Wood is a feature throughout the house. Ceilings and walls and floors are panelled with wood; most of the wall panelling has been ripped out.
There is a grand window looking out from the landing area, this has been smashed, as has every other window in the building. On the second floor there is an antique stained glass church window, inlaid into a wall. This has also been vandalised.

The vandalism is causing water damage. In the living area a large bag of water hangs suspended from the ceiling. On our second visit this bag was in the process of bursting. Water had flooded the living area and was seeping through the walls into surrounding rooms.

It is tempting when seeing a house left like this to think about taking something. It is smashed up and open to the elements and further petty vandalism. Its features will probably get completely destroyed by vandalism. This house does belong to somebody though. It was somebody's home and it is likely that the owners are still paying for it. This home was somebody's dream, and that dream is being destroyed. I would not like to be part of its further destruction.
