    Post Potters Manor House June'10


    Hey guys,

    Just a quick report as I'm pretty tired from taking soooo many photos today! I finally managed to get to the wonderful Potters Manor House after many months of wanting to and never being able to. The house is amazing, the weather was perfect and the day was .. interesting haha! The locals are .. also interesting and do go on a bit but are ok ..

    "History - Potters Manor House was built in 1904 by the classical architect Hugh Jokin. It nestles well hidden near the village of Nevertell just off the A40999 in Hampnex. The last inhabitants were a family of artisans and potters and for some reason, that we will probably never know, left the house with all its contents including many paintings and full wardrobes of clothes."

    The house contains many paintings and belongings and is a decaying museum of peoples lives and work .. I have found out a bit about the people who lived there but won't go into all that as it isn't overly interesting and .. well .. yeah!

    On with the photos .. (tried to include some of the photos that don't usually get posted in reports)

    The first glimpse ..







    And in we go ... :)



    First things first .. a cup of tea ..



    And here comes the rest of the photos:











































    And the last one ...



    And there we go a few .. quite a few .. of my photos from my Potters Manor House explore, had a great time and can't wait to go back! Explored with my other half and Allstar.

    Thanks for looking

    :o

    Brilliant, I like this report! You have captured the lives of the previous occupants very well.

    Good work!

    That is incredible! I think it's got a bit beyond the tin of plastic fix-it! Is there really a village called Nevertell? Wonderful.

    Love seeing your pics of the artwork and supplies left there. Fabulous explore and beautifully reported. :)

    That's because it's located in 'Nevertell'. ;) And, to be honest, we don't know who you are. Please read the forum rules. :)
