    Default Denford House


    This old farm house sits on the side of a busy main road, drove straight past it the first time and had to turn round rather than walking along the busy road. This hasn't been lived in for quite some time, all windows have no glass and seeing other reports this hasn't changed one bit for a few years. The is some lovely old wallpaper and it appears to have been stuck on layer upon layer, also some nice coloured doors.

    on with the photos






































    thanks for looking

    Pretty cool! Looks structurally sound as far as these old farmhouses go.

    Great set jsp, the shots of the brambles climbing through the window and the beat up Belfast were my favorites the metal thieves seem to have struck again, I really dislike the swine who do this,

    Nice pictures, a few are moody and atmospheric. The house is in pretty sound condition except for the bathroom. Looks like original cistern remains but I suspect that there were original antiquated sink and toilet and maybe the bath that someone took a fancy to.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    Sadly H.J. from evidence in earlier photographs, the washbasin seems to have ended up in the same way as the toilet bowl pictured and the bath probably a candidate for the nearest scrap furnace.
