UK Twenty Foot House - Lincolnshire - March 2016

Recommended Posts

History

 

I can't find much history on this one. All I know is that this was an established farm for some years before the owners moved to a new premises in the Lincolnshire area. After being pointed out that there is still a lot left here especially if they just moved I am now unsure as to why this place is empty. I had read somewhere they had moved premises but that seems unlikely. 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 explore

 

Firstly thanks to @Mikeymutt for info on this place. Much appreciated as always :)

Visited with @hamtagger as always :D Really nice explore this. Infact I may as well say that I have got the bug for cottaging haha!

Everywhere we turned in this litle place was something to see. There is so much here that will sadly end up in a skip one day but it is one of those houses I looked at and really thought I could live here. Looking beyond the damage and the way it was, it has real potential.

Some really grand features, mainly the furniture. The house was lovely and dotted with age old signs that it really needs some

modernising. Nice and leisurely though, lots of noises, the wind banging doors upstairs, birds in the loft etc.

Anyway enough of me waffling, here are the pics

Amazing little place there, wonder why they didn't clear it out if they just moved premises? Must be more to the story otherwise seems a pointless waste...

You have a very good point, there is a hell of a lot left. Maybe someone died. I just noticed a sign on the back saying they had moved but thinking back not entirely sure if it was for this place or not. I will edit.

That's pretty cool, love the old bakerlite radio. I bet that would still work if it was plugged in, they're pretty robust normally.

Thank you, the label was one of my favourite parts of the whole explore. Love finding little things like that and the royal seal, well I doubt there are many of them around nowadays. :)

      Formerly a cable factory was here (founded in 1837, closed in 2008, partially demolished). The air raid shelter was for the company's employees.   1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9

      The oldest parts of the church dates back to the 12th century, the octagonal tower was added in the 13th century. The windows were renewed in the 15th century and the roof in 1633. Further renovations took place in 1867 and 1874. The church was closed in 1987, but it's maintained until today.   1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10   11   12   13   14   15   16

      So this is my first post on this forum, I found out about these houses on a Abandoned Lincolnshire group on Facebook and thought they were definitely worth a trip, but... the first trip wasn't very successful, the address for these houses took us to two houses on the other side of Withcall that were at one point abandoned but have since been knocked down, so after about half an hour of looking around it became very clear the houses weren't there.
       
      After talking to the person who posted them originally and finding out the real location we headed back up to find them. We had to make sure we kept quiet as there is a neighbor attached to the 2nd station house and we weren't sure they'd have appreciated a night time visit from 3 explorers haha. 
       
      Access to the house is easy, the doors being left open is always convenient. Walking around the houses only took 30 minutes or so , but was still a nice little explore. It's one of them places that besides a few repairs and some serious wallpapering, it looks like the family could just walk back through the front door and pick up their lives where they left off which gave the houses a real creepy vibe.
       
      I guess that's all that really needs to be said about these houses. Here's a few pictures:

      I visited this place with @Dangle_Angle and @Lavino after the main target of the day was a fail. Thanks to Lavino driving us here and even tho they had already been they also enjoyed the place to. I also got to learn how to use the camera a bit better . The inside of this place is amazing because the whole place hardly has any graffiti and the place is in pretty good condition. Also the whole place is made out of wood which gives a very nice feel to the place. Anyway here is some pictures and some history, hope you enjoy .

      George Barnsley and Sons Ltd. (founded 1836) They were in Cornish Place on the Don and specialised in forge filing and cutting tools for leather workers and shoe makers. One George Barnsley was Master Cutler in 1883.:

      George Barnsley and Son is listed in the 1837 Sheffield directory as a file manufacture situated on Wheeldon Street, The 1849 listing records a move to Cornhill and the 1852 to Cornesh works Cornesh street they had by this time also increased there product range to include steel files, shoe and butchers knives.

      They are again listed in 1944 as manufactures of files and blades shoe knives and leather workers tools.

      In the 1948 listing the business had become George Barnsley and Son Ltd

      George Barnsley died at his home at No 30 Collegiate Crescent on 30th March 1958, he lived there with his wife Mabel and mother-in-law Elizabeth. He was a partner in the firm which were steel and file manufacturers and the business was converted into a limited company about 10 years before his death.

      He had a long army career, joining up in 1896 and serving in the Boer war and two world wars. Colonel Barnsley played a leading part in the development of the Army Cadet Force in Sheffield. He Died Aged 83. (History from Lavino)

      History 
       
      Due to the aircraft stationed at RAF Coningsby there was an external bomb dump, in order to Reduce the quantities of explosives stored and the number of personnel exposed to risk, along with separating explosive processing from storage were the major lessons adopted in what I believe was the reason for a bomb dump further away than normal. 
      Historically I couldn't find much on this place. I did find out about an accident that occurred there in 1971 though. 
      An accident which killed 2 armourers while they were preparing 68mm SNEB Rockets. Without warning, one initiated in the process building they were working in. There was an unexplained electrostatic discharge causing the rocket motor to fire. 
       
      The Explore 
      Well this is pretty close for me, literally just down the road. I have been here before. Obviously having a connection to the RAF held some interest here. 
      I explored with @hamtagger as per  We had a relatively leisurely stroll around. As far as bomb dumps go it was 'normal' in layout and relatively huge.  Admin buildings scattered the front section of the site past the picket post and the remainder were process buildings or prep buildings. 
      We ventured in to one and noticed that we hadn't seen it before, on any reports or throughout social media but it was what was inside that caught my attention. Guns & not the handheld sort. I have had to do a bit of research on this because I wasn't aware that firstly they were Royal Navy guns & secondly what type of gun they were. It turns out that there was 2 types, the first was a GCM-A03 twin barrelled Oerlikon. This had a firing seat where someone could sit, almost like a little cabin. It was a bloody tight squeeze as well and I am tiny! Apparently capable of firing 650 rounds a minute. The second which there were 2 of didn't have a firing seat so it was fired by someone either standing up and shooting it or controlled electronically. The first fired 30mm rounds while the second fired 35mm rounds. Both would have been mounted on a ship & both had the barrels removed. Next to this we also found what we believe to be a small communication suite. I have never seen one before and may never do again but it was cosy and compact! We had more or less finished when we spotted 2 blokes part literally right outside & jump over the front gate, they seemed to follow us to the rear side of the site. No camera's or owt then just disappeared. 
      Anyway, enough of my waffle & on to the pics
