    Default Derelict farmhouse - Rothley, Leicestershire - 2008


    This beautiful old place is so set back from the road and nature re-claimed that unless you know of it, you'd never know it was there. My Dad wanted to by the place once but the owner is unknown. It was so quiet inside apart from running water in the pitch black cellar.

    Nice find, that pump looks interesting. Bet the house has an interesting history.

    My favourite kind of explore. :D

    There's some lovely old features in there. Nice one.
    Do it safely, or not at all.

    That's lovely, Gaara. Fabulous old range and I love the mexican wave of a roof on the outbuildings.
    Nice find. :)

    Really nice place that. It doesn't look too damp at all though with a few slates missing it soon will be!

    I hope you manage to find the owners because it's a lovely house and needs saving.

    Thanks for showing. :)

    Thanks guys

    When I took the pix it was a really galey day and I was sooo tempted to look in the cellar but thought better of it. It is surprisingly dry and not too frequently visited by unfavourables. I too hope it's saved, I pass it everyday on the way to work and always wonder what'll become of it. It means alot to me really, as I have recently moved to my area and had no idea if there were any places of dereliction about and then I found it.:)
