    Talking The Mock Manor House/Drs Manor - October 2014


    Mockingbird Pays A Visit!

    Done god knows how many times, but I always wanted to see the building, of course its linked with many reports in the papers, but I simply wanted to see the building due to the design, its rather beautiful but also very empty, books scattered around along with many newspapers dating around from 1991. Sadly not much to show but one im glad I ticked off, one special item remains outside the others had been stolen, but the place has seen the wrath of locals who feel the need to "tag" things, rather enjoyed reading some names from people who had paid a visit though. Bumped into another explorer here, who seemed fairly new, I didn't catch her name sadly, but shows people will still come an visit here despite being a shell, a really nice relaxed explore none the less, upstairs floors shifty in places, but a nice place to end the day on from travelling up and down the country. :)

    I shall scrap the history of the owner as many people know it, an feel no need to bring it up in my report, so shall stick some info about the house.
    Its a 16th century house, the stone work that has been used to build the house originally came from Hampole priory which dates back to the doomsday book in the middle ages when some years later Henry the VIII ordered the ransacking and break up of Hampole priory monestery, its up for sale at £295,000.00 but you can either buy the land or the house judging by the sign outside (Or both if your greedy ;) )

    I think I must be one of the few people on the forum never to have been here, despite the fact I used to live 10 minutes away . Seriously though, a very nice report and more proof that every different visitor picks out different things and adds their own perspective. Getting further north also I see. :)

    I definitely would love a good look round here, particularly if there are books around (I like books). It is interesting to see the decline of the house. I remember driving past it years ago and thinking that it looked empty but at the time I couldn't be sure. I then heard the story behind it and realised it was empty but I never got round to going in. (I think I was a little put off because the events were still relatively recent ). Keep up the good work and the travelling. :)
