History is a little vague on this one. Tucked in the woods behind a Premier Inn is a the truly ruined remains of a house that used to be part of 'Windyridge Farm'.

Allegedly they were redeveloping it at some point years ago, but there was a fire, and it was simply left abandoned.

Nothing to groundbreaking here, but pretty cool for something that is on edge of a very built up area, but so well hidden away.

Nice find mate! Great set of pics, really sharp and detailed. I can see a few bars that look like scaffolding or something, has there been some attempt to keep standing? Hard to tell because it is so overgrown.

OK so I know a little about this place it belonged at one time in the 90's to the Gatwick Manor hotel which is now the Premier Inn. Its one of the farm buildings that was not converted into the hotel (the barns were used) in the mid 90's my Mum worked at the hotel and the house was derelict but in much better shape and there was a 9 hole golf course to. Golfers complained of a smell for some weeks and staff went to the house they found body parts in the house in bin liners. It turned out that they were cows chopped up and put in bin bags and no one ever found out why. Since then its been left to rot and is on part of the land reserved for the 2nd Runway at Gatwick if it goes ahead which I would guess is why no one has restored it.
