This is where Henry lived with his wife Mary and their only child, a daughter. Mary died a long time ago and Henry had to move in with his daughter who looks after him. He is 98 years old. After much persuasion he finally agreed that this, the family home must be sold.
Henry was a hard-working man with strong moral principles. He's been a prominent member of his local chapel all his life. Among his paperwork includes a certificate dated January 1940 confirming him on the register of Conscientious Objectors. Interestingly he must have had to attend a formal interview to justify his beliefs so had written prepared answers based on questions he thought the authorities might ask, along with character references. Also there was a letter dated September 1976 congratulating him on 25 years service to the BBC as a gardener.
This is not just an abandoned house - its a home. In this home are meaningful and treasured possessions but also a home full of memories. This was a sanctuary from the outside world, a place to lead a simple life.

Spotted this while out and about so popped in for a look, not a great deal left behind
In the middle of a small town on the Shropshire border
Had to be fairly quiet as it is surrounded by houses
Looks like its not been lived in for a couple of years
A stable block out back, loads of TV sets and old Playstation mags , one of which gives the name I gave the place
thanks for looking

not much history to find on this house , somewhere in the midlands
couldnt get a decent external shot due to the ammount of growth round it,
the house was one of those prefab jobs made from fibre board containing white asbestos
i liked the wallpaper in some rooms it was very 1970s
old nova in the garage and caravan thats seen better times in the jungle of a garden
bit pic heavy as there was a few bits to see
thanks for looking
The Air Base was the largest underground facility in Europe.
In the 3.5 Km long tunnels where 80 MIG 21 and up to 1000 soldiers.
In the near barracks where 5000 soldiers more.
This facility was really huge with all what you need (kitchen, power generators, hospital, fuel tanks, etc.)
The where able to work and fly with 60 MIGs for 2 month without getting supplies.
There is also an old DC-47 standing around.
