Barons Hill 2

Posted by
grouser (Ludlow, United Kingdom) on 29 August 2015 in Architecture.

I have posted pictures of this ruin before. The last time I visited it it was quite easy to get to. Since then the drive at one end has been deliberately blocked and coming from the other end it is now so overgrown with low hanging branches I had to almost crawl in several places. I suspect I won't be able to get there again. A shame as despite its state the enormous decaying house has a certain majestic presence

A great image...yes sad to see vegetation taking over the building...The whole place looks like a haunted area !!!
May be if you happen to go there after twilight hours, you might encounter a ghost or two :)))))))))))))))))))))))

Yes it does appear to have a presence, so sad it will disappear under all the growth soon.

I see that there was a proposal to convert into 'luxury apartments' back in 2009 . . but concerns were raised about where the bats might then live . .

That place is so interesting! And b&w gives it the impenetrable timeless feel that screams for story telling. Very effective compo and capture.

A real documentary of how nature overcomes all obstacles - even majestic buildings! The B&W suits it well

It must have been a spectacular house at one time. It is sad that it was left to ruin. The overgrowth is amazing. A fabulous black and white image. I love old abandoned buildings.

@Elaine Hancock: abandoned after a fire. The owners well heeled enough to move to another of their properties I think
