High Beeches damaged by Halifax bomber

These are the last pictures in the series of amateur photographs taken soon after the crew-less Halifax bomber crashed at High Beeches causing the devastating damage to the mansion in March 1943.
Some reports of the incident say that the stricken Halifax clipped a large chimneystack bringing it to the ground. The pictures tell a more catastrophic story, no doubt compounded by a ferocious fire which swept through the building bringing down the roof and floors beneath.
The Large Version shows another view of the north side of the building.
