UK Hobbits House - Aug 17

Recommended Posts

Although this place may look old, it actually isn't it was started by a farmer in the 80's.

Known as the 'Hobbit House'. The farmer took 11 years to build this incredible two-storey building, which features several turrets, dovecotes and stained glass windows built by a local artist. This was all built by the farmer with this own hands and form stones he found on his land. 

The farmer built this simply to store hay and other supplies, but rather than stopping at four walls, the building begun to grow, until it eventually became the unusual build it is today.

The stained glass windows represent the four seasons, winter, spring, summer, autumn and the four elements, earth, air, fire and water.

To give a sense of scale, the doors are normal sized doors. This is not a miniture house, it is full size.

The house was not built for a movie set and has not been in any movie. It was built purely as a hobby and a labour of love.

In a newspaper interview the farmer said "I just got a bit carried away!"

The farmer sold the land in 2000 due to the local quarry disrupting his peace and is now farming in Scotland.

 

The Explore itself was very edgy, after being told the new owner of the land was an angry farmer that didn't want visitors we took our chances. After getting stuck in the building for 30 mins waiting for the farmer to finish cutting the grass on the field the house sits on, we eventually managed a full explore of this place.

      A short little report from a little while back.
       
      Without going into too much detail this building is one of the more longer abandonments situated on the ground of a partially used hospital some where in the south.
       
      The ground around the building has been flattened and at the time of our visit workers were at it digging the land up or something like that. 
       
      After sneaking past the workers and into the building we spent a short period inside before the noise of wooden boards being cut filled the area. We got out before we couldn't anymore...

      Built in the 18th century Minera Hall was the former family home of the Dutons a timber importing magnate whose buisness collapsed when japan invaded Burma in WW2 halting the teak trade
      latterly in the later part of the 20th Century the hall became the villabe RBL club and now stands empty and derelict

      The Site
      Dating back to 1874 these works have produced sodium carbonate common in cleaning products, dyes, fertilizers and other such products.
      The works have been operated under Brunner Mond, Imperial Chemical Industries, and TATA Chemical Europe. The works were also responsible for "accidentally" creating polythene in 1933 during an experiment.
       
      TATA Europe closed these works in 2014 along with the attached power station responsible for power supply.

      Anzio Camp
       
      The Anzio Camp is situated near Leek in Staffordshire.
      The camp was first used by the US Army in 1943, to house troops.

      In 1945/6 the camp was taken over by Polish troops.
      After the war it was used as a civilian settlement by the Poles until 1963/4 when they were moved to a purpose built site half a mile north of the camp
      I cannot find much information on what the camp was used for between 1963 and the early 80's.
      In 1980 the MOD took over the site and it was used as a training camp for Regular and Territorial Army troops and also scouts and cadets.
      The camp closed in 2004 as it was deemed surplus to requirements by the MOD

      It was bought in 2006 by care operator John Munroe Hospital, of Rudyard, with a view to developing a care home.
      But the site was again sold, in July 2007, to a consortium of Courtyard Property Group and Smartwright Developments.
      Planning officers recommended that the planning application is refused on the grounds that the site lies within open countryside on the fringe of the Peak District National Park, which is designated as a Special Landscape Area.
      In 2010 the site was sold again to an Air soft company called first and Only.
