    Not very clever as it lets the locals know what you are upto and might put them on edge - especially if he was the owner. Mind you, it might not be a bad thing if this site gets a bit more locked down as ive never seen a place get so ransacked in the space of 6 weeks.

    No, I told him I was looking for it as its up for sale, even told him the agents name.. I didn't mention anything else, just that I was interested because its for sale..

    Wasn't a good idea him driving 2 tonne of metal on my bumper in the rain either..

    He isn't the owner, he owns a farm nearby..

    Great report

    The costume shots are very good.

    I doubt its the owner, as she is a 104 year old lady living in a care home!!

    This place has been like picadilly circus recently, glad I was one of the first few to go through its doors as it now looks pretty trashed.......heard that it has been granted planning permission so it will be levelled soon.

    Oh..........and we should call it Muriels Manor as thats the owners name.........lol

    She owns alot of the neighbouring property's also

    In a rich area like that you'll likely stick out like a sore thumb. Rich people are usually bone idle and bored, and will likely think you're a burglar than photographer, and not hesitate to call the cops.

    I would advise you do some planning before you go to a place. If you'd have used googlemaps or bingmaps or whatever in satellite view, you could have gotten in and out without being seen or raising awareness.
