    Default Curse Cottage


    So a few months back Rubex and I visited a farm where the Farmer was arrested firearm offences and for shooting burglars. There was an old cottage, a farmhouse(no access) and a few other farm barns/sheds. We parked up and got out and entered the cottage, everything seemed ok with both of us photographing the downstairs. Rubex went upstairs and a few seconds later I heard her calling for me to get upstairs quickly. So i rushed upstairs to the room where she was to find bones all strung up. We took a few more photos and left the cottage, got in the car and went. Something just didn't sit right and we were both a bit spooked. We decided to go back and finish what we had started, back in the cottage to finish upstairs. Then had a quick look round the out buildings and farm house.

    As we walked back to the track we bumped into the Farmer who just happened to be driving up the track, he wound down the window and we were asked what we were up to. Quick thinking Rubex used her charm said we were photographing a pair of kestrels, he seemed to be ok with it and off we went. Never walked so fast back to the car, the engine was running and off we went. Later on that night Rubex was doing a bit of research and found out the bones were placed that way as part of some sort of old curse.

    on with the photos










































    Thanks for looking

    Nice set jsp.it's one that has been known about for several year around here.but one no one bothered with due to what happened here.and the fact everyone know he still lives on the land.fair play for doing it.not for me this one though
    I like to go where others fear to tread.

    JSP, who do you think set up the bones? bearing in mind you let Rubex wander off unsupervised and she is a Witch, I reckon you'd better refill her jug with decent brandy and stay on her good side, if can find one.
    Interesting report and pics, Loved it Thanks

    Not surprising really - Like any old property that has been exposed to the elements, this place has been full of mold spores for years. How one feels after exposure depends on the time of year, length of time in building and one's susceptibility.

    Nice photographs but I noticed not so many as per your usual posts. I have a bad feeling about this place. It looks like a nice enough house but it would be best to keep away.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.
