Woolton Hall, aka Katie's House - January 2015

Behind a wall in the land of the Beatles, narrrrrr - the land of the Quarrymen lies the latest urbex tourist hot spot.

Built in 1704 with stone from the local Woolton Quarry, this building has been used as a home, hotel, school, club. This Grade I listed building now sits in development hell awaiting sale or a visit from Derek Acorah.

A quick phone call to the caretaker, Mr Hibbert, is all that is needed for the run of the place these days and meeting him at the gate he led us up the icy drive to the house. A number of photographers were already pottering about the place including a bloody fashion shoot.

"are you supposed to be here" said the up his own arse "professional".

Well it was going to be one of those days so a quick potter round and we left, I've agreed with the very kind caretaker to pop back to get some photos another time.

- It is a little different....

  1. Great photos. Shame you couldn't do a proper explore. What a legend this guy is for being so courteous. Could you by chance email me his number lucynation81@gmail.com. I really want to get down there before the situation changes. A nice easy one to ease me in!

  2. Re-vist sounds good to me my friend. The "Professional" was in need of several swift kicks to the testes with big doc Martins.
