    Default Buzzard's Cottage - September 2018


    A cottage packed with memories, all falling apart.

    Somehow I never located this until now. I got there early in the morning, not expecting a great deal. It's a fair trek down the woods. The outside has been cleared up, when I saw the inside, I knew it was worth it.

    It was last lived in by someone who appeared to be isolated & elderly. Even with the 1970s extension it is quite small. One of the walls have collapsed. The photos tell it's story best. It recon it's been abandoned since the late 1990s. The two sheds round the side are full of clutter. A Buzzard was calling above the cottage during my explore.

    Looks like the house has been derelict for a number of years. The house itself looks quite old. Nice pictures.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    That's a massive shame. I hope things work out for you.

    Hey I've been and done that before. You'll always be welcome here and I do understand how life becomes much harder. We wish you well and remember - come back if you want it doesn't matter when.

    I really like this cottage. The quirkiness of how the door hits a beam! It's random construction like that which brings character.
    I often find myself wondering about the past residents life. With this one I'm thinking a woman who once traveled the seas. A cook on a ship or even a maid. Her grand daughter would sometimes stay over. I'm probably wrong but hey I can dream!

    Thanks for sharing this nice little place. Looks like nature will take it and very soon.
    Full of meaty goodness.
