    Default The Potters Manor


    Going to the UK!

    Finally Martino got his driver license, so i let him drove to Calais, where we could take the ferry the next morning.
    After we arrived on the parkinglot in Calais in the middle of the night we drank some whiskey and wine and slept in the car.
    Next morning the ferry brought us to the country where they drive on the other side, gallons instead of liters, and pounds instead of euro's.
    But nice people and very nice landscapes!

    We had a meetup with some other explorers to go to some nice places together.
    First location: The Potters Manor (nothing to do with Harry)



    A huge villa, empty for some years now.
    Pity we were just 1 week to late, because local shitheads used it to for their agression therapy.
    But: cool company and still enough left to shoot.

    Nice shots bud, at least the main part of the banister was still standing when I got there only one part was on sob sob and it would appear people are taking momentos as there is a lot less lying around now to photograph
