UK Twenty Foot House - Lincolnshire - March 2016

History

 

I can't find much history on this one. All I know is that this was an established farm for some years before the owners moved to a new premises in the Lincolnshire area. After being pointed out that there is still a lot left here especially if they just moved I am now unsure as to why this place is empty. I had read somewhere they had moved premises but that seems unlikely. The residents were well known within the area and their family dates back to the 1800's. This was once a thriving farm. Producing Pigs for Bacon as well as other fresh produce.

 

The explore

 

Firstly thanks to @Mikeymutt for info on this place. Much appreciated as always :)

Visited with @hamtagger as always :D Really nice explore this. Infact I may as well say that I have got the bug for cottaging haha!

Everywhere we turned in this litle place was something to see. There is so much here that will sadly end up in a skip one day but it is one of those houses I looked at and really thought I could live here. Looking beyond the damage and the way it was, it has real potential.

Some really grand features, mainly the furniture. The house was lovely and dotted with age old signs that it really needs some

modernising. Nice and leisurely though, lots of noises, the wind banging doors upstairs, birds in the loft etc.

Anyway enough of me waffling, here are the pics

Amazing little place there, wonder why they didn't clear it out if they just moved premises? Must be more to the story otherwise seems a pointless waste...

You have a very good point, there is a hell of a lot left. Maybe someone died. I just noticed a sign on the back saying they had moved but thinking back not entirely sure if it was for this place or not. I will edit.

That's pretty cool, love the old bakerlite radio. I bet that would still work if it was plugged in, they're pretty robust normally.

Thank you, the label was one of my favourite parts of the whole explore. Love finding little things like that and the royal seal, well I doubt there are many of them around nowadays. :)

      Hi all. We have invested in a new camera and went out during the night to see how well it can handle the low light images. The result was actually rather impressive! So please enjoy the snaps we managed to get.
      It isn't a new area, but it is a good place to get some shots. Feel free to let us know which pic you guys like!

      Keep in touch to see some new places real soon. Cheers,
      C

      Falcon house. It's been in Swindon since the early days of this towns birth and has been sat empty and abandoned for 16 years.  
      It was said to be the very first headquarters for the well known company zurich, an insurance company, but was promptly moved to a more practical and efficient property.
      The old office block is situated in Swindon town centre on top of a car park right near the entrance to town, which is an eye sore to some but a worthy explore for us. 
      There was nothing much left, only old phones and some really old school computer stuff. 
      It was the view at the end of the video that made it all worth it, being the second highest point in the town aside from the john murray building.  What a view! 
      So please enjoy this video by my good friend and make sure to check out the channel! Have fun out there,

      Snowdown was the deepest colliery in Kent reaching well over 3,000 ft (915 metres). It was also the hottest and most humid pit in Kent and was given the name 'Dante's Inferno' by the miners. Regarded by many as the worst pit to work at in Britain, most Snowdown miners worked naked because clothes became too uncomfortable. The miners could consume around 24 pints (14 lires) of water in an 8-hour shift. There were frequent cases of heat stroke.

      Snowdown closed in 1987

      What's left of the south marston hotel, remains an empty, scorched shell. Not much to see on this one, and I am way to late but hey, it still provides an eerie vibe. And the photos came out pretty good too. Thanks,
