    Default Vanity house - shropshire febuary 2016


    This place has been high on my to do list for a while , in many respects i was blown away with what i found and in many aspects was very saddened with what i found.
    The house does have quite sad feel to the place, i have seen many photos of the place and what really saddened me was how the place had been trashed - lots of items moved or taken and a general disrespect with items strewn everywhere.
    From what i can gather the lady of the house passed away in 2002 and the place has been empty ever since.
    One of the ground room floors has collapsed and i think the is a cellar below but could not gain access.
    Also on the upper floors you can see where the walls are parting and so this place will fall in to complete ruin quite soon.
    If you do venture here - take great care on the lower level room - wont take much to fall through the floor?

    Some photos on the day:

































    I have made two videos - this is a small one of highlights of house.



    This is long video with complete walk through of garden and house.



    Hope you enjoy
    :-)

    Really enjoyed these photos & vids - thank you. A fascinating place but you're right - something very sad about it all. It does look trashed but thankfully nothing looked vandalised which is good!

    Wow! So nice to get a good look around there, the piano is one of my favorites. I have a video of me playing the one at Geoffrey's.

    Great pics and videos Taz! As you say, this place is a real treasure trove :) I visited here over Christmas, but haven't been through my photos of it yet. I was surprised to see how much stuff there was left in here too. The bit where you didn't get through the gate first time made me laugh lol

    Well done. The short video you have a track by Celine Dion and We Don't Say Goodbye which I thought was a sad song to play but appropriate for the video. But she's accompanied by the Bee Gees (yuk).
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.
