    Default The Manna House, Near Lincoln *Image Heavy*


    As soon as I got to this place the weather turned to torrential rain, thunder and strong winds. Got absolutely soaked and had to hide out in the shed until it calmed down. There are some people in a couple of pictures, I scared the shit out of them lol. They were thinking of buying the place as a project but there's too much structural work to be done. The current owner had started renovations but got into trouble with the planning department. It's a listed house and he's removed things he shouldn't have.
    Some real nice features here and not a scrap of graffiti :)
    Some of the photos look a bit wonky. The stairs are actually on the slant anyway, they are subsiding. Other dodgy photos taken in the cellar as it was pitch black down there.

    It has 9 bedrooms, various reception rooms, stables, outbuildings, and 1.8 acres of land. Was previously owned by Sir Richard Sutton.

    I won't upload all the 250 photos I took, just a select few :)

    It's hard to imagine anyone ever thought wallpaper like that was a good idea.

    Now then Miz Firestorm, that is a pretty good catch

    The cellar walls are bulging due to a water leak. it was literally raining in the far end cellar. It's a shame the current owner started renovations and messed it up.

    Good find, that's the kind of place I love looking around. Those cellars are very similar to Bessingham manor. Especially the one with all the alcoves in.
