Incredible photos have emerged of one 450 year old house, that has stood the test of time.

The mansion, Berkyn Manor, in Berkshire, is still accessible, and even retains some of the features from various periods in its history.

While the third floor is now only accessible by a ladder and parts of the roof have fallen through, it is still pretty amazing to look at the photos.

The house played host to many people, including John Milton, who of course wrote Paradise Lost, and is the most famous resident to live there.

Inside the house, explorers found letters dating back to 1956, and a newspaper from 1962.

On a cold November morning (3am) we snuck through the ‘dreaded bull field’ cameras and sleeping bags in tow.

Stories flying through my head about the raging ‘guard bull’ and farmers with guns.

This night however we were lucky.

We made it into the house and immediately have a quick scope of our surroundings, not wanting to be spotted by our torches.

We would have to wait until first light before we could explore further.
