    Default Mock Tudor house, Derbyshire, Feb 2009


    This house was built in 1894, and is alongside the old wire works at Ambergate, Derbyshire, near the Youth Hostel at the bottom of Shining Cliff woods.
    I first visited about 10 years ago. It was a mess then, but has fallen down quite badly since. It must have been a wonderful place in its day. I' don't know when it was last lived in, or why it's been abandoned so long.

    Excellent pics mate. I haven't got here yet but have done part of the wireworks. At some point soon I want to go and get pics from here. Like the sink in one of the rooms. And is the the stand for a sewing machine in there too?

    Cheers,

    Sal

    Love this house...even the dereliction has a charming quality about it. Fantastic old mangle!
    Excellent photos, Purp.

    Thanks
    Its well worth a visit, though a bit dodgy in parts.
    If you mean the stand silhouetted? That's an old mangle. Where the sink is it was too dark to see anything. Gonna put a torch in my bag from now on
    We were only really there for the wireworks ourselves, then saw the house and i remembered it from years ago, so had to go look around

    There is something quite charming about it though i'd have loved to have seen it before it fell down

    What a lovely old house PT. From the outside, it looks in deceptively good condition. Inside -what a mess!

    Thanks for sharing your pics

    I think it's currently on the market for the bargain price of 1*

    *With conditions that it's restored as it's listed.

    If its listed surely the council should be breathing down the owners necks to get them to restore it before it gets any worse !
    I can just about afford a quid, how long do I have to restore the place ?

    Did you put the candles there. They scared me an awful lot. It is apparently an unholy shrine

    If its listed the council will allow the owner to cave the roof in and let it stand in all weathers until it falls down,or they usually do in (Derby)anyway as per the Hippodrome.Listing seems to carry little clout these days in the pursuance of quick buck development.

    Great photos of the dereliction and that old mangle says it all,nice work,
    How come I always find the deep water, pigeon crap and rotten floor boardslol

    I agree, the 1st pic does give you a hint as to how it would have looked in it's heyday.
