    Default The Crooked House - Hertfordshire - Feb 2012


    I have no history at all on this place, I can't even find a name for it.

    The splorer who found it gave it the name "Crooked House" and that fits it perfectly, cheers Trog

    That is absolutely breathtaking.
    So, so many relics left in there. It goes to show you could wander round a major asylum all day staring at the peely paint and never see as much as this. (Sorry I couldn;t make this one.)

    I just hope it remains reletively underground for long enough for afew more get to see it in this state. Kudos for not mentioning location in the report.

    Beautifully documented as usual.

    Superb, a real mix of relics left behind, right up to to about the 1970's, nothing obviously any later

    I love the advert for the "Gay life in Criplene" shows how much the world we live in has changed, It has a whole different meaning today.
    This is one house that needs preserving as the walls are lath and plaster which is deteriorating by the day, the stuff inside need to go to a museum where it can be appreciated and not stolen to flog on ebay.

    Really good photography as usual nelly. Right little treasure trove and not what I was expecting from the external shots.

    The Nov 7th 1919 newspaper (probably a keepsake for the owner given the date?)....I'd have read all of that for sure.

    The stop organ looks like it could play again with a bit of work. Even though a fairly standard piece for the era, the quality of workmanship is evident.

    Thanks for sharing.
