    there is people that live on the grounds, such as the colonel in the house on the right as soon as you go in the gate, when i was there in march, 55 oc lived in the house next to the arch at the end of the drivway, and somebody lived in the house looking out onto the main road next to the gate.

    as for minley manor, when i was on roaming patrols on the night shift, it appeared entiely uninhabited, all of the lights seemed to be switched off all the time, except for in a few downstairs rooms.

    As far as I remember it used to be the Brigadiers' residence, and scared the beejeesus out of me when I was armed only with my pick helve, crunching up the gravel path, gimpering

    Isn't the officers mess there as well? Not in the main building, but at the back of the colonels house, or am I mistaken?

    As for the main building it belongs to the imfamous ghost.

    the mess entrance is on the left just before the archway at the end of the drive.

    some of the davinci code was filmed there apparently. perhaps it's the ghost of the curator who got killed in there?!

    i think the thames scene in tommorrow never dies was filmed in hawley hard too, or so i hear

    IIRC, the sentry box by the main gate at Minley Manor is the coldest known point in the universe. Still shivering 22 years on!
