Thornseat Lodge is on the border of the Yorkshire moors, built in 1855 as a shooting and hunting lodge, it was converted to a childrens home in the 1830s and remained as such for 50 years. Apparently vacated in the 80’s it has been left to rot since.

The building is one of the most dodgy that I have been in, there is no access to the upper floor with all of the stairs rotten, a lot of the ground floor is also very rotten. This property can surly only have a few years until it collapses onto itself.
