A wonderful explore......

Yesterday saw myself, son Callum and fellow explorers Keith Shaw and Erick Grundahl, visit the beautiful Rougham Hall which is just outside the Suffolk town of Bury St. Edmunds.

This wonderful ruin was originally built in the 15th Century by the Agnew family, but during the Second World War, it was hit by a stray German bomb which was meant for an airbase that lays very close by. The force of the explosion apparently shattered the foundations of the Hall and floors and walls came crashing down. Obviously, it was never rebuilt and was left to the devices of Mother Nature - what a glorious job she is doing.

The full set is on both Flickr and in it's own gallery on the website which you can find by clicking HERE

Have a little taster of what we saw below:
