House of fun -jun 2012

Recommended Posts

i havent had time to find any real "solid" info on this place and i dont want to give half of it as it will ruin it

but as we walking on to the site we we heard "stop where you are!" thought it was police but turned out to be some teenagers warning us about a gas leak and that its really bad in the house (couldnt smell gas at all inside but on the outside it was really strong) we asked a few questions about the history and they were saying about it was a care home for the rich :dunno:


they lead us to this photo and apparently the bloke on the left was the "manager" and the one on in the middle was a millionaire

i have no idea if this is true but i went with it :)

if anyone knows any information please comment it i really would like to know the story

*(if there's any spelling/grammar mistakes sorry about that but is my dyslexic :D )*

Interesting, there was a place close to use similar to this when I first got into exploring, I went back to explore it a few months later and the builders had moved in and repair work had started, I was told by some one it was a rehab centre for rich people with drug and alcohol problems, nice pics as always

Thanks for posting !

      Recently, I´ve visited "Mold House". Of course, more than well-known. When I first set my eyes on pictures of that house with its amazing colours and its state of decay, I instantly fell in love. I´m glad I could fulfill my dream of visiting that place. I especially loved the pink colour of the armchairs being sokaed into the carpet.

      As far as history goes for this particular property, it is sparse as it is nothing more than a fairly modern residential building. One newspaper based in Barnsley reported that traffic came to a standstill as a result of a fire at the property on Rotherham Road. Two fire crews attended the scene and spent two-and-a-half hours extinguishing the blaze. A second source suggests that the fire was caused by a lit candle, and that a woman had a lucky escape. The woman concerned apparently suffered slight smoke inhalation but was otherwise in good health. The property itself is an average sized two-storey house. Its notable features include an indoor swimming pool and a spiral staircase. 

      Our Version of Events

      Of all the places we could end up in, we ended up in Barnsley. After looking at the town hall and wandering around the town and its meat and fish market for half an hour it didn’t take long to run out of things to do, so we decided we might as well look for an explore. However, the best thing we could find, unfortunately, was an old burnt down house. We tried a couple of other spots beforehand but didn’t have much luck overall. 

      The house on Rotherham Road is exactly what you might expect for a residential explore – mostly empty and damp. As noted above, though, it does feature an indoor swimming pool where you can try your hand at floating across on doors someone has thrown in. Needless to say, we weren’t very successful but it was certainly worth a quick go. The second bit of the building that’s worth a look at is the spiral staircase in what we think was the former living room. This room was the most photogenic part of the explore so we spent most of our time in here. Going up the staircase turned out to be a complete waste of time because this is where the fire was. There is very little left of the roof and most of the floorboards look rather fucked. Compared to the mansions and castles of Belgium and France, then, this explore is a big disappointment, but it does kill fifteen minutes if you happen to be passing and fancy a swim. 

      Explored with Ford Mayhem.

      The House Of Tears...this place has been a labour of love and hate on occasions...Those who recognise her will know the history and the tragedy that runs throughout her walls..she is simply stunning to walk around in knowing that some of our legends of music have stayed there also made it even more of a truley amazing place to be...after seeing a post on her a couple of years ago and her getting battoned down faster than lightening i decided to hunt her down and give her a whirl back in september..lady luck shone that day and we got the whole afternoon to wander about her..i know the tourist trail hit her very quickly and no doubt youve seen her already, but heres my take on a magnificant building slowly being preserved..

      This was last stop on a southern road trip which saw myself, my partner in crime NK and non members Alt day out and Sshhh! playing at pirates, would be brain surgeons and finally donning our lab coats to have a good mooch round this bizarre place...
      Grand, crumbling mansion from the outside, weird chemical store inside??
      Highlight of the trip as far as I'm concerned!! I love places like this, full of gubbins that you can have a good root through
      Hope you like the pix...
