What I learn't today.... Do NOT wear shorts, whatever the weather and buy an OS map of the area... Do NOT rely on directions by memory.

Also, I got covered in wet tar/non-drying paint!!

Anyway, history; http://www.ruperra.org.uk/

Tar very much for these gorgeous pictures.
Of all my favorite places to visit,number one on the list has to be derelict old mansions... this grand old seat certainly fits that bill down to a tee,what a wonderful place!
Somewhat sad though; that this great edifice is almost certainly never going to be restored in anyway,atleast I assume so (hope I am wrong)
But as it stands now,it is a truly romantic gem of the forever diminishing stock of great aristocratic seats.
Love the shots... many thanks.:)

Its privately owned by the people living in the house next to it. They use the stable block too.
They are not very approachable either & dont take kindly to anyone going in.
Its a real shame they have something like that & are happy to let it crumble
