WARNING TO EXPLORERS: THIS FOLLY IS CLOSED, LOCKED AND ALARMED!
This picture and others of Witley have gained a lot of attention over the past year or so.
At the time that these photos were taken, the ballroom was NOT locked. You will see I don't have pictures from Lutyens boathouse or the other underground room as both WERE locked at the time.
Since my visit, I have been informed by a number of sources that the ballroom is now also locked and alarmed. I don't need to point out that breaking into a locked premises is breaking and entering and is illegal; it's also against the generally accepted urban exploration rules (somewhere here: www.forbidden-places.net/why.php).
Due to the above, please don't contact me for access details as I won't provide them.
I also suggest against visiting Witley as you will have a long walk around the lake only to be confronted by a padlock. If you get spotted wandering about private properly with bolt croppers, expect to be arrested.
Lastly: These photos are copyright, and you must contact me if you wish to use them.
This is a room under a lake in Witley Park. It's over 100 years old. I've never seen anything like it before.
