The building is not at all visible from the main road so it had been left forgotten for many years. The land around about is very desolate of any sort of protection from the prevailing winds and the weather is starting to take its toll on the building; a chimney pot sits precariously on the roof and may fall to the ground with the slightest of wind from the wrong direction, and large cracks are evident in the internal walls with one floor in an upper room completely fallen. The house would have been quite grand in its day with evidence of a leathery red runner on the staircase and thick carved leather stair rods to hold the carpet in place. The remains of a large kitchen range still sits in the chimney breast with water still in the boiler and several glass bottles from the Barnard Castle Brewery are scattered throughout the site.

Latest update: More 360 degree places added!. Loads of movies recently added in the Weardale area including Groverake, Skears and Frazers Hush mines.
