    Default Bleak Bungalow Lathom


    Hi all this is my first post here so please go easy on me :o
    I usually put my stuff on Instagram
    purely because of harsh criticisms i have seen newcomers sometimes take on some other sites.

    I cannot find any history on this place, i checked all over the net to no avail
    sorry about that.

    The shots were taken over 2 visits not long after i started exploring with my camera & 18-55 kit lens so please excuse any dodgy shots.

    Unfortunately The Bungalow had already been ransacked by vandals & scrappers so i just had to make the best i could of it.

    Also these shots are not new they are from late 2015, but the place still stands.(with notice to be redeveloped)
    i only decided to post this location because i have never seen another report from here or at least i couldn't find one.

    anyway enough rambling here's the pics:


    Exterior Shots

















    Weird converted Car/Hay storage device As everyone has in their back garden RIGHT??

    (Complete with net curtains)




    Interior Shots
















    the editing is a bit funky on this one sorry









































































    DAMN VANDALS



    THANK YOU!
    for taking the time to look at my first report
    I hope i didn't break too many forum rules on the way.
    perhaps some of the editing is a little OTT (sorry about that)
    but i was still finding my feet (& still am)
    also i'm not sure what the picture limit is & sorry if i went over it

    Hope to do another report soon
    :spinny:

    I liked that Miff, I don't think there is a limit on how many pics you can post, they were different and showed the place off well, Nicely Done and Welcome to the forum

    These were lovely! I really like the artistic quality of the shots (I'm also pretty sure that I had one of those bunk beds when growing up.)

    Lovely set and that would have been a nice place back in the day. Slightly too much HDR for me but that's just a personal taste thing. Great first report.

    Nice report, good to see a new place. A typical 60's/70's alteration/ruination of an early? Victorian farm building or ruins there of. Only one thing; this is a sizeable house, not a bungalow. Even allowing for the HDR, the decor is bloody awful - but then the DIY mags and glossy home mags were full of 'good' ideas from those so called experts! Trouble is schemes like that get dated very quickly. The car is a typical alteration to a MOT failure carried out by people transporting large dogs to dog shows and summer working fairs etc. Obviously a true working shepherd or game keeper etc, would just pile the dogs into their Landie or van, much more difficult for the 'Smiths' to transport their three kids, Gran, mother-in-law and four labs to the Birmingham Championship Show in their Ford Consul! Seen quite a few similar contraptions parked up at Large dog shows in the late 60's and 70's - but that's another story!

    Great photos. But the HDR got a bit heavy for me as I scrolled down them.

    Not bad for your first post. But the HDR doesn't work for me. I would like to see the natural colours of the building. There is a lot of pictures but each one says something. This place is in not bad condition. Worth a renovation but that garden is sorely needing a tidy-up.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.
