History (Courtesy of the Whitehaven News)-The Grade II-listed Kirklinton Hall, originally built in 1660 and further extended in 1875, was once an impressive country house, then a hotel, nightclub and casino.

The house was used by the RAF during the Second World War before retired farmers Doris and Willie Hay bought it in 1948 and transformed it into a nightclub and hotel in the sixties.

The hall fell victim to a fire, leaving its interior badly scarred. The roof was also taken off and the inside walls demolished.

It was put up for sale in 2002 for £350k http://property.timesonline.co.uk/tol/life_and_style/property/article1181043.ece

Cobland, otherwise known as Derbyshire lol.
I love seeing old stately homes on here, even though it's in a perilous and derelict state, you can see the craftmanship of the building. Some beautiful stone work there. Another place I like.

Excellent pics mate, I like this. :)

It's a crying shame to see such a wonderfully expansive manor like this in such condition. :(
