    Default Aldridge's Mill House, Brecklands, Norfolk (2)


    Hi again,

    On Tuesday I went up to a village which had a potential on my bike and I came across this place, I took a look through the driveway and approved, I got the feeling it was still being lived in so I decided to head back and do research.

    Now i'm back, I just went there only a few hours ago in the crack of dawn, The original house owner died last Christmas 2013 and since then he's house is derelict.

    His house is vertically untouched, I was lucky to even find entry point. Do be aware that this place reeks of tobacco and also has a failing smoke alarm above. In general, the atmosphere isn't pleasant!

    His outdoor sheds are certainly better than the house.

    Enjoy:

    The door was originally shut, the opening smell was diabolical!

    Same room as above.

    I got a shock after hearing a beep up the stairs but it was only the smoke alarm.

    The house now needs more than one Hoover.

    This is nicely recorded. What a stuff there is remaining. You say in your report that there was a strong smell of tobacco. Would that be cigarette or pipe? Because I spotted a possible tobacco jar under the piano and also in pic 014 and a tobacco tin on the arm of the armchair in pic 018. I noticed in pic 005 a pair of crutches, looks like his health was failing. It looks like he did a lot of work in his workshops at one time seeing what's contained in it. In pic 016 did you have a look in the trunk and suitcase?

    It was a pipe smell, I had that all in the description but it got removed by the Admin. I don't think I'll say much else. I didn't look in the suitcase or the wardrobe. I couldn't be in that room for long because the smell was really strong.

    Thanks for that information. He was a pipe smoker so that's why he lasted that long. My grand dad was a pipe smoker and he died at 95 - I am a pipe smoker as well. Thanks for the link to the express.

    I returned to the place today and found a few things got moved around but I found the old pipe. I also found brown cigarretes.
