    I failed to see urns with ashes but did spot bottles with spirits.
    Please tell me that's a secret door behind the TV set?
    Quite surreal to find such a building. As I've mentioned before, I'd be freaking out expecting someone to be living there!
    Like all places it will be found by unsavoury characters and vandalised/robbed out. Part of the nature of what we do that.
    Awesome report.

    Full of meaty goodness.

    Yeah I didnt post any pics of urns as I find that quite dessrespectful
    Again when u first walk in you are expecting someone to be there but then notice the tell tale signs like the ivy ingress through the door behind the piano & the damp rotting the ceiling out around the bay!
    I wouldn't of posted this tbh but know there was a youtube vid went out before my post which gives much more about the location out, so yes it will be wrecked & robbed in no time which is a tragedy!
    What the hell am I doing, I mean really at my age!

    Not so much a 'secret door', rather a 'servant's door'. In the days when large houses such as this were staffed and run by those below stairs, doors that allowed free passage of the servants around the property were common place. As one can see, this door is alongside the fire place - allowing a servant to replace an empty coal scuttle or log basket with a full one, without disturbing the room's occupants!

    That's a nice find. Hope it doesn't get looted.
    Good work, as ever Mr Glynn.
