    Jeez, what an awesome find... Lucky you didn't fall through the boards or get crushed by the dodgy walls, you're braver than most of us for venturing in there haha. Funny how every fireplace there looks like its given up and emptied itself out !
    Always looking for adventure into the unknown...

    Excellent, love the sign on the first photo, bit of a no no with the barbed wire round the gate some one could hurt themselves. I have to love the pit props used to hold up the place, they look like they contravene H&S for a start. Can't see it being much longer before the whole lot comes down

    Judging by the placement of the acrow props and steel drums, this place has been shored up by somebody very well versed in securing dangerous buildings. Whilst shoring up in this manner is used to prevent collapse during repairs, it is also used to prevent total collapse during partial and ordered demolition prior to conservation works. In this case probably the eventual removal and replacement of the rotten ceiling/first floor beams. The base of the drum spreads the weight over a greater area and does not bend or bow like a piece of timber would, causing localised stress points and floor penetration. As for the barbed wire on the gate - you've been warned, so don't climb over it! Deserve all you get if you are daft enough to ignore the notice, clearly the path leads to a derelict and dangerous structure. But then warnings like this are not meant for Mikey and his fellow wanderers, as they say 'Who dares wins'!

    Very nice photographs Mikey, I liked this set especially. Nice to see the old tractor rear wheel grip aid in the last photo, could be a real bastard to get on and off in wet and muddy conditions. the property could have been two houses originally, but some properties were built with this arrangement as 'one' property in the original build - large farming families and their servants or even extended at a later date to house a growing family plus servants. Seen both setups in my travels, would have to see the floor plans to make a more detailed answer.

    Thank you fr the additional info as always.it's a real puzzle on the house if it was originally one or two properties.the upstairs could be repaired with a fair bit of work.god knows about the gable end.it's leaning out at an alarming rate
    I like to go where others fear to tread.

    Hopefully something can be done with it. The bathroom is massive.

DerelictPlaces is a forum for people with an interest in the history and documentation of derelict and abandoned buildings to come together and share their experiences, photography and historical findings. Our military, industrial and historical heritage is fast disappearing under the pressure of regeneration, the need for new housing, and often through simple neglect; Our aim is to document these places before they disappear entirely.
