Description

You can see this manor from across the river in Springbank park so when I found it on the other side I was not disappointed. Garbage everywhere and it looks like some kids made a dummy to hang out this window. There is also a large barn/garage on the property. Pictures of the interior are to follow.

"It is a familiar site for Byron residents both past and present. Just across the river from Springbank Park, the charming Victorian-era home known simply as The Cedars is a sight to behold on the banks of the Thames. In the 1880's, The Cedars was built as an athletic club complete with docks, rowboats and canoes. The athletic club was then converted to a summer home when the property was purchased by Herbert A. Sabine in 1906. The Cedars was passed down from generation to generation until it was finally sold to Drewlo Holdings in 1978."

The end of an era. This house was burned down tonight. It’s still ablaze right now I hear.

This place is so trashed now and be careful of the needles in the kitchen.

We decided to explore it at night, scariest explore of our lives. It's upsetting to see it in such decay.

So sad to see how completely trashed this place has become. In comparing what I saw to some of the earlier galleries, my heart broke.

This place is fantastic! Fortunately the aforementioned security did not show up, wonder if they still have security at all? Sad to see the earlier galleries though - this place is covered in more graffiti than ever. The barn/outbuilding has also collapsed now or was torn down.

I concur and she seems to find them shortly after they were on here. She does a good job with it, but the only negative is that anyone & their dog can watch it. Luckily some scrapper from Tennessee probably won't venture up to London.

There's no way Tikitrex finds all those places on her own. Someone feeds her locations or she is already on here.

& I think TikiTrex can thank this site.
