Nice place, but I like the Oakley Court in Berkshire.. It’s where many Hammer films (and the Rocky Horror Picture Show) were filmed. It’s a hotel now!
I’m a fan of Gothic Horror (and a fan of RHPS), so it’s where I would go!
Hi Doc ...
Nursling was built as a manor house starting in late 1500s and completed in 1600s.
The bldg Drew posted is now the admin. bldg for a retirement complex on the grounds.
Nice area still somewhat country. I took a climb up the stairs in one of those towers but couldn’t get to the top due to obstruction I think. I wasn’t supposed to go there but did anyway and the stairs were original cept of course for some repairs.
The inside wouldn’t scare anyone but the restoration was very well done and original things from 15 and 1600s still well in place. The flooring in billiard room is original as are the small doors and paneling.
The one scary thought as I went down the longish corridor to the billiard room was, gee.
Imagine if for whatever reason you had to walk through there in those years with a candle for light, and there was a storm outside and hard rain pelting the windows and the shadow cast by the candle. And it would not have been a warm walk either.
In the movies we often see a gazillion candles lighting up rooms or a few in a hallway.
But the things candles were made of was very expensive even for the wealthy. And then there was always the threat of fire. So that corridor wouldn’t have been blazing with light on a dark winter night.
