    Very nice set of images Mockingbird. The real story here is your image of the 'Naturalisation Certificate' and the April 1964 date. Very stressful times back then for some people!
    Thank you Dirus, im glad you was able to notice what I captured aswel as the memories :) good insight into the lanterns too! :)

    You are right there was an overwhelming amount of stuff there, it sometimes hard to capture the "full story" when theres that much, I should think I came away with 200-300 images.
    I spent a particularly long time leafing through photo albums which were very personal.
    Nicely captured btw
    Well that does suck, had no idea it was gone! then again I haven't traveled that way for months now :(
    Strange the barn and caravan remain though if the house is rubble!

    Yes so much stuff inside here, it carried on when I was reading all the paperwork and such, upstairs empty but downstairs that first room was so packed and so much left to the elements if I remember correctly :(
    I walked away with alot of images and had to break it down for this report, but still some of my favourite photos was taken inside here, (minus the caves ive been in and mountains i went too last year).

    Yes the photos! how many! most of the documents was everywhere, shame upstairs was rather bland considering, but downstairs certainly made up for it, looking at the names and doing research on who lived there, it was rather brilliant though. Thank you glad you liked my photos! :)

    [QUOTE=mockingbird;352262 I did really try here where as half the time its a walk in an out job :)[/QUOTE]

    This report has taken me back to remembering the very early '60's when the countryside seemed full of abandoned properties and we were just nosey buggers - Door open, in you went for a shufti. However this was no way exploring as one does today; just as MB states a 'walk in and out' job if the door was open. But sometimes; on a very few occasions, the photographs and documents brought one to a sudden stop and you started thinking, because all those particular properties had two things in common (when you read the evidence in the photographs etc.) 1/ The last occupant was either an old lady or man, the last survivor of the family that lived in the house. 2/ All their children had died, serving in WW2. Although I was privileged once to find an old cottage; way out in the wilds of North Yorkshire, where the two brothers of the resident family had perished on the Western Front in WW1. In this instance I passed my info onto the Regimental Association and the small archive was eventually saved to honour the brothers.

    This is rather sad. Excellently captured.
    It's rather strange seeing that TV and combi DVD/video. It doesn't seem that long ago that those were new.
    The boxing Sooty and Sweep is somewhat odd.

    A real shame it's now gone.

    Loved looking through your shots of the old photographs, the 3 kids in masks sitting on the sofa looked rather sinister but then clowns always do that for me lol. From what BG says its all gone now:( well hope someone saved some of its memories by collecting up a few bits and pieces before it got demoed, but then maybe just explorers pic's are all that remain?
