    Default Derelict Farmhouse - Northants 2011


    I'll be honest I haven't even bothered to try and find out anything about this place, partly because I shouldn't have been anywhere near it in the first place and partly because I haven't got the time.

    VERY unstable building so I didn't spend too long inside, even less time on the first floor

    Either way its quite a nice little place that I came across whilst well off the beaten track doing 'something else' and I thought it might be appreciated here - Thanks for looking :)

    That shape being a large pile of unconnected bricks
    Seriously though, nice find and good pictures (not sure I would have risked going upstairs, I had enough trouble last week when I walked over an area where badgers had been tunnelling and I ended up with one leg in a hole up to my knee )

    Some people are like Slinkies. They aren't really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    You'll be fine dizzy trust me I am the resident whale size wise and I have been all over Lillesden school which anyone who has visited will tell you is a death trap floor wise...its all about sensing that the limit has been reached and going any further along the floor/roof etc would be foolish :)
