Home Farm, Derbyshire February 2016

Intro:

A really nice little place and interesting to look around. The farm house has its windows and doors boarded up with wood and metal shuttering so inside is pitch black. This gave me change to use my new torch for the first time! I couldn't get any photos of the outside of the house because its extremely overgrown and the only position that would have allowed a photograph would have made me visible to some workers.

The house inside is really sturdy, no rotten floorboards or anything although in places the roof has just started to cave in so it won't stay that way long. I noticed some recent graffiti in the outbuildings as well, it looks like the local kids have found it.

Lots of nice old wallpaper and carpets to look at but unfortunately its completely empty – not even a piece of rubbish in there.

History:

I can't even find the names of who inhabited it in the past. A lot of the nice old stuff from the outbuildings has vanished over recent years and the house itself has nothing to indicate a built date.

The farm is situated in the grounds of a 315 acre estate and provided the main house with milk and other produce. It had cattle and pigs but also grew a variety of crops. Every summer the entire estate staff from laborers to grooms flocked to Home Farm to help with the harvest.

Anyway, here are the pictures, firstly some from inside (remember is was pitch black so excuse the hard light in areas).......

Nice little place by the looks of it, and heavily decayed too (y)  I am sure that My nan had the same carpet as in pic 3 & 4 in her house & the wallpaper in Pic 9 is banging! I love it :)

Thanks for sharing, (y)
