    Default Home Farm - December 2016


    Home Farm is a model farm built to the design of Arthur Castings in 1900 situated 500m south-east of Minley Manor. Up on arrival it was clear it was a lot bigger than i first thought with many dwelings, some only partly accessable due to rotten stairs/floors but i got where i could, there were also many cattle sheds and a stable block. What i did love about this place was the vast array of colours to the brickwork, it really was nice with the added moss and greenery.

    on with the photos



    The court yard.









    Inside the cattle sheds.









    After looking in the cattle sheds i made my way into these 2 farm houses, both stairs gone but just made it upstairs to one of the front rooms, the rest of the floor looked to far gone in both.



    The toilet still had a seat cover on.




    I then made my way towards another farm house to the right.



















    Next were these lovely old stable blocks.











    And a final walk back round the rear of the farm.



    Inside one of the corner Buildings, the other one had a water tank high up.



    A small shed.





    Finaly the rear entrance.



    Thanks for looking

    That a really nice take on this place. One of a few places quite local to me that I have never managed to get around to visiting. Cracking pics as always, thanks for sharing.

    Nice character this place has. The stables and the barn are in much better condition compared with the main house.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.
