UK Twenty Foot House - Lincolnshire - March 2016

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. :)

      Visited with @albino jay and @GK-WAX and thanks again to jay for doing the driving and I also stole your history mate because I couldn’t find any hope you don’t mind. We was passing by the mill on our way home so popped in for a look. And glad we did I like these old mills. And the demo team were already on site so don’t know how long it has left to stand. So here’s the history and pics..
       
      Steam-powered worsted-spinning mill built around 1850 on Black Brook.
       
      Owners and tenants of the mills have included
      James Nutton & Company [1863]
      John Horsfall & Sons Limited [1896]
      F. K. Adcock & Company [1936]
      Part of the Mills are still standing though no longer used.
      The mill had a 170 ft tall chimney which was struck by lightning in 1967. The chimney was reduced in height – to avoid further strikes – and was finally demolished in March/April 1992
       
      The majority of the Mills were demolished in 2017.

      this house always interested me..the yard was filled with junk..old cars..and other junk..it gave the appearence of being abandoned but someone clearly lived there

      the area became prime real estate..mcmansions went up and taxes went up..i knew this houses wouldent last....i went by and saw it was finally empty
      the 1st floor was a neat gloomy  house



      rooms that feel like a horror movie

      all the lights hung poorly..surpised there wasent a fir from them..



       

      see more of that in a bit

      upstairs'


      the upstairs was nthing but an attic...no bedrooms or bathroom..this was a single floor home..



      basement

      a wood burning heater...thats an old way to heat a house



      the last thing still hanging that shows the personality of the owner


      odd old stained glass

      not sure what that is...

      ..the dead and prarie home companion
       
      There are a few male voices caught inside one seems like another lanuage

      This place has been on the radar for a while now but never got the chance to properly take a look. The dome itself can be seen for quite a few miles across the surrounding areas. Not a great deal of information available other than it looks like some sort of water treatment site/reservoir possibly used by the MOD, given the land its situated on. It doesn't appear to be fully derelict either as you can still here the sound of running water and the grass seems to be trimmed.
       
      The explore went as planned, few dog walkers here and there, other than that spent a little while looking around.

      First things first - this place is a death-trap. Simple as that. And it's quite likely to be worse now than it was when I went. But as I have a bit of an obsession about redundant old cinemas and theatres I left all common sense at the entrance.
       
      The building still shows signs of its grand past but sadly any possibility of saving it looks pretty slim, although a Trust has been set up to try to preserve it and bring it back into use.
       
      The four-storey building, designed by G. B. Rawcliffe, opened in 1894 as a music hall, before being converted to a cinema in 1938. It was last used as a bingo hall in 1995.

      First vid upload for a while, although I have not stopped exploring.
       
      Should be more videos coming up soonish
       
      This gothic mansion was once owned by a doctor who released a mental health patient who sadly went on
      to stab an 11 yr old girl to death. I believe he was pretty much chased out of his home by locals (they may or may not of have had burning torches)
      Nice place though, there used to be more cars, but sadly there gone now.
       
      The car is a 1964 humber super snipe
       
      and yes I know I spelt doctor wrong on the vid title  god knows why
