    Default Ferry House Fish Farm, Shillingford February 2020


    I bet you've all been dying to see what a sad mess the inside is now after the local morons had their way over the course of the last week, it shows just how quickly something can be ruined by loose lips that sink ships when it comes to Facebook. Hopefully the police presence there yesterday gives the owners a kick up the arse to secure it properly as it was an absolute joke until that point. It would seem the neighbours are quite rightly fed up of the sort of unsubtle morons that seem to congregate in places like this nowadays. It's such a pretty house that it deserves to be protected properly.

    Anyway rant over, after some of my plans fell through I ended up going down here for a very rare solo explore. I never usually choose to explore on my own as I just don't enjoy them as much however I'd had a shite week at work among other things and badly needed to get out and about. I got down there early in the morning and in as quick as I could, and once I established there wasn't anyone lurking around relaxed a bit and began shooting, trying to work around the mess created by the knuckledraggers with less IQ points than teeth.

    The large rambling house was converted into a fish farm in 1952 and then refurbished in 2003, it gained a good reputation within fisheries circles until it closed it's doors in 2018 after the deaths of it's owners. The property was handed down to family members but has been left derelict ever since.

    It's a weird place this as it's got a bit of an identity crisis. Inside reminds me more of a fancy care home crossed with a family residence, with an attached conference/function hall and swimming pool. The pool room is also entirely carpeted as well which is something I've never seen before! Luckily despite the mess that has been made inside there were still a few nicer areas to shoot, particularly the sun room at the back with the wheeled wicker loungers.





















































    Thanks for looking as usual :)

    It's currently in probate with the heirs squabbling over what happens to it. It's a shame that within that time it's been attacked by morons.

    That's a nice house with some mould issues. The electricity must be still connected as in the master bedroom the digital clock is working. Looks to me the house must be worth in the region of the 400K. The windows don't seem to be broken.

    They instructed their solicitors to demand I remove this thread instead... ;)
