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
