The Explore

 ​

Well, I'm a little behind on posting reports, 13 months behind to be exact. Mojo issues mixed with a busy year but generally can't be arsed with the whole thing. Normally this is where I'd write about the explore and what happened etc but I really can't remember much as it was last April and I've slept approximately 387 times since then. I had a quick squiz at @Urbexbandoned's report to jog my memory, to pinch the history, and to view all the items that I myself failed to photograph due to walking around with my eyes closed as normal. Easy derp to have a wander around and I think we had spent the previous few days sleeping in the car near, and inside of, a large hospital down south in Cardiff, then worked our way up to Shropshire and back to Lincoln on a lengthy road trip of derpy delights..​

 ​

History

This was once a Dairy Farm, built in 1725 as a Georgian Farmhouse. It's most recent resident was Ellen Jones who died in the 70's. I believe that some of her family also lived there as there are lots of bits of paperwork for a Francis Jones & a gentleman with the same surname.​

This farmhouse has more or less a written / photographic story of the residents who once lived there.​

Cupboards littered with bread and cake making supplies and ingredients showed the life of a typical farmhouse wife.​

Exterior buildings litter the farmhouse, some still being used today with the farmland scattered with cattle.​

Set in a beautiful little countryside, I cant help but think this really would have been beautiful in it's day.​
