    Default The doll makers house..Essex


    I made a solo trip here after a friend gave me a hint that there might be three farm houses in a row hidden up.as I arrived down the lane I was in a really remote place.the houses belonged to the farm once.the houses were in thre different sizes.the end being the largest then the other two smaller.the toilets were all in different places.first one,the big one was up stairs the middle one outside and the last downstairs.i guess these were used for the farm hands,the end one belonging to the foreman.and the other two just farm hands,wonder who drew the outside toilet unless they all had an outside one once and converted the house to put the toilet indoors.abandoment of these houses looks like it was many years ago.the smaller houses did not have a lot in but the bigger house had quite a lot in.they were obviously a keen maker of dolls and toys.there was lots of books on doll making and needlecraft and general craft.lots of dolls heads everywhere.some in bags still.i really enjoyed this.on the way out a guy pulled up in a suit and then the farmer.he was really nice and quite happy that I had been taking photos.the guy in the suit was an estate agent so not sure if these will be around much longer.although there is a lot of work to be done to put them right.





























































    The smaller houses

    You can't get better than natural decay, nature is a great designer, the folks who lived there must have bin fairly affluent to use crystal decanters as pisspots, great find Mikey, Thanks

    Contents are far too fresh - more likely from a recent visitor with a weak bladder or somebody who did not like the look of the facilities!
