    Default Old Farmhouse - Handcross, Sussex.


    Out for a drive with mini-nutnut to do a couple of reccy's and he shouts "stop dad, just seen a house with no roof on it!" so back we go and all i can see is a big house with an intact roof o.k. out with the laptop and low and behold there it is just behind the big house!



    After a quick scramble under a fence, we're in! Hmm... says mini-nutnut "fresh tyre tracks in the mud" "better watch out dad" ;) Funnily enough, there it was, a silver merc,parked up.

    Excuse the shite "snaps" we were well behind schedule :(



















    There was a mobile home around the back that was being lived in, we assume, as it was very clean and had signs of life other than the car!

    Nice find that, nutnut. Love the chimneys and the porch & veranda. :)

    Cool, got any info on it? nothing special by a long shot, just something else a bit different. Killed 10 minutes and was acctualy a nice little spot, seemed very peaceful and secluded :) map link below.

    I did wonder if it had anything to do with the big y shaped house just above it? as this has been on the market/empty for some time and has recently been purchased and is in the process of being refurbed.
