    That's a good amount of photos but recorded well. But what a mess this place is in, you can see where the thieves have been, but some other rooms of the hospital are tidy.

    I do like derelict service stations. These are not bad photos taken with a phone. This place looks very old fashioned and I wonder how many sixties and seventies cars were serviced there. Pity you couldn't find any past photos.

    Visited with Gromr123. We met up with Prettyvacant71 recently to cover some more of the site and it has been sealed up pretty tight. Not tight enough for us to get back in the Chiltern Ward again though. I guess what with it being summer hols the scrotes have been having fun and someone has given the place a good once over. They have even gone to the trouble of closing the doors to the lift shaft, for very understandable reasons. As is the way it takes me forever to get round to doing...

    Not far from where I used to live this small village garage has been empty for some time & I have passed it many times without a second glance. Today I stopped for an impromptu visit. The place is completely open & despite keep out signs a few folk watched me from the pub garden opposite & couldn't care less about my antics. I was surprised to find quite a few bits & bobs still in there, it looks tiny from the outside but is bigger than I thought. The place has a sold sign up so imagine...

    Very common for the surviving partner to move into a single downstairs room to live out their remaining years. Nothing to do with loss of mobility in the many sad cases I have witnessed over the years and which were all located in out of the way places - just the sound logic of people who always had a hard life. It is far easier and cheaper to heat and light one room to live in than 2 or 3, certainly in a large, draughty and damp house.

    Took me a while to notice I went here not long ago! Some lovely pics, I didn't bother posting cos mine were pretty poor. Went there with my lad but did most the house on my own, the cellar was proper scary! Oh looks like they did have a bath though ... of sorts! IMG_4992 by Bikin Glynn, on Flickr

    Correction: Hoarders Abode. Last post from my week away. This was the last place I stopped at, Getting inside is harder than getting out. The house was recently sold and had all the hedges cut down so it's right out in the open. Room after room is filled with total clutter, it seemed to be left exactly how it was. The last owner may have lived his last few years on the couch. Going by some of the objects left hidden, he spent some of his life working on cars. A sad ending, no access...

    Old farm house in the middle of what I thought was nowhere back off the road almost hidden by trees. From what I could tell it was a home for an old couple. Probably either without children or children all grown up and gone. Looks like the man died first then the lady of the house lost her mobility and moved downstairs into the Lounge. No central heating, no water, taps, or copper piping. No discernible drive or access for vehicles or deliveries. Outside there was a ramshackle toilet, barn and...

    Morning, I drove as it's a few miles from the nearest town. I parked outside the unoccupied lodge and had a wee look inside. If you get there and figure out what the carvings on the pediment mean let me know. Not Greek. I didn't try to do more than poke my head into doorways and it seems the upper floors have gone but the lower ones are stone. There are a number of occupied cottages in the park and a children's nursery so a few folk around. My cunning disguise is that of a woman in her...

    Hi TravelswithJack. I've spotted this one and thought about nipping in at some point. Do you drive? Did you park right outside the main gate(?) plenty of space to park but not quite incognito.. Did you go inside any of the buildings and how would you describe the condition of the interior and floors? Thanks
