The famous 'eyesore' next to Temple Meads station.
Visited many times throughout 2011 and 2012.
Visited in January 2012. Not a manor, but the farm attached. Quite a large site too. Always worth a little look if you get thrown out of Pyestock which is just down the road!
Visited solo in June 2012.
This building was being painted in the week we visited as part of the 'See No Evil' project on Nelson Street.
Visited in August 2012.
Visited in September 2012.
Visited in November 2012.
Otherwise known as 'Colin's Barn'.
Having not known much about the state of this place prior to arrival, I had no idea what to expect. That being said, it didn't disappoint. It's a rather vast place and even has a slight asylum feel to it, which makes it that bit more interesting!
The Hoarder's House (What's Left Of)
We briefly stopped here en route to Leicester for a forum meet up in April 2013, to see what was left of the place. The answer is not much... It's bee stripped completely, apart from a few cars and a cheeky scarecrow. There are signs saying CCTV is monitoring the site, but if there is, it's the most hidden system I've ever seen!
Having seen lots of people do it, I thought we should jump abaord the bangwagon and see it for ourselves!
It's safe to say that quite a lot has changed since the first reports starting going up, and the demolition teams have been on the place big time.
Despite the amount of coverage of this one, it still looked very special and unique, so a visit was on the cards. Once there, it certainly didn't disappoint, and offered something interesting around every corner. The sheer size of the building surprised me too, I must say!
Sitting in a quiet area of this lovely county is this gem. Whilst the site it's on is still very much in use, this building hasn't been touched for a while and is currently lived in by a family who are looking after the place.
