This hall ain't far from me at all but never got around to visiting it. I was at a loose end so had a quick look around, a nice relaxed visit. It's fairly stripped but has some nice features still. Hainford hall is a typical Georgian house, the house consisted of kitchens, cellars, reception room and eleven bedrooms upstairs. It was taken over by the military in the Second World War. Like many manor houses taken over by the military they were left in not to great a state. And many laid derelict or demolished. The hose was left derelict in 1948. A breakers yard moved into the grounds and I think parts were stored in the hall as well. The breakers yard was closed several years back and the house was put up for auction, a huge amount of work is needed here. I remember when I first got a car I use to go here for parts. You were pointed to the make of your car and you had to clamber over them and take your own parts off and then take it t the cash till.

beautiful old house, such a shame. I'm surprised nobody's nicked those panelled hardward doors, they must be worth a bob or two. I was coveting them.

Those long corridors, so quiet without servants bustling to and fro.
