    Default The Hoarder's Church, Scotland November 2018


    Another one from my recent trip way up into Scotland from the south of England. I had wanted to see this location for a good year or so, and in actual fact I had it pinned on my map before I even knew it was 'this' church in particular.

    This small church is located in a semi-rural setting in the south of Scotland, set in the middle of it's own cemetery. After it ceased to be an active place of worship it was deconsecrated, sold and converted into a residential property. For many years it was lived in by a woman who amassed a huge amount of stuff inside, although somewhat weirdly beyond the general trinkets and books the vast majority of the hoard was made up of children's toys including an unnerving amount of dolls. It's been on the scene a while now so has been thoroughly gone through, rearranged and mucked about with but it was a location I had wanted to see for ages so that didn't bother me.

    What did bother me was the atmosphere in here. I rarely 'feel' anything at all in locations however after leaving both me and my friend commented on how heavy it felt inside, almost uncomfortably so. It took a while for me to notice but after a fair amount of time inside the church we both had fallen completely silent, we usually talk a lot about stuff during explores especially in smaller places such as this but here there was just silence.















































    Thanks for looking :)

    Interesting photos, different shots, different angles but looks like the same old stuff. Nothing stolen and the church is still in good nick.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    It's not in that good nick sadly. The rose window has at some point fallen out and smashed into the floor, there is also a large area of floor collapsed near the bed area and a similarly bad area of floor on the opposite side at the door into the little room. Sadly it's falling apart and will probably only get worse over the winter!

    Yeh is a downward spiral for this place i believe. Nothing that's not happened before or again bud.

    What a strange place. I can see how it came about but for some reason or another it's been left like that. I definitely didn't expect the insides to be like that. A little creepy with the heads though and another I'd not visit alone!
    A hoarders house though - is that hoarding because mine's far far worse!
    Full of meaty goodness.

    Like all the hoarders' houses, no doubt this one has a tale attached to it and it's probably a sad story.

    I know what you mean about a heavy atmosphere - most places feel benign but I've experienced something similar at Sleaford Maltings.

    I used to love seeing this place pop up but now it’s been tourbussed to fuck it’s a shame to see how much has been yoinked or smashed up. I can’t think of anywhere else that gets rearranged more than this place!
