   Trentham Hall is one of the “lost country houses” of England- magnificent historical manor houses that have fallen into disrepair or been demolished. Trentham Hall, on the fringes of Stoke-on-Trent in Staffordshire, had an extensive history as an Augustinian Priory, a convent, and housed the Dukes of Sutherland. (no, I don’t know where they live now. Maybe they are wandering aimlessly around Stoke peering into ceramics shoppes). All that remains is the garden, parts of buildings, and the parish church. 
   I am quite sorry this house was Lost but the overgrowth in this palatial archway is the most gorgeous example of beautiful decay EVER! I think it is perfect just as it is. (photo Peter Juerges on flickr)

  EEEEEEEE look at this magical fairytale glen!!! This is in Betws-y-Coed (“Prayer house in the wood”), Welsh pronunciation: [ˈbɛtʊs ə ˈkɔɨd]) a little village in the Conwy valley of Conwy Borough, Wales. The town was founded around a monastery in the late sixth century. (image edwina bullock on beautyineverything.com)

   Spooky gothic ruins for those who appreciate beautiful decay. Although Rochester Castle (image is of the interior) in Rochester, Kent, southern England; is actually one of the best-preserved castles in the UK; despite its incredible antiquity. There’s been a fortification here since AD 43, although it is the keep of 1127 and the Norman castle which are seen today. The Castle Gardens were a favoured leisure area during Victorian times; and Charles Dickens asked to be buried in “the small graveyard under Rochester Castle wall”, although his wishes were ignored. I think this looks like the courtyard where the Slytherin Common Room might emerge from the dungeons.
