This is the beautiful stained glass at the rear top of the main staircase in an abandoned stately home. The images and depictation in it are to show the industry of the town it sits in around the time that the home was built.

Absolutely stunned at this building… and your photography!
How the hell do you get access to such incredible locations where you take your amazing photographic artwork???… and I MEAN… “ARTWORK”!!! I am envious!
Well done Mate!
Thanks very much for your comment, it is indeed a very nice building which lends itself well to photography :)
As for how i get access, its basically just a case of finding your way in, though i have a strict rule never to cause damage in doing so.

Gorgeous capture of old beauty!
I must ask, why doesn’t the state renovate this and makeit into a museum or give tours through the old house/college?I know it would cost millions probably, but if it’s in a greatlocation to attract tourists, might be worth it.Also, briefly, do you know the history? How old it is?I guess if there were no NO TRESPASSING signs up, youcould go in, and even if there were signs up, and you gotcaught, probably all they could do is tell you to leave.Obviously, squatters have been living in there before you came.I once knew of a single mother and her two daughters whotook up residence in part of a huge abandoned hotel on Jekyl Island.They lived there for many years, exactly how long, no one knows,and they wouldn’t tell either when finally evicted by the renovators.
Vonney, thanks :)
There was actually plan to renovate this, and i do know a bit of the history of the place.
Like the High Royds info journal post i made recently i will make one about this site too, so keep an eye out for journal posts from me. I will make this place the next i write up
Wonderful. Can hardly wait to read it.Sometimes due to work I don’t gethere to this site everyday, but it willbe the first thing I look for when I dolog on.
I’ll drop you a bubblemail with a link to it once it is done :)
Thanks a million.
nice to see photographs of old rundown buildings before they die good work
super capture… it looks almost in good nick unless you look too close on this one, must have been a magnificent place in its day.
fabulous photo !
Wonderfull work, I must say I think your photographs are very good and also you are keeping valuable documentation of houses etc that might be gone completly one day.
Thanks again Maria :)
I wonder why no one ever salvaged this…
I wish they had, it now has loads of stone holes in it :(
