    Haha I'm not sure it was charm, more good timing and luck! Mr. Martin is a very smart man and I could tell he didn't believe a word I was saying. I for one would never revisit this place, and I wouldn't advise anyone else to do so as it's rumoured he lives in his car on the land and sometimes stays at a nearby hotel.



    Excellent set of pics JSP :) and the only person I'm cursing is you Smiler!

    That's nasty, anyway I've got the antidote and I'm just about to take a double dose, maybe I'd better have another just to be sure, powerful lady our Rubex, she can make cabbies swerve across traffic just by whistling at em, 😁

    Thanks to you jsp and Rubex, I think they are updating the Oxford dictionary as we speak:

    “Creepy as hell”
    /ˈkriːpi/ /az,əz/ /hɛl/ Adjective, informal.
    Causing an unpleasant feeling of fear or unease, often associated with cattle carcasses strung up in farmhouses.
    "the creepy feelings one often gets in a derelict house"
    Synonyms: frightening, farmers, scaring, terrified, explorers, hunting down, kestrels.

    Great Pictures guys. I lived on that road until last October, so I have always been curious about Bleak House..... I never went in though as it is 100% true- Tony often stays there in a car. I'd also please ask any explorers to stay away. The bottom line is (irrelevant of what your opinion of the events in 1999 is) he is an eccentric, lonely old man that has Asperger's. I've met him a couple of times in the pub and spoken with him on about a few subjects. He's highly intelligent, but he is completely eccentric. He's been treated pretty badly by society (police roaming his land and all around Smeeth Road, toting machine guns on New Year's Day 2016, not to mention regular harassment by certain other members of society). He even used to have a stalker that stole his washing from the line and brought it back dried, pressed and repaired! If anyone is curious there are at least two decent-ish books available (just search E-bay for his name)that debate his character, the house and life up until and around 1999. So please, let's just enjoy the pictures posted so far and leave the guy to live how he wants to in peace.
    Treading lightly.... In a black white way.

    For what it's worth I agree.

About us
DerelictPlaces is a forum for people with an interest in the history and documentation of derelict and abandoned buildings to come together and share their experiences, photography and historical findings. Our military, industrial and historical heritage is fast disappearing under the pressure of regeneration, the need for new housing, and often through simple neglect; Our aim is to document these places before they disappear entirely.
