    Default Wicken House and Sheds - Bucks - Aug 2013


    Sorry, I've not been exploring for ages, and am neglecting my Derelict Places post duties lately due to an increased workload and a new addition to the family. But I'm still trying to keep involved as and when I can.

    I recently had a few hours to spare, so me and two other forum members took a wander over to Bucks and found this little place. (Shot_in_the_Dark and Steve2109).

    This was a very relaxed little mooch - and my immunity to stinging nettles really came in handy, I got stung dozens of times here but other than the first 3 or 4 seconds I dont feel a thing


    There's an old house here (in quite good condition), and a few out-houses. Looks like there's an application in place to flatten it all though :(


    There were a few book, documents, newspapers, etc here. The newest date shown was 1999 so presumably that's when it was abandoned. I'll have a full set of photos on my website later this week if anyone wants a look (www.derelict-omj.co.uk)















    Warning, the next photo is awful... :p







    Who has black saucers...?

















    Thanks for looking. More photos to follow I hope... :)
    Why go through a door when there's a perfectly good window?

    cheers
    Those who destroy what's been left behind, are those ignorant enough to believe that history only belongs in museums and books.
