    Attending a wedding in Ambergate a few weeks ago. Spotted the house while on a walk. So reminds me of a house that used to be abandoned near where I lived as a child. fab playhouse! Some travellers burnt it down

    Did not try to gain entry as had my daughter with me who was barefoot, but the photos are fabulous



    Told that lots of people have tryed to buy the house over the years. Story is that it s rented out. If it is I think they wil loose their deposit!

    A fascinating site too.

Been desperately trying to find out but living in Oz isn't helping my course! I'll be moving home next year (mid) and would love to get my hands on this before then!!!! Any help greatly appreciated.
    If it is for sale for a pound, its likely to be owned by a local authority or some other government agency.

    You will need to show what use you will put the building to and that you have the money to restore it, if you do not keep to the plan they will take it off you, well it does not become yours until you have restored it

    As the building is listed, if you buy it for a pound you HAVE to restore it :)
