    Default Slaithwaite cottages X2


    Hi all, on a randon drive around the hills I came across this site on a hill entering the Slaithwaite area. Wife was not happy as I quickly pulled over and ran up an hill with camera in hand and left her in the car for 30mins.
    I have looked all over the net for some history of these homes/farms but nothing.
    I had to enter the field via a public footpath next to a house, the resident was out in the garden so I quizzed them a bit. They told me the cottages belong to the farmer who owns the field but has a public access through the fields but have no idea why they have been left to rot away but they have always been empty whilst they had been living there.
    I thanked them for there time and wondered on, tad worried incase a angry farmer came telling me to GET OFF MY LAND!! I went for the look.....
