Theres not a lot to see given its fenced off for repairs and refurbishment, but worth a visit given the history, and has much to potentially offer once the works are completed.

Visiting this ruin depends on what you want. It is a shell but it has been in my life for 72 years. A lot of histoty there.

Admittedly we returned here to find it surrounded by a fence now, but on our first visit we was able to wander around inside the walls, shame to see yet another grand building slowly disappear. Good views from hill top.

A classic example of what happens to wonderful buildings without the protection listing now gives them. This once splendid house is a shell only, having been stripped of its period features (fireplaces, panelling etc) for sale abroad, mainly America, then its roof removed to escape...More

Surrounded by wire fencing, it's no longer possible to enter into the house itself. It's a good job as it's reputedly unsafe, but you can look through the fencing and see that there's not really anything worth looking at anyway - shame.
