    Default Derelict / Abandoned House A14


    I have just been relocated to Kettering, as part of my job.
    Whilst out walking my dog today I came across this semi-detached house thats been abandoned for at least 20 years. Its been stripped inside and heavily vandalised, only had access to one side.
    As far as im aware its formaly known as Middle Lodge.
    So I returned to take some photo's. Hope you all enjoy.

    The latest decorations in that house look to be late 70's/early 80's. Some of the wallpaper is 1950's looking. Bear in mind some people keep the same decorations for a long time.

    I've passed that many times going to & from some relatives in Higham Ferrers, & have wondered what it was like inside.

    I passed this yesterday, and thought to keep an eye out for it after seeing your report. It seemed that it was being vacated by "accomodation for members of our travelling community".
    I like this level of grass roots exploring, especially places that you pass regularly, it'd be rude not to!
