  1. I wonder if it sold.. http://www.scargillmann.co.uk/property-detail.asp?propref=31074
  2. Decided to go to the A R House as it's not far from me, finding the place, getting to the place was easy, getting in was easy. Once in, my battery on my DSLR decided to run out of juice, so I resorted to using the wifes point and shoot camera so sorry for the bad pictures. The worst thing it was raining so I couldn't fly my drone over it. WARNING....Just be aware of a farmer on a quad bike, just started upstairs taking pictures, I heard a quad bike approach the house and stop outside, next thing there was banging on the door, so me and the wife just froze on the stairway I could hear him trying all the windows and doors to get in, he was at it for a good 10mins. I thought any minute now he will be inside, he came around to window we entered through I thought, Yep, here he comes, but all he did was shut the window and then we heard him drive off, at that point my wife was ready to make a bolt for it, I said we'll hang on a few minutes in case there was two of them and ones just driven off to make out they had gone, so a few minutes later we made our exit undetected, we did see him down bottom of the track loading his quad onto a trailer but he didn't say a word to us. The farmer is obviously aware of what's going on. so be aware if you decide to visit.

  4. Just off the A66 in Darlington, there is an abandoned farm called Little Burdon farm, it has been derelict for at least a decade. It consists of different buildings being from a farmhouse to old barns or stables. There's really two farmhouses, a red brick one and a more modern white house. It also looks like some refurbishment/demolition has taken place but again has been held off or abandoned. The farm was built around the 1830s and is grade 2 listed. There is no security here and is easy to get into all of the buildings. That being said the buildings are indeed derelict so some floors are dangerous and can't be accessed. In the white house building, part of the upstairs floor has been removed due to the refurbishment works but has been left standing as it is. It also looks like the rooms have been stripped out and all electrics and gas pipes have been removed.
  5. This one was visited on my latest trip through Germany. This was the water treatment facility of a power plant. That power plant is already gone. There were also some outdoor water basins ,but they were well overgrown. The only thing I took from this facility were several mosquito's bites.

  6. I have found a location close to me in West Yorkshire that has been covered before, the site is nearly completely destroyed but the main barn and some of the out buildings still exist. I enjoyed looking around the site and turning it into a cinematic style video (i hope i aren't hated for it, my last video i posted on here went down well). Let me know what you think of the video.
  7. Hello, another from my long long long list of shitty cottages I have to post up on here tp convert you to the deeply weird realm of cottaging! Found this almost my accident whilst exploring with a couple friends, after walking what felt like miles through small forests, over streams, up and down heather marsh lands and over several feilds to visit some of the shittest derps you could probably imagine, I spotted this on the way down the wild hills. We took a chance as it was on a live farm, found the door open and decided to pop in for 30 mins and grabbed some pics. We all felt a bit uneasy as it was a live farm and decided to get out quickly, just as we were closing the door a car came down the drive way, and we bolted like a mini heard of highland cows stampeding our way down the side of the house and over a few fences to safety. Never been back, but one day I will! Thanks for cuming cottaging with me
  8. looking on maps i spotted what looked like a line of old cars and some farm sheds off i went for a look the cars have gone , i dont think they actualy had anything to with what i did find tho after all i think they were more to do with the houses behind the place the last bit of paperwork i found was dated 2009 any way enough waffle. and on with the pics thanks for looking more on my flickr https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/albums/72157687420807965
  9. History Today, Newsham is a small suburb of Blyth. Blyth itself, meaning ‘gentle’ or ‘merry’ in Old English, is a town and civil parish in Northumberland, England, and from the early 18th century the town rapidly expanded as a result of the Industrial Revolution, as coal mining, fishing and ship building industries quickly established a foothold in the area. Newsham quickly became part of the town as new houses were required for the growing number of workers in the area. Prior to the growth of industry, however, it is noted in John Wallace’s History of Blyth and a number of other sources that Newsham comprised only a few farms and a mansion as early as 1341, which were occupied by the prominent Ogle family. Despite the distinguished status of the Ogle family though, it is reported that the main holders of the lands and buildings at Newsham were in fact the Delaval family. They owned the lands from the 12th century right up until the 17th century. The 3rd Earl of Derwentwater, James Radclyffe, was the last successor to Newsham after the death of his father in 1705. It is unknown how the lands passed into the hands of the Radclyffe family, but they were said to have several estates in Northumberland and Newsham was one of