    Default Derp Houses Volume 2, Co.Antrim, Northern Ireland, December


    Part 2 of Derp houses of County Antrim, Northern Ireland.

    Three more houses that donít really merit a report in their own right.

    Derp House No.1
    This bijou little place was just outside Ballycastle on the main road to Bushmills. Not too much to say about this place.

    Derp House No.2
    Stumbled by this place while visiting a nearby RAF base. Again bang next to a main road and fairly empty but worthy of a few pictures. On Windy Hill Road between Limavady and Coleraine

    Derp House No. 3
    This one was just outside Bushmills on the Dundarave Estate. Again, in a very advanced state of decay.

    From the outside:

    A crazy amount of pretty old cottages there. I really like the first building!

    Others will know better but isn't there a strange Irish 'thing' where the owners of those older rotting buildings live nearby and allow the old stuff to rot and crumble away? It's a tradition of sorts??
    I'm sure I read about that somewhere! (or I've probably gone mad - that would be right..)
    Full of meaty goodness.
