This place is incredibly difficult to find! I had to rely on grid co-ordinates from the BaR website to find it properly. As you can see, it's very overgrown

Forgotten gates

Once beyond the gates, all I could see was darkness. A modern spruce plantation has starved the area of light.

There you are

Although very well built, the structure is starting to collapse after several decades of neglect

I'm not sure if bodies are still interred here, but this was the only obviously disturbed and emptied grave

The mausoleum is very trashed:(

I had to go a bit nuts with the HDR because of the strange light in here, sorry!

Wow, loving that place. Nice find, though it's a shame to see it so trashed. Just wish there was more stuff like that round these parts!

Excuse my ignorance, but what's BaR?

Great photos. You should get busy with the chainsaw around the building. What is it with you and security animals? Sheep, cows.. :p

Brilliant, what a great place so out of the way. Shame it's deteriorating so much and been trashed like that. :(

Very nice. :)

Liking the attitude of the owner - I can't be bothered to fix it so I'll hide it with trees! There are mine buildings in Weardale hidden away just like this....

I think this building would look amazing lit up at night. Different coloured gels and light creeping through the trees.

I remember you telling me about this place!!!
It actually looks better than I thought, to be honest I thought it would be a rusty gate and a plaque :D
I think I might go soon to have a look, do I have to walk through the cows?
Will I have to use my tripod to shooo them away like the birds in the stairwell at Cornhill?
