Some pics would be great Roger. Sounds like a bit of negativity has been surrounding the place for a while. It needs clearing and refreshing, which is just what is being done. Clearing away the mess, painting and cleaning it all up will help I bet.

Sounds like bad was attracting bad there, it's a tough job, but once it is smartened up a lot of that negative energy will have dissipated. ;-)

Yep would be good to see a pic or two! :)

It loads it as it is on here, so if you want it to be smaller you'd have to make it smaller before uploading.

What I usually do is use Photobucket and that way I can choose a different size.

Now I can see that place looks spooky!!
What an amazing building! You certainly have a project there though, but all I can say is you must be a very able builder and would love to see the finished pics.

I can see those bricks too, they do look Victorian or by Brunel! Ever investigated the history of them, or what went on there? You could be on a major site of industrial heritage, what amazing architecture that is. Maybe the house was used by one of the Industrial lords of the Victorian times, some of them were pretty despotic and all sorts of tragedies happened at sites where workers had hard lives and were very expendable, could be navvies haunting the area, foremen, or the people who lived in the house.

Would be great to hear the history of it, you may find stuff in the deeds.

Thanks for posting :smile:

Some history
The first mention of the house was in 1776 not 1765 as I mentioned earlier
The land is situated at the head of what was a tidal lake,sadly and thanks very much plymouth council
It was filled in and a park was created,immediately to the rear of the property is a redundant bowling green
I believe I may be wrong about the tunnel as I found something about an original wooden bridge sitting on granite plinths
But why would someone go to all the trouble of cutting and forming all those arched blocks
In those days they would cut them with a hammer and chisel
We found loads of off cast granite pieces
At first we saved every bit,but there was so much we soon got bored of that
Some of the cut pieces we found must weigh around two tons
When we cleared the land of all the weeds we found one small holly tree,and we piled all the saved granite around it
Il have to put some Christmas lights on it soon
The house is called a villa because it used to overlook the water
At one point there was a dairy on the land
Horse and cart style
There's also a piece of woodland that the railway workers used to us as a short cut to what was five meadow road,now north road west
There's a wall in that road and you can see where they bricked up the gate
When I get the time I'm gonna reinstate the path and gate
As for the house,well it's a major project,but I just think of itas one flat at a time
Otherwise I'd get lost in it

Brilliant! Gosh a lot of history there... and lots of mystery too. Makes you wonder why the granite blocks are there, and as you say, why make those arches. Remains of a railway bridge or viaduct perhaps? Over the watery area?

Any chance of giving a location? Even roughly?
