We discovered this rust-bucket of a bike in the surrounding woods . . .
It isn't the easiest place to find - actually, it was almost impossible to find but maybe we didn't take the most direct of routes. On with the pics . . .
The exterior is now being supported by large beams.
We decided against trying to get inside - there were a couple of broken windows at ground level, but the interior looked totally wrecked and too dangerous even for us (intrepid explorers that we are!)
This was undoubtedly once a magnificent house and such a waste that is has ended up like this.
Deeply saddened that this decay has been allowed to occur on such a beautiful building, rich in history.
