    Default Heckington Manor, January 2014


    Built in the early 1900s in the village of Heckington in Lincoln lies this abandoned manor house which became a rehabilitation home for alcoholics. It was closed due to government funding and has been lying empty since. Visited here a few years ago, was in very good shape then. Now it is falling into disrepair. The beautiful fire place from the living room has been stolen :(

    This was plan B of the day, our first location ended short, but we got to have a long and friendly chat with the owners! :)

    Great stuff and a fabulous staircase too. Pity the stained glass window is boarded up, but of course it would be smashed if it wasn't
