Wow.. It has been 8 years since I posted a report in here! :unsure::oops: I've been exploring since 2009 but just not really posted reports for quite some time. Maybe I will change that now!
So it is technically RIP, but it's all I got for now, and more keen to post newer stuff I've shot than old. Soz.

I have been driving by this place for quite some time on my way to my art studio. It was always steel shuttered and not do-able.
I then saw it was put up for sale, and thought this is my only chance. I had no idea what was inside.
I got in touch and the owner very kindly let me in to take any many pictures (and as much wallpaper, that's another story!) as I wanted.

Unfortunately it was not littered with furniture and artefacts, but a shed load of PIRS!
No furniture, but the light was great and there was enough decay to wet me whistle.

I thought it would take forever to renovate this, but he has cleared the entire grounds now, done a lot of ground work and removed window panes, and is cracking on with an extension. This is within a month!
He's hoping to turn it into an Airbnb place.
Hope you enjoy :)

Half expected to find some paperwork in the cupboards, but nothing!

Potentially the most minging bathroom I've ever seen. Still had to shoot it haha

I was a bit obsessed with this room, even though it was so empty! The light was so nice, and the ivy growing on the outside.

A main hub for the PIRS was on the floor was right by my foot here!

Cracking little explore, I'm bet you are glad you asked now.

Wow, that's really nice. Love Arts & Crafts houses. Did you manage to take any exterior shots? I'd love to see that if you have them. Good stuff and nice to see you again, Gigi. :)

A real pleasure to see it is being done up for re-use. Let's hope the Airbnb 'guests' appreciate where they will be staying. Shame it will not be a home again in the near future. How about an exterior shot?
