    Excellent, and sounds eventful. I love that old TV, and bonus points for the old calculator on top of it. Those two shots of the doll on the chair are superb.

    Fascinating - would be really interesting to know why the farmer hasn't renovated the property - given that these days many farmers are talking about diversification and preparing for withdrawal of EU subsidies a holiday cottage might be a nice little earner!

    Perhaps there are some bad memories associated with the place? But even so just leaving it just appears odd.

    Being something of a fan of the S4C police drama series Y Gwyllt / Hinterland it looked just like one of those homes Inspector Mathias would be called out to investigate in the farming community. Obviously from your experience with other farmers being called out is rather reminiscent of a scene in the series where a group of farmers surround him and look as though they are about to go off on a "wild west" style posse.

    Incidentally for those that have not seen Hinterland it really does get to some interesting creepy locations amd has a bit of an urbex feel to some of the places. Its often on catch up and available in English or Welsh with English subtitles. It can sometimes be found on S4C catch up and BBC iPlayer.

    What they did is classed as false or unlawful inprisoment. The old bill should have @ least given them a verbal caution

    Obviously never been in an armed or dangerous conflict yourself! The two Officers took exactly the correct course of action when surrounded by a potentially armed mob - Cooled things down.

    Christ that story brings back awful memories of Maison Boon in Belgium. That place put me off doing houses of any kind for four years, and I still struggle to bring myself to do rural farmhouses.

    Thanks for your comment Rubex. Totally agree with you about the sad vibes..... strange, as I've never felt that way at any other place?!

    Didn't quite hear what they were saying to the farmers as I was too busy getting searched and waiting to get the hell out of there haha! Got the feeling this was a re-occurring situation for the police, and in fairness they was doing their best to calm things down. But you're right, later we chatted about being imprisoned..... but right at that moment we wasn't thinking of that, all we wanted was the green light to run!
