Frere hall, which once was a heaven for old books sellers and buyers, is now,showing,signs of neglect and despair. Despite ever ongoing work, the place presents a picture of haunted house.

Visited Frere Hall on Eat Festival in 2017, beautiful architecture and well maintained lawns. The spacious place had been well utilized for setting up stalls and space for eating. My kids enjoyed the trip and looked up info as well after returning.
