    Default The House That John Wrecked!


    Iv know of this place for ages but a few visits last year convinced me there was no access as its pretty secure & thought there was nothing worth seeing inside!
    Well as is often the case how wrong I was, I found the most awkward access & spent a fair while over 2 visits in here & was amazed what was left.

    To say its cluttered is an understatement, most rooms are 2ft deep in stuff!
    Photography was a nightmare, with extremely dark conditions & nowhere but piles of fabric to set a tripod I struggled but hopefully have done it justice

    So what do we know about John?
    He was a clever chap! a professor & trained in law, but suffered some mental issues I think its fair to say!
    He lived here with his mum well into his 50s, & when she died became somewhat of a recluse living here on his own in squalid conditions. I know for a fact that the kitchen & dining room floors had collapsed while he was living here & I honestly believe the house has not altered much since his residence.

    I am led to believe he moved in with his daughter for the last few years of his life & died in 2016, Im guessing the house has been empty a few years prior.

    Its a bold statement but I don't think any explorers have been in here!

    This is the only external, its actually a nice looking place with a good outlook although its difficult to tell from this pic!

    Damn - as I age rapidly here, this type of place terrifies me. I'm having huge clearouts just in case you lot end up exploring my abode..

    What a fascinating place. I've never seen a hand pump in a house. Are they normal?

    I reckon if the rest find this place they'll rearrange everything to give the arty chair shot, rusty heater and collective curios look for their pics.
    Full of meaty goodness.

    The pump was in a separate room adjacent to the side door out the kitchen, I assume there was a well under. I had a well & pump at my last house but was in the garden & the pump in this place was massive compared to mine!
