    A sad indictment on how we treat the the 'eccentric' or persons who do not fit easily into our compartmentalised modern society. I suspect that the old albums full of black and white photographs will hold the complete life story of John and his family and tell us why he lived his days, as he did. However; please do not drop the 'mental' cap onto John's head, he deserves far better. I have come across a number of 'Johns' in my life and it was always circumstances around family, debt or employment that started the initial 'problem' or 'conflict' - not mental health issues. Although in a few of cases the person's make-up, life style etc., did mean that eventually their mental state played a major role during the remainder of their lives.

    Lovely report BG and a beautiful 'memorial' to John!

    I understand what you are saying.
    I have other stories of him & his mental decline but didnt want to give any more info that may give away location.
    Sadly I know he has a living daughter & also that some things of value were removed ( a couple of grandfather clocks for sure) but there seems little care for his personal possessions that are of no monetary value! I even found his complete Cv in there!

    Thanks Gropping! I did 2 visits here as I wasn't happy with a lot of pics so prob spent 2 hours in here. Was taking 3 or 4 of most the downstairs pics with different lightpainting techniques. was annoying cos the slightest movement would rock a precariously placed tripod!
