Crewe Hall apocalypse

Crewe Hall apocalypse
Crewe Hall in Cheshire silhouetted by bright sunshine. The Hall, now a hotel, was built in the seventeenth century for Sir Randolph Crewe. Damaged by a fire in 1866, it was renovated by EM Barry (son of the architect who had rebuilt the Houses of Parliament). It stopped being a home in the 1930s and during the second world war was a training camp and prisoner of war camp. Post war it was used as offices by pharmaceutical companies before falling empty in the early 1990s. It became a hotel in 1998. It is a rather fine building (even in silhouette)
