    Default Road Sign Chicken farm, Sevenoaks District, Kent (1)


    This is from my stay at Kent.

    Me and my friend (DP member) decided to get on the bikes and find a derelict place. We ended up here after getting lost in the woods! We had a good explore here and in two days time, I gathered up the camera and tripod for a return visit.

    This place is very interesting, I think it became derelict in recent years, there is no abandoned house so I haven't a clue on the history. For some reason, there are full of highway maintenance objects scattered all over the place. The local kids have damaged it pretty badly recently, still making it interesting, despite a creepy atmosphere. My friend's derelict places account is just called Kelan.

    I can assume it was chicken farms but because of the road signs, I decided to put it into industrial sites.

    So this place was completely smashed up all together and the toilet still stands! Even getting a flush from my water bottles. BTW the sink was smashed.

    Is it strange that they remind me of chickens?

    10/10 for lack of poor spelling effort.

    Creepy don't you think??? Once I got in there, my camera batteries were like "Nope"

    Last photo before my batteries died. I only needed to take two more photo's afterwards.

    "I heard that our local farmer had been stealing roadworks accessories -I didn't want to believe the rumours...
    ...but when I looked in his barn, all the signs were there"


    Fantastic stuff, certainly something different.
    Thanks for sharing :)
