    Default Old Manor Remains near Grantham, Lincs March 2018


    1. The History
    The history of the place is on my previous report HERE.

    2. The Explore
    Revisit is better than no visit so popped by this place again. It's a superb little gem. This time it was cold and there was snow on the ground so it have a much colder feel to the place. It was also late in the day so the light was also a bit in short supply. Got a decent enough set to merit another report.

    3. The Pictures

    On with the pictures. The first thing you come to is this superb and rather odd statue:

    And on to the main part of the explore:

    Note the butler's call bell on the left of the wall:

    Door to the main coach entrance:

    Seen better days has this roof:

    This wing is in reasonable condition:

    Compared to the one opposite:

    It's a lot less over-grown in winter:

    Back inside and an old sink:

    The roof to this corner room has totally gone:

    And back to that unwanted modern-art sculpture:

    A truly enchanting little place:

    Bye bye magical little place:

    Very nice set Hughie, once again! Shame the inevitable is happening as nature takes its course. This place was really striking in my younger days. Your 'odd' statue is a rendition in stone of a very early 'fable', which at the moment unfortunately, I cannot dig up the reference to. The lead lined wooden sink was a common sight in stable tack rooms of this period - save the risk of damaging a porcelain sink when metal tack, such as bridle bits etc, were being cleaned. And as Smiler stated, that last shot - fab; but as you will have probably already found, those 'after thoughts' can sometimes be stunning. Thanks for the memories.

    And thank you for that really interesting insight Dirus. Not much info about this place on the web. Ironic it burnt down, was rebuilt then forcefully destroyed. A real loss.
