    Arrow Abandoned Manor Farm House (V. Pic Heavy!)


    This abandoned Farm Manor House is truly amazing, and was a complete nightmare...more of the nightmare later.

    It's part of a larger farm which is also abandoned, as I have so many photos of this place I will report on the farm itself later.

    All was going well as I approached and began snapping away with my main camera when I then found that the battery was dead. No problem I reached for my small pocket camera and carried on snapping away, when...the battery on this camera also died. I was then left with my iPhone to take what pictures I could. The camera built-in to the phone is, well.. CR*P! So sorry for the poor quality interior shots. I also had no torch so I used the flash on the phone as a torch. To take pictures I had to switch off the torch on the phone, stand in total darkness and then switch onto camera mode, point the phone in what I though was the right direction, take a picture, then check the picture, then repeat the process for each picture. After standing in the dark for over an hour the 'Hammer House of Horror' look of the place started to dawn on me..







    And now inside...















    The bathroom floor has rotted away as there is mains water pouring out from the plumbing. The roll-top bath has fallen through two floors down to the basement. Look at the loo, it's hanging from the plumbing pipes, with no floor under it.






    The front door.



    Down to the basement.. I didn't have the guts to go down there!



    And this is where I nearly dropped my load... I was standing in total darkness and took the next picture, I then stood there and checked the shot... look at the shaddow across the middle of the picture...


    On the way back



    2nd Visit - I went back this with a friend of mine, and a working camera flash! We did the whole place this time and went down into the cellar with high power LED torches. Here's a few extra pics of this second visit



















    Enjoy!

    :week::week::week:Thanks for sharing, looks a very eerie place, but one would love to walk around. Well done to you, think there's probably a lot of people that wouldn't make it past the front door!

    wow - rather you than me..
    the place looks so scary

    and well done on your pics - considering you were only left with an iphone to ake pics in the dark they aint half come out well.....adds to the effect of the place.....

    Find something in this world worth dying for, and spend everyday living for it.

    Great looking place, if rather like a haunted house, did you open the trunk in the 6th indoor pic and a ghost jumped out

    Not in Lincolnshire/Norfolk by any chance is it?

    Great explore, and the pics are pretty good considering the hassle you had.

    Thanks for the comments. The place is in Gloucestershire.

    As for the basement, I plan to go back with BIG torch. The last time I did a place like this with a friend of mine, we found in an attic room a fully dressed tailors dummy layed out on a bed. At first we though it was a decapitated body on the bed!

    When I go back, with a camera and a fully charged battery, I will post the pictures together with the farm pictures later. The farm is almost as good as the house.

    Mains water still on? Good grief! Water companies really don't have a clue.
