I've code named this place as Meadows Cottage. This place is a hidden time capsule, with diaries and newspapers from as early as the 1940's. The most recent items had dates around the 1980's so it's hard to say how long this place has even been abandoned for. I actually explored this place back in May but have not yet shared it to the forum so here it is. ​

 ​

So this place i understand was owned by a old lady named Mrs Banning, unfortunately when she past away this was past to her nephew that lived in Isle of Man. He had no care or need for the building or his aunties items inside.. it's since become left to decay and nature reclaimed the building and its surrounding area. With the recent sale of the building the new owners plan to demolish and rebuild on the land.. but this is said to currently be on hold due to bats, now taking residency in the cottage.​

 ​

It was obvious the surrounding garden that was once overgrown around the cottage was recently cut back, making for a easy access. I was very surprised to find what we did inside just left and forgotten. Here's some pictures form the explore followed by the Video of the explore.​

Looks like it's going to be a total empty shell from the outside but turns out there's quite a lot of old bits and pieces in there! :)  

Thanks for posting (y)

I thought the same as hamtagger did. 

Always interesting to find a few things that tell you something about the history.

I particularly like the fourth photo with the flower in front of the house.

Agree with what's been said above, you should never judge a book by its cover so to speak. 

Welcome to the forum aswell (y)
