Where to start with this place. I found a photo of the entrance hall on Flickr at random whilst researching places for my Scotland trip, and instantly knew I needed to find it, and needed to see it. After a good amount of thorough and diligent searching I managed to track it down, and as you can imagine I was elated.
Fast forward a month and we are heading to our hotel for the night which I had booked conveniently close to where the property was. After checking in that afternoon we decided to give the place a bit of a recce to see what we would be dealing with, with the plan in place to do it at first light the next morning. Walking up the long muddy drive however I was in for a shock - the lower levels of the house were totally boarded up. I knew from the photos I had seen that back in the summer it was totally unboarded so I was a bit disheartened. However all that changed when we found a way in. In the dying light of the afternoon, given that the place was pretty well boarded up so torchlight wouldn't be an issue we decided to just go for it.
That determination was pretty short lived however when I discovered that my torch has accidentally turned itself on in my bag at some point in the day, which gave me a very short time to get the shots I wanted - the torch eventually ran out after about forty minutes, and I was gutted, but I really want to get back here in proper light and shoot the bits I missed and the rest of it better.
It looks as if there is work going on in there currently, as a few things had changed from the photos I saw previously. There were worklights scattered around and a power pack under the central skylight, and other builders stuff dotted around.
So apologies for some of the poorly-lit photos below, I did the best I could with a rapidly fading torch - you may notice the lighting get gradually worse and worse as you scroll down ha.
The last shot was the final one I took before my light totally died
Cheers for looking!
I like car graveyards.
