    Thats Brilliant Amaris, youve found your own Bessingham Manor there!!, Thats top level Urbex, at its best:)
    And a dreadful thing from the cliff did spring. And its wild bark thrilled around. His eyes had the glow of the fires below. Twas the form of the Spectre Hound. 'Ha' yer fa'r got a dickey, bor?' 'Yis, an' he want a fule ter roide 'im, will yew cum?'

    Absolutely stunning, it's like they just got up and left. Anyone know what happened to the occupants?

    Not 100% sure on what happened to previous occupants I'm presuming that they passed away. I heard from a local that the current owner has got or is trying to get permission to demolish it .. which would be awful! But it is in a bad way and has suffered a small amount of fire damage as well .. :( I think they have had it authorised that they can build a more modern construction with swimming pool etc ..

    And thanks Shucks for the comment :) Made my day lol

    Amazing. The place should be saved in some way. That looks a really good TV for it's time.

    Pelikan also make fax machine supplies.

    Beautiful. It's such a shame the owner wants it demolished, I'd have thought parts of it could be restored - it's lovely

    That really is fantastic! What a find!
    Sure, you can spend ages looking round empty places, admiring the natural decay, but when somewhere contains as much history as this, it's something special. :)

    I agree it is something special! There is so much history there it is full of personal items ranging from clothing and books to paintings and bank slips!

    It is a shame that they didn''t restore it and want to demolish it at some point to build some faceless mansion with a swimming pool!
