Worthen Farmhouse The Explore This was from last April. I can't remember a huge amount about this location as myself and @Urbexbandoned had spent the weekend further south in Wales and we were working our way back up to this area before heading back home. There was a farmer bumming about in a tractor right across the road spreading his animal shite around the place, but from memory it was a nice easy and relaxed mooch. Out in the back garden area there was various abandoned cars and and a couple of old tractors, which were nice to look at, especially the old 3.3 litre Vauxhall Cresta. The History History on this place is pretty vague unfortunately and all that i could find through extensive research (copied from Tracey's report @Urbexbandoned) is that "the former resident passed away some time ago and apparently her son couldn't bring himself to sell the house or sort it out so it has been left to decay naturally." The Pictures 1. 2. 3. 4/5. 6. 7. Bedpans are useful eh? 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. The Vauxhall Cresta 3.3 Litre Straight Six (Thanks to Hamtagger Senior for the vehicle ID ) 20.

Calcott Hall The Explore Well, I'm a little behind on posting reports, 13 months behind to be exact. Mojo issues mixed with a busy year but generally can't be arsed with the whole thing. Normally this is where I'd write about the explore and what happened etc but I really can't remember much as it was last April and I've slept approximately 387 times since then. I had a quick squiz at @Urbexbandoned's report to jog my memory, to pinch the history, and to view all the items that I myself failed to photograph due to walking around with my eyes closed as normal. Easy derp to have a wander around and I think we had spent the previous few days sleeping in the car near, and inside of, a large hospital down south in Cardiff, then worked our way up to Shropshire and back to Lincoln on a lengthy road trip of derpy delights.. History This was once a Dairy Farm, built in 1725 as a Georgian Farmhouse. It's most recent resident was Ellen Jones who died in the 70's. I believe that some of her family also lived there as there are lots of bits of paperwork for a Francis Jones & a gentleman with the same surname. This farmhouse has more or less a written / photographic story of the residents who once lived there. Cupboards littered with bread and cake making supplies and ingredients showed the life of a typical farmhouse wife. Exterior buildings litter the farmhouse, some still being used today with the farmland scattered with cattle. Set in a beautiful little countryside, I cant help but think this really would have been beautiful in it's day. The Pictures 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7/8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. Little bonus car in the garage in the grounds.. 16. As always thanks for looking and feedback always appreciated
Twenty Foot Farm The Explore Visited with @Urbexbandoned on a chilly March morning. Thanks to @Mikeymutt for the location of a place that I'd probably driven past a few hundred times when I lived nearby and an classic example of me not keeping my eyes open when I should've done. This place confused me a little bit. The family who ran their pork/bacon business from here are supposed to have only moved premises to another location in Lincolnshire, so i'm unsure as to why they left such a large property full of furniture and stuff empty and falling into dereliction. Anyway, glad they did and I walked away from the place dreaming about renovating the place and living there... The History (Stolen as per) Not a lot of history to be found online about this place but the residents were well known within the area and their family dates back to the 1800's. This was once a thriving farm. Producing Pigs for Bacon as well as other fresh produce. The Pictures 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. As always, thanks for looking and feedback always appreciated
