Photo-a-Day (Monday, 3rd March, 2014)
Where is Dracula??
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.
Very moody. Very well taken photo.
very dramatic in black and white and quite sad too
Very atmospheric & monochrome is just what was needed. Great photo.
And what a place. Needs to be saved.
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.
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.
Well said Ron.
Get the place knocked down and build some modern houses.
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.
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.
Love Monochrome....great photo and yes somewhat spooky.....cheers!!!
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 ?
Well put Den,i`m with you on this
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.
