White made investments in the studio but left the house unattended for a long time. The Manor’s decaying interiors were photographed by Trevor Bishenden, alias TrevBish Photography, last year when it was apparent that it had been abandoned totally due to increasing humidity and wallpaper that was coming off the walls. Fortunately, Hook End has since received a fresh lease on life and is currently being saved from certain doom.

The haunted estate, which dates back to the 12th century, served as the setting for the 2017 Hollywood horror film The Lodgers, which might be enough to deter some prospective homebuyers.
