    Default Heartbreak Hotel. Norfolk Jan 2012.


    Following MD's report I just had to go and have a gander for myself. An abandoned guest house on the Norfolk Coast a sad victim of coastal erosion and the effects of the North Sea.... bloody freezing cold day too by the sea..... I may have gone a bit pic crazy as there was so much to see so I'll apologise now if the thread gets a bit pic heavy....onwards and upwards hey ho!... Here's the front elevation of Hotel Fungus nestling a mere 10 feet from a 60 foot vertical sheer drop to the beach below....



    A quick arty farty shot of a nearby landmark





    These old armchairs are just left in place to rot .. and had a certain derelict whiff to them... mmmmm luuuuvrrrvely...





    Along the stairs on the ground floor were forlorn postcards sent from guests from around the world... very moving



    Here's a few close ups of some of the postcards..




















    Shux milkshake brings the explorers to the yard!!!..

















    That's all from Hotel Fungus for now... time to check out.... see ya

    So how long do you reckon it's got before the back wall falls in to the sea then?

    That's bloody good question Oldscrote... the lighthouse is actually on a much larger clif around 120 feet compared to the guest house where at one point they were losing around a metre a year....The Lighhouse was built in 1790 apparently.
