    Default Golcrest Boarding Kennels/Farm. 10/09


    Went with sarah and scrub.

    after being kicked off one site that would have have been epic and on to another site, we came a cross a drive way that was blocked off by some motorway barries.
    curiosity got the better of us, so we parked up and took a look.

    A small walk past the barries and we came to a house with a set of big black gates, the house was not boarded up but bricked up. every window, every door, every enterance. even the little hatch to the space under the floor.
    the grounds of this house was over grown but you could tell it was once a much cared for land and in the back was a garage, well.
    at first we thought it was then it turned out this place was once a kennels.
    the hole area looks like the owners just up and left, there was old farming tools, bags of crushed cans, best of bread rosets every where.

    on to the pics, they will show you better than i could describe.

    The Kennels still had bedding







    1. The cages



    2. Hoes





    3. Random mirror



    4. Random bits of stuff









    After a house or so walking round the old kennels, we noticed there was a barn next door that looked empty, throught the hole in the fence and we came to some old farm buildings and the old farm house.

    This room looks like people have been keeping the floor clean to sit down and stuff ;)[*]

    Lovely little house, but how bizarre to see it all bricked up like that! Love that press thingy in the garden. Cool find! :)

    Love the photos, especially the two with the staircase and the one below it with the floorboards. :)
