Hello all,

Below are some pictures from my first ever explore to some abandoned farm houses near Newnham in the Forest of Dean. Unfortunately, I can't gather any history about it and there's nothing inside the houses which suggest how long it's been empty or why.

The houses are in literally the middle of no where. I had to drive up a mile long track and park up before making my way on foot. Walking and visiting these buildings was quite an experience - maybe because it was my first time - but it certainly felt like we were the only people left on earth. There was no sign of life anywhere.

I've been here twice. The first day we missed out on another abandoned building, so we went back. After the second visit, I learnt there was a further third building (perhaps with some history inside?) so I definitely have to go back.

Anyway, without further ado:

Lovely view of the Severn as you drive up the mile long dirt track:

As you can see, in the middle of no where:

No idea whether the barn is still in use. There was some bales of hay which seemed to be fresh, but there was no sign of life:

Thank you and I hope you enjoyed my pictures.

Lovely natural decay! It's great when they're left to die without any help from vandals, but a shame there's no personal belongings to suggest a story. Nice shots and I hope to see more reports from you

Nice. I used to live near Cinderford. Love the FOD. Never knew these were there though!

Hi, I don't suppose you have a copy of these photos still? They no longer load and I'm keen to see if this is the property I visited today. Would be interested to see how it looked in 2013 compared to now.

The OP has not been on here since 2016 so highly unlikely you will get a response.
