UK Worthen Farmhouse, Shropshire - April 2016

Recommended Posts

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."

Thanks bud @jones-y-gog! :). Pretty cool little place I agree, one of my favourite cottaging experiences to date :D. Can't beat a farmer in a tractor spreading his shit all over the place for our nasal enjoyment haha :D

Stunning pics there mate, captured it brilliantly. I was a bit disappointed when I walked in this place if i'm honest but there was some pretty cool stuff upstairs. It's changed a fair bit since you went, lots of clutter downstair and things have gone missing.

Thanks mate @The_Raw :) . Yeah I quite liked this place from memory. I can't remember the exact layout of the house as we done a whole pile of cottaging around that time and they're all sort of merged together in my head lol, but like you said these places get slowly emptied unfortunately by the yoinkers :D. Those old sewing machines alone must be worth a few quid :)

Thanks @Ferox, yeah it seems to be the way with traffic going through these places; eventually it just becomes a shit-tip :?

      We visited St John's Hospital in Lincolnshire on Sunday, here is our video. Although we were told the security at the hospital was extremely tight we didn't actually come across any security at all! They must have been having a day off lol.

      A bit of a pain in the back side to get in this one, they have really made an effort with those fences! There was no security though, once you find a way past the doubled up security fences it's smooth sailing. We did find one particular part of this place rather creepy, there is a rotten bed in a dark basement that was quite eerie and had a different feel than the rest of the decaying building. More information will follow on our website in a day or so.

      History
       
      Horbury had a chapel of ease to the Church of All Saints in Wakefield, from before the time of the Domesday Book. The chapel was replaced by a Norman chapel with a nave and tower that stood until it was replaced by the present church in 1790. St Peter and St Leonard’s Church, the parish church, was designed by John Carr, the Horbury born architect who built the Georgian neo-classical style between 1790 and 1794 at a cost to himself of £8,000. He is buried in a vault beneath the north aisle. The foundation of St John’s Church at Horbury Bridge was in a mission meeting in a room in what is now the hairdressers in 1864. Funds were raised and the church was built with stone from Horbury Quarry in 1884. The curate, Sabine Baring-Gould wrote the hymn “Onward Christian Soldiers” in 1865 for the Whitsun procession to Horbury Church. Another mission was set up at Horbury Junction in 1887 and St Mary’s Church was built in 1893. The Methodist Church on High Street was demolished. The Salvation Army corps has headquarters on Peel Street and the Tithe Barn Christian Centre is on Westfield Road.

      Tithe Barn Street in Horbury was so named after the old tithe barn, which was used to store produce of the tithe. A tithe means a tenth and one tenth of every Horbury parishioner's income from produce of the land had to be donated to the church. The right to receive tithes was granted to the English churches by King Ethelwulf in 855. These tithes were taxes, which each inhabitant was compelled to pay. Horbury was a Chapel of Ease to Wakefield Parish Church, and the Vicar of Horbury was a Curate in Charge. The tithes which were collected from Horbury residents belonged to the Vicar of Wakefield and not to the Vicar of St. Peter's, Horbury.

      By chance we discovered this one on route to Wakefield... The exterior is in good condition and from what we understand the building became abandoned in 2011 after various businesses one including a day nursery had re-located. The interior is pretty heavily vandalised and lots of precious metals & items have been taken... this said theres no real structural damage and was able to negotiate round without any real danger. The main hall of the church still as some original features including coving found typically in a church, unfortunately no pews or alter remain although there was a cool seating area above the main hall. There was also an area round to the rear probably an extension at some point to deal with the volume of people... which had kept some of its original features... quite a nice easter egg this one

      Today the Christian Centre lays more vandalised than ever...
       
      still worth a wonder in my opinion
