    Default Winspit House, nr Worth Matravers


    Hello! I discovered this website about a year ago and became fascinated with it, but this will actually be my first post :) I went for a walk this week in the Purbecks in a place called Winspit near Worth Matravers. As I was walking back from the cliffs (where, by the way, are some amazing caves) I found this derelict house. Not really sure how long it would have been empty for but as you'll see from the pictures, there's an original AGA, which I thought was pretty cool. Part of the house, possibly the bedroom, had actually been built into the rock from the landscape too. Anyway, a pretty nice find in my opinion! I hope you all enjoy.

    Nice pictures and not bad for your first post. What do you do with a Butt Chappie?. The house looks like a cosy one at one time. It looks like its been built into the hillside.

    One of a series of vulgar mock ads that appeared online at the time, based around actual TV ads / products and all containing references to human bodily waste. Probably the work of some gifted teenager who is now a senior advertising exec!

    Jodie; very good, informative photographs - nice to see the remains of the gas lighting and that all important exterior shot!
