The Giant's Cottage - Aug. 2014

This is the first house I've had the opportunity to explore so far, not an area that has interested me so much so far but I really liked this place, it's aged and decayed really well and had some beautiful soft light in there along with many items of interest. Visited with The_Raw, Trollface and PocFan1984.

Unfortunately I know hardly anything about the history of the place, at the entrance to a long forest pathway there is a small shrine with a plaque quoting some dates in the early 40's. There were a number of personal items in the house, with a better grasp of Flemish and a bit more time could be possible to build a story from the contents but I had neither. The earliest dated document I found was 1898 and the most recent was 1978. One room contained an absolutely massive bed (length wise) which is why the title is what it is. :p

A desk with books, papers and artefacts strewn around it.

The Giant's Bed, the bed was maybe 11 feet long, something massive, bit strange!

The house was in a poor state of repair, found this in one very dark room..

Thankfully no one was hurt and we could have a laugh about it. :)


Plenty more rooms and objects to photograph here, well worth a little visit as although very aged it seemed to have not been vandalised for the most part.

The high-res pics as well as a few extras are on my blog page, linked back to OblivionState. http://www.unexposed.photography/Visits/AbandonedCottageBEL
