    Default Bessingham/Bear Manor - (Some call it mellow yellow?) - (Feb 2013)


    First off, Hi... me first post here.

    Long story short - found mesen with a couple of spare hours to kill, in North Norfolk recently. Wandering the country lanes, armed with my usual weapon/camera of choice, imagine my surprise when I stumble upon this derelict gaff...

    Abound with exuberance I found a way in, I set about capturing what I could, thinking I'd return at a later date, better prepared. I spent a quick hour scampering around the bottom floor... being on my own and seeing the condition of the higher floors, I didn't fancy risking life and limb getting up there!



    Alongside reviewing my captures when I got home, I googled the subject matter and came across this forum... a mixture of dismay, relief and excitement enveloped me. Dismay, because someone else had been before me, and higher! Relief, because on reflection given the warnings I've seen here, I didn't go higher!

    Excitement, because I may have found some like minded peeps?

    I deliberated hard, before posting these. But in an effort to furthering this bug that seems to have bitten me...

    on with the pictures. No history, as such (as on searching here, it seems to have been done to death.)

    Anyways... thanks for looking and a few extra photos available in the Flickr link in my signature, below if you feel so inclined.

    Also, if you fancy a quick PM to introduce yourself with a view to hooking up in the Norfolk, Suffolk, Lincs or Cambs area, I'd love to hear from you. Looking to further this buzz...

    Welcome along!
    Fantastic photos!
    I've climbed the parapets of Chateau Noisy and slept in Chernobyl night after night, but you would not catch me going upstairs in Bessingham Manor!
    Glad you found us, look forward to seeing more!

    lovely shots!
    Those who destroy what's been left behind, are those ignorant enough to believe that history only belongs in museums and books.

    Thanks very much for the kind words and effectively an endorsement, to carry on doing some more of a similar nature.

    *goes off to scope further subject matter*
