    Default Button Farm


    I know this has been on before but cant find it so made up my own title name ;-)

    No history other than its a farm well off the road that had no vehicular access or mains water so far as I can tell.
    The place is a little time capsule which I visited about a year ago in a bit of a rush & didn't really appreciate how much was left.
    So a second recent visit & I realise what a gem it is. We spent quite a bit of time in here on this visit & noticed things like ... the state of the main living room floor joists when viewed from the cellar which was a bit worrying. & a delightful outside toilet in an extremely well made stone hut which I walked right past previously!



    Oh I disturbed a barn owl in here which seems to be a re-occurring theme of my explores!

    A very old looking farmhouse just about to fall in itself. Nice photographs except the first one with two annoying twigs in the shot.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    Sorry don't do photoshop but maybe that's worth editing lol
    It is a lovely old house, most of its pretty stable but the bits that are going are bad!

    Nice one BG. Leave the twigs in, they are part and parcel of the landscape from the camera's view point. I like to get a proper picture of how these buildings sit in the landscape; and as (quite rightly) most explorers are focused on the explore and not the surroundings, those 'twigs' tell me a lot about that boundary and what it might look like.

    Thanks that was my initial thought. TBH I posted without that first pic originally then quickly edited & added it in, not sure whyt really just thought it needed to be there!
