    Default Newbie's first find.


    Hi all after browsing this site until the early hours last Friday i thought i'd join up, as with us all i have a obsession with old buildings and the intrigueing history behind them. After reading a report on skidbrooke church we thought today would be a good day to explore. On our way we discovered this little gem in a very poor state indeed, i don't know any history behind the place but a good find all the same.



    Looks a bit drafty.

    The outside looking in.


    Anyone know a good roofer.



    The place was full of old fridges and freezers bizarre.

    The upstairs.



    Turn the light off on your way out.



    And a few of our original destination Skidbrooke church.










    That's it for now folks hope you like my first report........Hels x

    That's much better, ta.
    No signature due to chronic lack of imagination, creativity and wit.

    the little farm house i found I try and get the address for you ....i had a feeling when i was there of a old man and a very bad head that lasted the whole day and night , i felt like the man who lived there had died of a brain tumor or something very odd !! will go and ask questions at a later date i think but if anyone knows of anything would love to learn more , i maybe totally worry about the place but the feelings i got are still with me today so really need to find out more !x
