The front just about standing! don't be deceived! 3/10 for this.

  6. HORSE HALL

    HISTORY:- The hall was built in the 1560s for the Winstanley family of Winstanley; the Winstanley family were lords of the manor since at least 1252 and may have been responsible for building the moat on the site.The Winstanleys owned the hall until 1596, when the estate was sold to James Bankes, a London goldsmith and banker.The Hall has three storeys and has a date stone with a date of 1584, but this is not in situ so may not provide an accurate date for the construction of the house. Extra blocks were added in the 17th and 18th centuries. Further and extensive alterations were made in 1811-19 by Lewis Wyatt in a Jacobean style. He moved the entrance to the left flank of the hall and replacing the original entrance with a window. The final additions to the hall were made in 1843 when an extra wing was added. To the south, on lands belonging to the hall, is a small stone building which was used to house bears that provided entertainment for the hall's guests.The Bankes family retained ownership of the hall until the 21st century when it was sold for private development. The hall had been kept in good condition until the 1960s when habitation stopped. As the building decayed and the cost of maintaining Winstanley Hall was too much for the family it was sold on. It was intended to develop the hall into private flats, however refurbishment was held up due to the council withholding planning permission. The interior is now in some disrepair. THE EXPLORE:- easily access to the grounds but the main hall is very dangerous with most of the floors and ceilings fallen through. nice little wander though but it did have warning signs of loose guard dogs. I took my chance and none seen. The blue room! Horse fountain

  14. RICE AND THREE!

  15. RICE AND THREE!

    THE HISTORY:- Until about the 1880s, Joseph Heap with Joseph Heap & Sons Ltd., owned its own vessels, which were known as the Diamond H Line after their house flag. These ships sailed between Liverpool and Australia, via Rangoon and the East Indies. The firm has had several changes of ownership but was still fully operational until 1988 when it transferred to a new site in Regent Road, Liverpool. The Pownall Street site was still partially operational until 2005. The building was due to be demolished until it received Grade II listed statue in 2014 from Historic England. It's entry on the list describes it as being: "...a good example of an early and mid-C19 warehouse complex adapted in the late-C19 for a single unified use as a rice processing and storage site; its austere styling being characteristic of the C18 and C19 warehouse buildings that have played a significant role in contributing to Liverpool's World Heritage Site status. The building displays visible alterations, made since its construction, which illustrates the changing technology which became improved over the years. There were plans in 2014 to convert the building into luxury apartments as part of a £130 million luxury residential development, but it was criticised by Gill Darley, writing for the Architects' Journal who described the plans as "façadism". This was largely because the developers had wanted to pull out of the redevelopment if they were forced to keep the original interior. In 2017 the site was taken over by the developer Inhabit who disclosed that a planning agreement had been reached and that the work to convert the building into luxury apartments was to be started. THE VISIT:- Got the heads up this was open and had a few reports it was death on a stick. (it's not safe!) If you stick to the taped off areas all stone your fine. i did feel very uneasy and not very safe while i was inside so took as many pics as i could and left. Although it's quite a good derp. Nice derp but dangerous 6/10
