    Default Butchers Field, Essex


    Driving about looking for the usual "signs of absence" when I came across the usual "Private Property - Keep Out" signs and those temporary wire barriers, so I had to take a look.

    Found a very old detached 3 bedroom place. No floorboards upstairs and even the stairs had been taken! The place was home to a large flock of white doves, I think they were. The entire ground floor was about 1 inch deep in guano and feathers. I only stayed for a few minutes to whip off the shots, having asthma I didn't want to set it off with all the poop and feathers.

    I think the place has been like that for a good few years now, suppose just waiting for a buyer for the land.

    Worth a nose if you happen to be in the Braintree area.





    One of the current residents!


    Nice scorpion I thought.


    Take a look at the writing on the wall. Just about sums up the intellectual level of those beloved chavs!


    One of the few spots where there was no guano.


    No stairs!

    Looking at the first two pics - they didn't go in much for windows when they designed that place!
    Good capture of the dove in pic 3!
