    Default Joker's Manor - October 2017


    Massive thanks to mikeymutt for the info on this one. I owe you a pint at next years meet up if you make it along!

    Sadly I missed the boat with this beaut.

    I visited this place on the way back from Scotland. I set off at 5.30am and tried a hospital that as far as I'm aware has never been reported. The place was locked up tighter than Fort Knox and was rigged up so set off a couple of PIR's. It was fun playing hide and seek in the pitch black though!

    By the time I arrived I was struggling to stay awake but driving past and catching a glimpse of this lovely house, the excitement kicked in. I was gutted to find the place in such a state when I got in. When I arrived I had a nose about, as I walked upstairs I could see the police parked up across the road with the speed gun when I was less than half way up. Spent a while snapping downstairs, kept checking to see if they had gone, got the shots I wanted, still there! After about 12 fails on my trip I decided failure wasn't an option, I was going up. I slithered up the last few steps on my belly through broken glass until I could stand up away from the window. I doubt I would have been spotted, but when you are that tired and determined you get a bit paranoid!

    The first pic was the last one I took, got spotted by an angry neighbour so didn't stick around. For a respectable looking chap he had a few choice words to fire at me.

    It's really gone downhill. Such a shame. Thanks for posting.

    That's quite a nice place, as Mockingbird states, it needs a good tidy-up. It's worth a refurbishment, I think. The bathroom and kitchen could do with new units. I like the windows in this house.

    I've looked at two previous posts and noted a few changes since then, the chairs have been moved, no plywood on the kitchen window, the aerial shots of the house have been shifted. Would this have been done by explorers trying to tidy-up or other.

    Still looks a very worthwhile visit & you have captured it well!
    As others have said if u look at the early youtube vids its gone downhill quick but then I guess thats what happens when stuff becomes "public knowledge".
    Id love a look round here but its so damn far away so thats another one Ill prob miss out on ;-(
