Baron Hill Mansion - Beaumaris, Anglesey by jixxertwig This building is on the remains of the drive leading upto the mansion, just on the bridge that crosses the main road on Red Hill above Beaumaris. Originally built in 1618 for the Bulkeley family, the mansion was remodelled into the Neo-Palladian style in 1776 by the architect Samuel Wyatt. It remained the Bulkeley family home until sometime in the 1920s, when they moved to more modest accomodation and the mansion was then used for storage. When World War II broke out, the Government requisitioned it and it was used as a billet for Polish soldiers. The Polish soldiers were unhappy with the large, cold rooms and decided to start a small fire, so that they would be rehoused in more comfortable accommodation. The resulting blaze destroyed a large part of the main building’s interior. The soldiers were rehoused - but into portable huts in the mansion’s grounds. The mansion has been abandoned ever since the war ended and has gradually decayed further.

Château du Lac in northern France (photograph by Alain Dejeaifve)
In the north of France, a more specific location could not be found on the web, remains a 16th century castle, one of the few reminders of that time in the region. Built on the ruins of a castle of the 13th century, this castle is a tasty mixture of Renaissance architecture extended by more common buildings. The castle is surrounded by a large wooded park entirely on a small hill overlooking the village, the valley and a small lake. It is attracting interest because it is of significant size and is an almost unique architectural example.
Château du Lac was built in 1314 and suffered from many evils since then. It literally survived and lingered through time. Victim of fire, military occupation and now sheer abandonment, it is remaining feebly alive in an advanced decaying state…
It has been left behind by its current owners, leaving it to decay. With no restoration for several decades, the roof begins to collapse and the castle has slowly deteriorated into its current state.