those. James Radclyffe’s reign over the estate was short-lived, however, as he became a Jacobite – a member of a rebellious movement that sought to restore the Roman Catholic Stuart King James VII of Scotland, II of England and Ireland, and his heirs to the thrones of England, Scotland and Ireland. After his following of 70 (mainly gentlemen, a small number of soldiers and servants) were defeated in a short battle he was captured in 1715 and escorted to the Tower of London. The 3rd Earl of Derwentwater pleaded guilty to the charge of treason held against him, in the hope that he might gain a royal pardon. Radclyffe lost his trial and was immediately stripped of his honours and titles and sentenced to death for treason. Although most of the other Lords and Earls were granted clemency, Radclyffe’s sentence remained to set an example for others who might try to overthrow the king. He was beheaded on 24th February 1716. Following the death of Radclyffe, the Newsham estate fell into the hands of the Ridley family. At some point during their tenure of the lands (one source suggests 1880) the mansion was dismantled and the materials were said to have been used to construct a farmhouse. Another source from 1720 suggests that the former mansion was already in a state of dilapidation, with it being described as ‘an ancient structure but something ruinous’. An additional reason for its demolition may be attributed to the fact that the mansion itself was a relatively basic structure; it was only two storeys high, the grand hall was plain and simple and it had only a small number of surrounding buildings. In other words, the building was no longer deemed important enough to warrant its ‘mansion’ status. Now in the 21st century, the farmhouse and its surrounding buildings lie derelict. It is not known why the site is abandoned, the only hint is that Wallace of Kelso Ltd., a large independent agricultural company, may have been based at the Newsham site but decided to close or relocate their premises. Their main base in Dundee still exists still, so the company did not fall into different hands or go into liquidation. As things stand, there are plans to build forty new homes on the site. The main farmhouse and its other buildings will be demolished to make spaces for the new development; however, the stone wall bordering the property will remain to give the scheme a so-called historic link. A number of local residents have opposed the plans, having raised concerns about flooding, loss of privacy and the increased pressure on nearby schools, GP surgeries and other important amenities. Some residents also suggested that the old farmhouse ‘boasts character and holds heritage value’. The council, though, disagree, and argue that the site has no heritage value whatsoever. Our Version of Events Our night beganwith high aspirations. To start off with, we tried our luck at getting ourselves inside an abandoned museum. As it turned out, the museum was much less abandoned that we’d first thought. A large number of sensors were the first indication that the site was still quite active, and then the alarms we triggered supported the fact even further. We left in a hurry, feeling fairly disappointed, and continued on well into the night trying various other explores that would all turn out badly. As a last resort we found ourselves just outside Newsham, where we decided that we’d try our luck with a farmhouse we’d recently heard about. We gathered outside the car – at least what was left of our sorry looking assemblage did. Spirits were low and the night had resulted in an abnormal number of injuries. At this point the opinion was unanimous, if we failed to get into a derelict farm we would be forced to retire from exploring and take up something else. Knitting, swinging and baking were the favoured options. After that quick discussion, we decided to stop wasting time and scale the really high three-foot wall to get inside the farmyard. From there we ran for the shadows and set about trying to find a way inside the farmhouse. Inside the house it felt as though we were suddenly in an episode of Only Fools and Horses. In fact, for the entire half an hour we spent in that building it felt exactly as though we were in Nelson Mandela House. For instance, the carpets throughout the building were… Well, they were very different by conventional standards. We might even go so far as to say they were a little spicy. What is more, though, is that even the furniture matched the Peckham vibe we had going on. We were half expecting to find Uncle Albert in the living room sitting in one of the armchairs sipping on a snifter of rum, or a blow-up sex doll tucked away in a cupboard somewhere. Needless to say, we found neither. Unfortunately, we were prompted to move on to the other buildings on the site after hearing what we thought sounded like a riot outside. In the knowledge that we didn’t have any ski gear to protect ourselves, or a Russian VCR to film it, we decided to split. As for the rest of the premises, it had its own unique bits and quirks, such as the pianos we stumbled across in small backroom, or the strange dining room setup inside one of the large barns. All in all, then, considering the place looked like an incredibly trashed farm from the outside it ended up being a decent wander. After taking a look around the entire site and seeing everything there was to see, we headed back to the car. It was just starting to snow at this point, so it was time to switch the car heater to full blast and warm up a wee bit.

