In Nancy Drew: Curse of Blackmoor Manor, you take your first trip beyond the US to the UK, to discover the cause behind American newlywed Linda's mysterious behavior, at the behest of her mother. Invariably, you also stumble upon a centuries-old treasure hunt.

A very crude map of the manor, likely used at the very beginning of development. Abbreviations are for CONservatory, HALlway, HIDden passageway, and LIBrary. The great hall is not labeled, but would appear between the two HID boxes and the HAL row on this map.
