    Default The House In The Woods.....April 13


    This place has been covered before,and is realy hitting rock bottom,,,as myself,Shatners,MrToby,Shush and 3 non members made our way up through the trees,it didnt look to be what we were expecting,a mass of rubbish,various sheds,and the contents of the out buildings and the houses contents scattered everywhere...was one of those moments where you raise your eyebrows and think "whats the point in going any further?"......glad we did though..

    The inside is in equaly bad state as the outside,,,well,worse....but we started having a propper look around,and the history was coming out....in a nutshell,this house belonged to a couple,the gent a proffesional pianist,the woman a teacher,they had a young son,who sadly died of cancer at 6 years of age....we are not sure what happened to the husband,nor that of the wife/mother...very sad to see there belongings and personal items left like this...





























    Thanks for looking..

    Always new stuff to see on each visit. Was the laptop still there?
    Why go through a door when there's a perfectly good window?

    Post Hoarders House in the Woods - April 2013


    Explore number two in the excellent company of Mr Toby, Skanky Pants, Shush and Auntie Pat.

    A very sad old place, the home of composer Ipolit Motchaloff, his wife and their son who sadly dies at the age of six from Lukhemia. Theres a whole load of documentation covering his diagnosis through to a letter from the doctor confirming his cause of death, all very sobering.

    An absolute treasure trove of bits and bobs and a great way to spend a few hours looking at the gems in amongst the clutter.

    Thanks for looking.

    An eagle eyed Shush found this photo of the place as it looked back in the day with a shot from the current state behind.
