    Default Derelict House and Stables.


    I was on the way to an explore in North Norfolk when I spotted this little derelict house at Smallburgh near North Walsham. Needless to say the first explore never materialised, funny how things take a complete and utter change of tack!!!...the Pics........ Looks like something out of a Miss Marple Movie. A little Stable block Maybe? A little Peek in the Door.. A lovely rustic look to the building? Oil Tank Cor Everest would be proud of this as an ad for Double Glazing The inside of the stables... It was a lovely little Country house although there was absolutely no way in and it was not for the lack of trying to find any.:)

    And a dreadful thing from the cliff did spring. And its wild bark thrilled around. His eyes had the glow of the fires below. Twas the form of the Spectre Hound. 'Ha' yer fa'r got a dickey, bor?' 'Yis, an' he want a fule ter roide 'im, will yew cum?'

    Stables. Change of tack. Yes, very witty. :D

    For some reason, looking at this makes me a tad depressed. I wonder what happened to the owner and the horses. :(
    Do it safely, or not at all.

    Oh, what a beautiful cottage! Seeing the flags in the stables makes me think that it was used as a makeshift bar for a party at some point. What a lovely thought!
    Nice find, Shucky. :)

    I was a bit dissapointed I could not get in but there really was no way. The Cottage looked to be at least 200 years old. Not sure about the stables though.:)

    I thought that I recognised this place - I photographed it several months ago and was lucky enough to get inside the house after tracking down the owner and a bit of gentle persuasion.
    It was pretty empty inside but upstairs full of cobwebs and torn curtains. I had to get a move on because the owner hovered over me whilst I was taking pictures. Interesting pump in the back garden.
    There used to be an old caravan up the side of the house which has finally disappeared after many years.
    The owner told me that apparently it used to be the village shop many years ago but I have never checked this out.
