    Default Speed boat cottage June 2015


    Visited this strange house with @woopashoopaa after a failed previous visit with @lucan this house has been abandoned for quite a few years with the looks of it. But has remained totally untouched with so much still left behind .i don't know any history of the house. But was full with personal stuff. And lots of sheds in the garden and a speed boat. Here's some photos I took from the visit...

    It's almost as if the previous occupants popped out for half and hour and didn't come back - interesting stuff :)
    Isn't it funny how the folks that put my taxes up always seem to be rich...

    This is a cracker, the last shot rounds it off nicely. Well done.

    Doesn't look as though its been abandoned very long as there is a bottle of CIF used to be called JIF so that's quite recent and there is a Screwfix catalogue. I wonder if the guy went into debt and just did a moonlight flit? Hmmm we'll never know. Nicely photographed and recorded. Like that speedboat.

    Fascinating stuff. The picture of the boat puts it in context nicely. Quite unnerving that when were gone no one cares about the stuff that we really treasured....

    That's a tidy little Vespa too. Obviously a Mod/Ska boy used to be in residence.

    Does strike me as left pretty recently too. Got some cob webs and rusting of the bath, but not a lot + there's no moss on the speed boat or caravan, so it could even be only a year? Maybe less? Guard this one well, the Gyppos would love a poke around in there I bet! :P

    Well Jif became Cif in 2000, so it's at least been cleaned since then.
