Where is Dracula??


Comment by Ellen on 3rd March 2014 at 01:07
Regarding this and yesterday's picture well done indeed,Andrew and also Anonymous for reminding us of this sad state of affairs. Many of us are interested and would like to hear news of this formerly fine and historically notable estate.


Comment by Mike (Calgary) on 3rd March 2014 at 01:54
Very moody. Very well taken photo.


Comment by kath on 3rd March 2014 at 07:11
very dramatic in black and white and quite sad too


Comment by Helen on 3rd March 2014 at 08:12
Very atmospheric & monochrome is just what was needed. Great photo.

And what a place. Needs to be saved.


Comment by jj on 3rd March 2014 at 08:33
Great photo. There's a pattern here isn't there? Owners of old historic buildings leave them to decay. Then they're "too dangerous" to leave standing. Demolish and then reap the profits of building another Tesco or such like.


Comment by Ron D on 3rd March 2014 at 09:28
Will some one please tel me what is nice about this building .It\s ugly and would cost a fortune to keep in repair .What is wrong with profit,it keeps the economy running and stops all buildings going to the dogs.


Comment by Mick on 3rd March 2014 at 12:45
Well said Ron.

Get the place knocked down and build some modern houses.


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 3rd March 2014 at 15:50
I could say ....shame on you ron D and mick ....but i had better not!!!! Well done Anomymous


Wouldnt like to visit on a cold dark night though.


Comment by Den s on 3rd March 2014 at 18:01
While we're at it, Mick why don't we knock down the Parish Church? We could build another Factory Shed just like the one on the former Cricket Field. Think of all the "Profit" that would generate, but why stop there? Why not pull down Westminster Abbey or York Minster, after all they have both been there for hundreds of years and must be well past their sell by date.


Comment by Lizzie down under on 3rd March 2014 at 19:03
Love Monochrome....great photo and yes somewhat spooky.....cheers!!!


Comment by Helen on 3rd March 2014 at 19:11
Don't worry Den, some people have no imagination, they would demolish
anything..that didn't look modern.
This building in the right hands would make wonderful..I hate to use the word..apartments. Sort it out, cut down the undergrowth etc...people would pay good money for a home like that.... & keep the ecomomy of this country growing...by the way is there another country that bases its ecomomy on building houses ?? I wonder ?


Comment by Barry C on 4th March 2014 at 19:12
Well put Den,i`m with you on this


Comment by Ellen on 4th March 2014 at 20:07
Agreed Den.It seems to be the trend these days to create structures that are bland and featureless,rather than building for the long term. Little wonder that many of these modern buildings last for much less time and are less pleasing aesthetically. We are all the losers from this short sightedness.
