I happened across this site whilst working. As a sales rep I get to drive around a bit and I after driving past this farm I decided to return on a day off to have a look around. The farm is on the Dorset/Somerset border. From looking around the farm it seems to have been a dairy farm which was confirmed by some of the farmers milk certificates I found. I did photograph them but decided not to post them as they had the farm name on them which would give away the location.

The farm was in quite a bad state of disrepair as you can see from some of the photos showing falling apart buildings and sheds but there was still some interesting farm machinery and paraphanalia around.

Gaining access to the inside of the farmhouse was a simple affair as you can tell from the photos. Inside there was lots of 'stuff' still around like clothes and kids games and books. There were letters and mail all over the hall and from looking at dates I would say the farm has been disused from around 2006.

From searching on the net about the farm I found that planning permission was applied for in Nov 2010 and granted in Feb 2011 for demolition of the house and some of the farm buildings and to restore the barn. I guess I got here in time before it disappears!

Nearby I found a no longer used quarry site that I also looked around.

Inside the building. Bizarrely there were two dead foxes in here. You can see them at the bottom right of the photo.

It's my pleasure :)

It was actually very rewarding, personally, finding something that I hadn't read about or been told about!

Come on, half the fun is in finding the places yourself. Do a little research first, the clues are in the report :)

Thanks for the feedback.
This website has a lot to answer for. Since finding it, my drives at work take much longer as I'm constantly looking around for new places to explore. :rolleyes: lol
