    Default Forest Edge Farm


    I haven't been on here for a while to be able to post anything so I'm hoping this is a new find. I'd had my eye on it for a while and just needed the precious time to give it a look over. The old farmhouse itself is sealed up tighter than Tupperware with metal shutters everywhere but the barnyard has an assortment of buildings and somebody was still using them for storage but as nobody was about it was a great opportunity to peruse the dereliction and decay.

    Smashed windows could be the obvious reason the house had been secured.

    The yard was overgrown with high brambles and weeds and the barn and stable block opposite were in a poor state compared with the main house.

    The cow shed was similarly on that same downward spiral.

    Not a great deal to see but a nice little explore despite there being little in the way of anything but decaying timber and collapsing roofs and piles of rotting manure.

    Thanks for looking.

    I'd be a bit careful exploring the barn, what the hell is keeping it upright I couldn't spot, I enjoyed the pics, Thanks

    I found something like this the other day. Regretfully I didn't check the outbuildings since the main house was sealed. Nice find. :)

    I'd like to know as well as it appears to be weatherproof from the outside so it could be quite well preserved.

    Several roof timbers had completely collapsed at one end of the cow shed otherwise it was really all solid ground/concrete floors. I certainly wasn't getting up on any roofs.

    I think those barn timbers would carry a health and safety warning in high winds.
