    Arrow Fox Covert Farm, Chellaston, Derbyshire - May 09


    I have just visited an abandoned pig farm and know what comments to expect ;)
    I am unsure of the history of the place, but the farm itself is not too old, the whole site is in a bad state, with the farmhouse being genuinely dangerous
    I also found the fabled bike.
    I have taken more care with my pictures this time, they are proper long exposures, I have decided I have been taking too many snapshots - no more! :)

    We went sometime last year and although it was not one of our best explores we had a pleasant stroll and got some good photos.Its always good to see someone elses angle on a place.
    That farmhouse is fun to negotiate around especially the upper floors.
    Good pics:)
    How come I always find the deep water, pigeon crap and rotten floor boardslol

    Oxygen Thieves are a bunch of guys from Nottingham - I've seen their work in abandoned industrial units around Nottingham.

    Could have sworn this was in Aston, there isn't many farms in suburban Chellaston these days ;)

    Yeah it is, I don't know why I put that in the title

    I shamelessly plaigiarised the title, oh yeah... :)
    like johno said, not the most exciting explore, but certainly relaxing and good for photography

    Old pig farm, eh? I might just have been prompted to pop a few up of one that is abandoned in Aberdeen itself.

    I never bothered before because it didn't strike me as particularly interesting at the time, and it was an opportunistic visit with my phone because I was passing anyway.

    But there were a couple of things that might be interesting, so Ill pull them off my stick. :D
    Do it safely, or not at all.

    Saw some of their work on one of the buildings at the old Cawdor Quarry/Industrial Park site in Matlock a few years back aswell.
