    Default Meledor Farm Cornwall March 2020


    Im surprised that this place does not appear to have been posted on this forum yet...
    Anyway got to explore this place on a beautiful sunny day. The farm is nestled within very active clay workings belonging to imerys, so therefore is not easily accessible and its a bit of a hike to get there.

    Some history:
    The actual farmhouse itself was built in the 1500's and was once part of a larger manor house.
    The last family to occupy this farm was my friends grandparents who also owned neighbouring pennance farm (also derelict). They were bought out of their property by imerys around 15 to 20 years ago and bought another farm nearby which is still going, grandparents and all!

    Sadly the farmhouse is no longer accessible so i could not get any interior shots which i am absolutely gutted about! There was still quite alot to see here though.
    If you are curious about the interior of the farmhouse there is a goontuber who did manage to get in there a few years back.....



    Here is what the farmhouse looked like shortly after it was vacated








    And here is what it looks like today...






    As you can see quite a big difference, the front of the house where the lawn was is completely overgrown so couldnt get a shot.


    The rest of the photos....















































































































































    Thanks for looking :)

    What an amazing looking farmhouse! Such a terrible shame it's been allowed to go to rack and ruin.

    For an overgrown farm steading, that's actually really attractive. Agree that the granite-built farmhouse is unusual, particularly the chimney.

    I know such a shame its been left to ruin. My friend was quite upset to see it in this way. They had no choice but to leave though. Imerys told them to take there offer or they will buid the tip around them, and that's exactly what they have done

    A nice collection of photos showing abandoned cars and farm machinery and the farm house. Love it. Thanks.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.
