    Default Council blunder house


    Tiny bit of history:

    This was once the most expensive house built in Britain, costing 25million, as lovely as it looks from the outside this house should never have been built. It was only built due to a council blunder with allowed the build to continue without planning permission.

    The explore

    So the explore began with a quick scout of the area, once we located a good way to scale the 12ft fence, the climb began, slipping and a near miss with my manhood on the spiked fence we was in, we headed straight for a way in.
    inside the house itself is very empty and looks like a few raves and parties have been held inside,

    below are a few photos from the explore

    Big Credit to urban loan wolf for the find

    Nice one but not worth 25 million. Seems to have a lot of pools.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.
