This was a chance find in late 2015 with a second visit in early 2016. Although someone - presumably a family member - had tried to do some 'sorting' they hadn't got very far. At the time it had been un-lived in for quite some years I'd say.
There wasn't much to reveal specific detail about who had lived there and everything seemed to point to a perfectly middle-class respectability. Magazines about gardening, commemorative crockery etc. A cupboard for bottles of booze, almost all unopened, so a picture of restraint and moderation.
However I then saw a full carousel of slide photographs. I picked one out expecting it to probably be a holiday snap from a seaside resort. It wasn't pictures of Bournemouth, although they could have been taken in the 70's. The whole lot was of very well-endowed gentlemen who must have been somewhere really hot because they had to take all their clothes off
In the interest of taste and decency these have not made the final collection but I hope you still enjoy the report.
Beware the giant butterfly
Update - work has now started on major renovations to the house and gardens
