonstop water drops , someone is kinda looking after this gaff or they need the water to...

    Lovely stuff there from both of you! Have to say though, that last shot from Sshhhh is just outstanding!

    Would love to get inside that library... could spend hours looking through those books :)
