    Default Station masters house, Forest of Dean


    Good evening all,

    Well here it is, our first ever report..I will point out neither of us are professional photographers, feedback is welcome but bear in mind turning the camera on and off is about our limit!

    This is the old station masters house, built i believe in c1898..The railway closed in 1967...
    This is a friends place who let me wander around and take pictures...Its a very dangerous unsteady place, hence why we never went in.
    The section on the far left has caved in...



    Take note of the tree!

    The backside on this house is totally falling down, like somone has punched the whole middle out! its tricky to see but on this photo you can see through to the front side of house. Also take note of the remainding staircase and backdoor. Panning back from this angle impossible due to out buildings.

    I think your friend needs to get a bit better at DIY, or at least give the gutter a clear out! ;)
