A very decayed farm house somewhere in rural Belgium, Maison le grand georges. The previous owners left or departed leaving all their possessions behind some 30 years ago.
– Waverley was purchased by Florence Nightingale’s family, and she visited the mansion frequently. It became a Red Cross hospital during the First World War, and after World War II it was converted into apartments for retired people.
Had a great explore the other day at GT Manor in Oxfordshire. A fabulous old manor house in a bit of a state but looks as though the owners are doing some work on the property to hopefully bring it back to it’s former glory.
The property is partly lived in and when we got to the house had a bit of a shock to see the owner in the garden washing his car. So we had to make a little detour and come in through the back way 🙂
From my recent explore of FH Manor. I always take hundreds of photos and only ever get around to using a handful, so I have quite the collection of photos taking up three hard drives. Sure, in raining days months or maybe years I will pull out an oldie and do some work on it for showing. But, occasionally I like to throw them all together for a little video slide show.
I kept the photos in order of our explore so you can appreciate the house as we explored through each room. There was a number of rooms I never took photos of as there was nothing interesting in them. So if your counting the rooms it’s actually a fair bit bigger.
Nash Point Lighthouse was built after the passenger steamer FROLIC was wrecked with heavy loss of life in 1830.
The low light was abandoned early this century and the high light was modernised and painted white. In place of the fixed light a new first order catadioptric lens was installed which gives a white and red group flashing.
