    Default The Masters Place - Feb - 2015


    First off, I have to give credit and thanks to Stufish for the tip on this previously unreported location - appreciated as ever mate.

    A beautifully sunny day in the midst of a spate of wet weather and off I go.... Tbh, I wasn't expecting much so was pleasantly surprised to find this little gem full of decay and plenty of leftbehinds.

    The decay is mostly down to the fact half of the roof tiles have been removed and neatly stacked in one room leaving a good percentage of the place wide open to the elements. As for the leftbehinds, well they are there in abundance as you can see below.

    The metal fairies have done their work but from what I can see, many of the everyday items remain as if the place had been truly abandoned by the couple who lived here .... I say 'truly' because as far as I know, this place is unreported and I set nothing up (aside from the photo slide pics) but found all sorts of stuff in place as if the residents had suddenly and simply disappeared.....I can only assume some tragedy took the both of them simultaneously and the house has stood more or less as it was left, rotting alongside their memories ever since.



    Anyways, no history but I have named it 'The Masters Place' due to the massive amount of vinyl on a label of a similar name I found strewn around.

    Please note, its quite pic heavy but I ended up with hundreds and could of took more! :)

    On with pics - full slideshow with loads more pics available here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/125506...94716402/show/

    Great find. I love your photos of the cottage cheese paper and old books. Even though I've only done 4 explores so far, old houses are quickly becoming a favourite.

    Yeah, the paper is a close up of the stack of magazines seen in the 'aftershave' shot and looks truly organic....I love decay but that pic actually makes me feel nauseous!

    Stunning set there. Tinged with sadness given the way the place has just been abandoned. Really brings how the fact we are just mortals...