  10. footage and pics are taken from two quick visits. One in August and one in November 2016. Some stolen history......... In 2008 the farm was closed after concerns were raised about the welfare of the birds that were kept there. These included Harris hawks, red-tailed hawks, two emaciated European eagle owls and Lanner falcons. In 2005, nine eagle owls kept at the council-owned site were used in film Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Since the farm was abandoned it has become a dangerous eyesore, and a meeting place for local kids and with evidence of drug taking on the site. Piles of rubbish litter the farm buildings, where slates have been stolen from the roof and fires have been started. In 2009 RATS president Paul Dainton called upon Wakefield Council to make the site safer after the buildings became too unsafe to be left as they were. In July 2010 the farm was sold at auction by Wakefield Council for £162,000, selling for almost double the guide price. It is unsure of what the new owners plan to do with site at present. info taken from www.stanleyhistoryonline.com Feedback welcome, still new to this.

  12. An abandoned farm somewhere in the Belgian countryside... LOVELY!! ...Chez Bobonne... Thanks for 'avin a gander
  13. Probably one of my favourite locations this year! well up there with some of my favs anyway... An old farmhouse and the owner dont care about it but inside its a brilliant treasure of a place, upon entering I went through the floor (ankle deep) as I left the room I then went through the floor again, think that one room was cursed as it got me on the way out aswel. Upstairs a gem of little trinkets and some fine decay on the walls, with branches growing in through broken top windows, its a real gem to be seen, big thanks to Mikeymutt for the heads up. Since my visit a few bits have been moved about like a game of chess lol On with the photos! Thats all folks, more coming soon no doubt thanks for looking!
  14. This was another of those fab days out, Just driving around and checking out stuff I had been wanting to see for a while that had popped up online. So myself Zyge, littlebear and Spark headed out for the day to avoid massive nettles and horsefly bites..... Something that I did not manage all to well 1st stop was a area called Hillbilly farm, this was linked to RAF Fersfield and the land incorporates some of the old nissen huts and a few other out buildings as well. Inside some of these buildings you will see there are all sorts of vehicles and other bits of junk, most of what nature has now reclaimed. There is not a lot of history on the farm itself other than the farmer did not want to sell it off as he was worried about being ripped of, how true this is I am not sure, but the airfield history I feel is important as most of what there is to see incorporates the building that are there. The runway is now gone as are all airfield building that we looked for, but you can still drive around the taxi way if you wish Built in 1943/1944, the airfield was originally a satellite of RAF Knettishall. It was constructed to Class A bomber specifications, with a main 6,000 ft (1,800 m) runway (08/26), and two secondary runways (02/20, 14/32) of 4,200 ft (1,300 m). Accommodation for about 2,000 personnel were in Nissen huts along with an operations block and two T-2 hangars. The facility was originally named Winfarthing when it was allocated to the United States Army Air Forces in 1942. Assigned to the VIII Bomber Command, it was renamed Fersfield when used by the Americans. Winfarthing was assigned USAAF station number 140; Fersfield was reassigned 554. Not used by the USAAF, it was transferred to the United States Navy for operational use. The airfield is most notable as the operational airfield for Operation Aphrodite, a secret plan for remote controlled Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress bombers (redesignated as BQ-7s) to be used against German V-1 flying bomb sites, submarine pens, or deep fortifications that had resisted conventional bombing 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
  15. Another mini installment of my recent venture up north to this lovely wee farm. Not much infor on it, but some lovely colours and a cracking wee derp shed, everyone loves a derp shed!! Thanks for looking!
  16. Another boring topic from my venture up North. Nothing much to say about this wee derp farm, spotted it from the main road, a quick de-tour and few photos later, you have this! Derp. Thanks for looking!
  17. Not a massive place, but a nice wee explore. Found on one of my random road trips in my local area, driving along a country back road, I spot this place up on top of a hill, a quick U-turn and popped up a long bumpy farm track, to get a few quick photos, no stealthyness or long trek, drive right up to the farm be quick and get out! Who doesn't love a bit of shag on the stairs, hallway, bedrooms and of course the bathroom! I was originally going to call this farm from something like Farthing Farm, because of all the dead birds and animals But after a quick look around the outbuildings I saw this!! Thanks for looking!!
