    Default The Folly Inn, March 2020


    Sorry to jump on the bandwagon @Fluffy 😂

    Seeing a recent report on this place and searching for something to do during the corona times, this seemed an ideal place to isolate away from the world and enjoy the urbex world.

    I have to say, I have never come across a place full of so much stuff! Unfortunately it does appear that kids have already been in and smashed everything they could get their hands on leaving the floor completely covered in some areas.

    A great explore none the less, with the highlight for me being such a petrol head was the old american limo parked outside. In a rather sorry state for itself, but I do wonder if it would actually run again if the missing parts were re added 🤔

    Fluffy covered this on another thread but didn't give much details about the limo. Aha, its a Lincoln. The seats are still in good condition. But missing is the instrument panel and a steering wheel. The lever where the steering wheel should be tells me it has an automatic transmission. Connect a battery, test for spark and see if the engine will turn over.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    Yeah seats were in good nick, footwells in the back were a bit flooded mind.

    Yep, automatic and gear selector still worked.. very tempted to stick a battery on and see what happens ��

    Ahhhh if only I wasn't so mechanically naive! Haha.

    Weirdly, UrbexDevil, I can't seem to view your photos? Have they moved from your image hosting site or anything, or is the issue my end? I'd love to see your photos as a comparison to mine.
    Glad you had a good day bud.
    Are you local to the area?
