Claremont House is a large, stone built former dwelling and outbuildings, standing in grounds of approximately 1.4 hectares of land.

The building was last used as a social club for employees of the nearby Hepworths Refractories, but has been vacant for many years.
Up the stairs into the ruined outbuilding.

The floors and roof have collapsed. Shame, as there was what looks quite a promising kitchen on the other side of this.

An empty outbuilding.

It was built in 1895. Today it is boarded up, and structurally dodgy.

I love looking at places like this. The upstairs has collapsed in here, leaving the bedroom door opening into nowhere. As I inched towards the hallway, where the floor has gone completely, things started to shift, and I got out very quickly. I was unable to see if there were any stairs, or what the other rooms were like.

Remains of plaster moulding is visable on the only bit of ceiling left.

I love these forgotten houses where once people lived, and entertained, and now they are one storm away from collapse.

This is officially the most dangerous building I have been in to date. Scooby Doo would have been proud.