  18. I had driven past this farmhouse 12 times last year, on route to other places in Norfolk, past Cambridgeshire alike an not once did I have a real big urge to take a peek, it wasn't until a friend took a few externals an shots through the window, that it finally seemed worthy of my time. So arriving just as the sun shined across the field, I walked towards the old farmhouse an opened the door. This is what greeted me an to be honest I rather enjoyed this derp! 1 3 5 6 9 8 7 10 4 11 12 13 Short and sweet but very surprising to have a lovely piano inside cheers for looking!
  19. Hey everyone:D History..A classic example of a country estate with buildings and a designed landscape forming an integral composition reflecting late C19 taste. Minley Manor and its pleasure grounds laid out by Robert T Veitch and his landscaper F W Meyer in the 1880s form the centrepiece to the estate. This followed an earlier phase of planting undertaken by James Veitch in the 1860s. The western half of the estate is criss-crossed by a network of drives and tracks radiating from Fleet Lodge, one of which leads to Home Farm (a model farm built to the design of Arthur Castings in 1900) situated 500m south-east of the Manor. I visited here a little while back with a non-member, but had an awesome morning here - not tonnes of stuff left as rotten floorboards put some places off limits, but definitely a nice little explore. anyhow, on with some pictures.. (apologies if this is in the wrong category - only put it here as i thought it might come under manors/residential:D) These are some of my earliest urbex pictures, and in my opinion could be improved massively - not my best set, but thanks for looking nonetheless
  20. Stopped in here on the way up to snowdonia for a weekend of kayaking, camping and exploring unfortunately not as much exploring as we had hoped as we turned up at very well boarded up cloud house win some you loose some, consider that boat missed. Its definitely on the rear end of its derelict lifespan id say, its plenty trashed inside which is a shame, most the rooms have clearly been set up for shots which is fine, as you can see i took the same shots myself but of course its never the same as being in one of those untouched, frozen in time spaces. Still plenty of knick-knacks and stuff about though which was nice for me as i wanted to play about with my prime lens. Haven't found anything on other reports about the history of the house unfortunately. ta muchly for looking, have fun and stay safe kids!
  21. Could not find any history on this place, though i have not really tried hard enough. Was in a fairly clean state and from reading a letter that had been opened i think it was being lived in until last year sometime, not much to see really. The Farm House The Farm House The Farm House The Farm House The Farm House The Farm House The Farm House The Farm House The Farm House The Farm House The Farm House The Farm House The Farm House The Farm House Thanks for looking
  22. For reasons that seemed like a good idea at the time, we decided to go to Belgium in my car - a Land Rover Defender (short wheel base version). There were four of us in the car, along with some stuff for Hotel Derp, and some camera stuff. Let's just say that the best place to be, from a comfort perspective are the front seats. We figured it would be best to try and get to the first location that evening, although it was a long drive, and then hit it as the sun came up. We arrived very late, but in good spirits. We had a quick look at the farm house, and all was good. Now, don't ask why, as I really have no idea, but for some reason we decided it would be a good idea to sleep in the car, rather than in the derp. I have to tell you it was a very cold night. VERY cold. So much so, that non of us slept that well, we decided to call time on the lack of sleep and get up. We got to the farmhouse before the sun came up... But it was worth it The location is an interesting mix of personal items one almost comes to expect in a farmhouse The things that make a house a home Some traditional farm tools And some things that are just unusual It was a good little visit, and by the time we got back to the car, the sun had been up for a while, so had we, and it was time to leave, on to the next location. After loading up, I went to wipe the condensation from the inside of the windscreen. It took a while - the condensation had frozen!!! Told you it was cold!!! Thanks for viewing
  23. ...Tapioca Farm... A late autumn day trip to Belgium and me n NK just had enough time to squeeze in a quick mooch round this classic derp... NICE! ... Cheers for lookin in...
  24. Prisoner of War Camp 116 was set up in 1941 to house Italian prisoners of war, and from 1943-1944 it mainly held German and Austrian prisoners. Camp 116 (Mill Lane Camp, Hatfield Heath) conforms to the so-called ‘Standard’ layout. Seeing as this was only my 2nd time of going out I wasn't too impressed. The gates were locked and there was barbed wire fencing sections off - Would prob have been better at night and with someone with more experience.
