    That's right mate. Looks pretty far gone, but the kitchen i think is intact, underneath the roof timbers. No open window round the back of the main house i'm afraid, and also no floorboards in the hall way either, just rotting joists. Dig out those pictures!

    Will do. I was still using film back then, and my scanner isn't hooked up - but I'll see what I can do.

    Incidentally, when I was upstairs it was easy to see why the house had got into such a state. While it was being used as a social club (presumably then, anyway), they owners had simply boarded up the entire top floor at the top of the rear staircase. I guess the roof had been leaking for a while and the timbers were rotting - so they simply stopped people from going up there. :(

    I can safely say the gardener has been replaced!

    It's all over.

    Some pics here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/4562171...7622887488119/

    They're in a jumble but some are from 2001-ish and, judging by the car, others from the late '90s.
