Kestrel Court was built in the mid 1800’s as a home for the intended bishop of the area. Designed by a renowned architect in the Gothic revival style, the residence still has many of the original features. The architect went to great lengths while designing the property, even detailing the catches for the windows and doors. Incredibly most of these survive, however the building now stands unoccupied and left to fall into a state of disrepair. Original paint schemes, fire places and staircases are now left to decay.
The first stop-off on a weekend tour saw Mars Lander, Sshhhh…, Lucky Pants and myself arrive at this impressive looking building. The hazardous journey was worth the effort, and I really enjoyed this visit. The building was full of surprises and the company was excellent as always. It was a shame to see one or two parts of the building had fallen into a state of disrepair, but most has been well preserved.
