This was another little mooch with CP, the following was pinched off the web:-

Salston Manor is a grade II listed building, it was previously a hotel however the owners sold the building in 2008 and the new owner doesn’t seem to have made any progress on his initial plans to turn the building into a 76 roomed care home with beneficial community links. The local councils have tried to lobby Roger Young (the owner) into starting his project as soon as possible so not to lose some of the character that the building has; and so not to incur more costs. There is still no evidence of action. The manor house has around 30 grand bedrooms, with wallpapered function rooms and large wooden floors throughout.

The floors are dodgy upstairs where the metal theives have stripped the copper, there is substantial dry rot in the building as the slates are being stripped and some rooms are open to the elements. The far end of the building has partially collapsed so if anyones going to visit be carefull when opening the first floor corrider door. You can see the crack in one of the shots near the ceiling area, anyway on with the shots :lol:

Well hello everybody, this is my very first post on Derelictplaces. I just wanted to say that I visited Salston Manor today and sadly there was a huge lock on the front door and all other entrances were boarded off. However I did get to take some photos of the swimming pool. I spoke briefly with a lady who told me fifty years ago she used to attend the New Years Ball at Salston in her childhood. She mentioned it had been an important part of Ottery St Mary. I shall look forward to discovering other places of interest in the future. Thank you to Onmyown for these great photographs.

We had a quick trip out today, never ventured upstairs I would suggest is a death trap. My Jack Russell had a great time chasing a rabbit outside all around the 3 baths next to the skips. Rabbit won. This one now looks like a collapse all project from the inside downwards. I guess the builders will just gut everything bar the outside walls. Tricky to see anything internal worth keeping. This one looks better from the outside.
