A Victorian country estate with a castle-style mansion. Deteriorated after being unoccupied from 1959 when it had been a hotel. Demolished for residential housing in 1960's. There are some remains to be seen as in CJO's photos below, and other walling, but no trig elements to see.

SU31 T259 FLAGSTAFF. Reported destroyed 03/59. The only remains at GPS position looks to be the vaulted cellars which are now a car park. Plaque nearby says built 1855 and destroyed 1963.
