    Looks to me a house, office and a storage area. But I didn't see anything spooky, unless it was the dead animals that you saw, pretty common in these threads.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    Any large scale OS map should indicate what this place was/is.

    I wonder what that place was. Maybe the goat holds the truth. :)

    Hyperbole much? Strange building though, any clue as to what it was used for?

    If photo401 is correct, then it could be Camp 184 in the following list -

    https://fusiontables.google.com/Data...1567#rows:id=1

    However; the photographic evidence does not seem to tie in with images from 1946 of the Llanmartin Camp, which just show the normal wooden barrack type huts. Still images might be wrong and it should be noted that this place was originally build by the Yanks as a transit camp for D Day, so could consist of unusual construction. The remains certainly look later than 1950 in style (when much of these 'estates' were finally handed back to original landowners) - so much later new build by landowner or much later modifications to original camp barracks? Who knows? Evidence indicates that it was perhaps a trendy dwelling house and this would tie in with the general trend in the architectural scene at that time; with the designs of more modernistic buildings coming to the fore.
