    Default Home Farm (AKA Foxlease Farm, part of Minley Manor) Hampshire, Jan 2014


    Hey All!

    What better way to start the New Year than with a 'splore, ay? Noticed this hadn't really been explored much before, so me and my friend decided to go and take a look, and well it was an amazing day!


    We had a lovely, if somewhat cold day, but hey it wasn't raining! A nice walk up a little path and this gem appeared..



    Access was reasonably easy, but the place wasn't looking too good! The houses were the worst - 2 were completely inaccessible due to a lack of floorboards! Overall it was a really good 'splore!


    Anyhow, onto some pictures..





























    It's quite interesting how nature takes over in such a short period of time, throughout the whole Farm little trees, bushes and general foliage have sprouted. This one intrequed me greatly, how a tree has managed to grow & survive inside a building!



    Thanks for reading! :)

    The inside of this reminds me of what Vimy Ridge Farm used to look like before the roof decided to get friendly with the ground floor!
