    Default St Crispin's Asylum Farm Buildings, July 09


    Having missed the farm buildings on my last trip to St Crispin's, I thought I would pop back and take a look.

    Surprisingly the farm still stands, derelict, smack bang in the middle of the new housing estate a short walk from whats left of the main asylum buildings.

    Here are some pictures
































    Looking up through the housing estate, the clock/water tower dominates the skyline, the farm buildings are to the left of the picture

    I like this. :) love the cobbles between the barn and the stable building. This has more character than the new houses, if I had a choice between the boxes and this, I'd go for this. :)

    Good pics, i do like this.

    :) Sal

    ps, Hope they're going to renovate it :)

    Lovely comparison shots of the old and the new.

    Photo 12 is a barn conversion in waiting I reckon - watch out Grand Designs...!
