UK Hobbits House - Aug 17

Recommended Posts

Although this place may look old, it actually isn't it was started by a farmer in the 80's.

Known as the 'Hobbit House'. The farmer took 11 years to build this incredible two-storey building, which features several turrets, dovecotes and stained glass windows built by a local artist. This was all built by the farmer with this own hands and form stones he found on his land. 

The farmer built this simply to store hay and other supplies, but rather than stopping at four walls, the building begun to grow, until it eventually became the unusual build it is today.

The stained glass windows represent the four seasons, winter, spring, summer, autumn and the four elements, earth, air, fire and water.

To give a sense of scale, the doors are normal sized doors. This is not a miniture house, it is full size.

The house was not built for a movie set and has not been in any movie. It was built purely as a hobby and a labour of love.

In a newspaper interview the farmer said "I just got a bit carried away!"

The farmer sold the land in 2000 due to the local quarry disrupting his peace and is now farming in Scotland.

 

The Explore itself was very edgy, after being told the new owner of the land was an angry farmer that didn't want visitors we took our chances. After getting stuck in the building for 30 mins waiting for the farmer to finish cutting the grass on the field the house sits on, we eventually managed a full explore of this place.

      I nipped over last night to check the fire damage.
      The only building that was on fire is the St Mary's building (which was a nurses home not a care home as I have written in this report). It has suffered damage to the right hand side of the building but is not totally burned out.

      There is a planning application submitted to demolish most of the buildings on the site including St Edwards. As far as I could see there has been no descision made on it yet.

      I also found this on the net (link below), it gives the whole history and a detailed report on all the buildings. There is still some unseen stuff here notably the chapel within the former St Gerards Hospital which is now offices. If demo goes ahead I'm sure it will become more accesible. It will be a shame to see these buildings go as it's a great urbex site imo.

      Hi All
      As much as we all hate to see our beloved shrines of dereliction, they all eventually either get ripped down or converted
      A lot of these are good, and a lot of them are very, very bad
      What are the best ones you have seen?
      My favourite has to be Nethernene on the hill. Located just down the road from cane hill
      Its a beauty

      Not a lot about this place, I believe the bowling part shut down in 2009 and then the crystal maze part shut down in 2010. Oakwood own this place and have no plans for it besides letting it rot away. Whoever is trying to look after this place is attempting to keep people out. Heard about this place from a different site, easy to find, such a pain in the arse to get into as there's a very tight gap to try and squeeze through..
       
      Thee maze is bigger than first thought, only uploaded a few pictures of that.
