Couldn't find much history on this place, however this fire sustained severe fire damage during an arson attack that occured at the site in July 2017 resulting in most of the building being an open ruin. We guessed that the building was last used in 1990s/2000s.

During our explore we encountered that the site that the building occupies we discover that the building was extremely vegetated. The former driveway that used to lead to this once luxury had been taken over by plants, nettles, brambles, long grass, pushes, small trees and there was a large tree log that had fallen over. After surpassing the masses of overgrown land we had finally made it to the front of this house. Upon arrival we immediately enter the old house. Inside the building we see large amounts of decay and due to the 2017 fire see here for information about the fire there was no roof to the building and so meant that the building was to some extend outdoors with piles of bricks and rubble, upper floorboards turned into charcoal, staircase covered over with excessive amounts of rubble. Most of the rooms had fully opened up to the outside and were filled with mounds of rubble with pieces of old rusty and burnt furniture scattered across the floor.

Here are some of the pictures we took whilst inside and around the building:

The old living room to the old house where a fireplace can be seen. We believed that the burnt wall in the bottom left of the photo was a wall that separated two walls that was burnt down by the 2017 fire.

This picture was taken inside one of the old rooms that had become outdoors due to the walls and roof burning down during the fire.

This body of water in this image is not a pond like it looks if you look carefully towards the back of the photo this is actually an old swimming pool as shown by the tiles at the back.
