What can I tell u about this place? Well its a house, 2 actually but the 2nd one is crap.

I believe it was owned by someone called Charlotte who it appears had caring relatives by all the postcards & letters strewn around. Quite how the property ever got in this state I cant figure out!

The other thing I cant figure out is how this has remained in such excellent condition. Sure there is smashed windows & doors but very little graffiti & nothing seems to of been stolen which (without giving too much away) given its town centre location stunned me.

I know others have been in here cos there is a lot of staging going on but there is soo much to see! I spent 2 hrs in here & was still finding stuff, its 5 bedroom so pretty large. Its just a gem really.

Enough waffle

Need less of these abandoned houses - they make my eyes water :(
Honestly it's just one simple image setting me off. Spectacles again and the same pair that she's wearing in the school photo. How sad!
It's a lovely house that. Plenty of nice fixtures and yet in need of modernisation too. The story I'm getting with this is a girl with absent parents and grandma raising her. Grandma dies and the grand daughter simply leaves and vanishes. I could also be 100% wrong!
I think I'd be too scared to mooch around one of those - someone might walk in and my heart would stop. (everyone says 'Great - then we explores Sausages house')
Thanks for sharing.

Nice house with the nicest fireplaces. The letter next to the girl wearing spectacles was written in 1955.

Its a cracker, ALL the rooms had fireplaces, most of the bedroom ones were bigger than my front room one!

The spectacles in the 'school photograph' do not appear in any of the other photographs in the report, the pair in the case certainly do not match. The excellent images give indications of past lives lived in this place, lets allow the images just to speak for themselves - without flights of fancy or make believe.

The mention of 'Danish' in that letter, makes one wonder where some of these friends and acquaintances had originated from

Yeah like sausage said there is definitely a story behind this one but I cant quite piece it together!

Beautiful pics and telling of Charlotte's story while you were here. The pianos are quite beautiful and should be taken out of there if they can still be salvaged. My other favorite part of this house is the green fireplace with the mirror above. It would also look great repurposed elsewhere, in a hotel or even in someone's home who is restoring the property to the correct time period.

Firstly BG - Well done. Great find and pictures that generate thought.
Now, I really don't see what's wrong with anyone saying how the images make them feel or how they interpret them. They make me think about possessions and how unimportant they really are when all is said and done. Time is the real value that none of us have endless supply of - use it wisely. That's what the pictures say to me.

Thats exactly what I like in a post, I almost feel Iv shown too much (but it was too good not to) its good to have a bit of mystery to a place. It certainly gave me mixed feelings when exploring from the usual Adrenalin fuelled excitement of finding a place to sadness of the story to be told & astonishment of the unusual items that were left!

Thanks, pianos are always the last to go, they have very little residual value compared to the hassle of moving them! I know someone who is trying to get rid of one at the moment & struggling. That said its a fine example in excellent condition, I will be distraught when the inevitable idiots find this & start smashing it up!

It is interesting (to me, anyway), the juxtaposition between an explore and the feelings/emotions a place evokes. Dictums Strictus is right, there is the decay, and the history of a place, but personally, I don’t think there is anything wrong in being open to the feelings a venue offers. Flight of fancy? Maybe, but there is a story to tell, and like most stories, it requires active participation by the reader. Maybe there’s room for both?
