    Default Abandoned cottages, nr Newhall, feb 2017


    Here goes my first post...
    Found this pair of cottages by chance as we drove by.
    Little online info but it seems that the left hand cottage was lived in until about 2014 when a chimney fire forced its elderly occupants to move out. (Apparently it wasnt economically viable to repair the damage). The right hand cottage has been empty for about 25 years.
    Initially it looked like both places were trashed, (not a pane of glass remains intact). But on entering, we were surprised to find both places pretty sound, with all fireplaces present along with some several chairs, ancient tvs, kitchenette units and other stuff. Amazingly.....No graffitti.
    I dont know how old these are but the drab exterior cladding and corrogated roof hides the best features.....
    Beneath the tin roof lies the original thatched roof and where plaster was missing it revealed the timber frame that formed half of each cottage........anyway....heres the pics..DSCF4173 by Tazz & Moomoo, on Flickr

    It's surprising how quickly these have deteriorated. I used to pass them fairly regularly (and I'm sure the right hand one was occupied more recently than 25 years ago).
    Surprising that the whole plot hasn't been bought and some hideous newbuild put on there.
