Hello,

I'm new to this site and I'd like to share a recent visit!

Derelict places are the creepiest places I've ever visited!
I've recently moved to a new village called Necton, and has some very interesting history and buildings. I and Amber took a walk yesterday to get familiar with the Village, when we came across a very old and lonely farm, which has a newly built Bungalow on the outside of the Farm, which also looked sorry for itself, with no one to accompany it. So today me and Amber decided to go to the farm and see if it was in use or not, which we found out it not to be.

I was hesitating whether to go into the derelict building or not, but I did! Thank god I did, because it was amazing, even though it was a shame to find it in such a mess.

Never the less, here's the photos I got from the trip!

If you have any relevant information of the place, please comment below!

A video will be to follow these photos

(Copied from my facebook page)

From what I have gathered, the original owner Tom, died a few years ago and since then the place has been on for auction and couple the fields have been sold etc. The Place has been left there until someone finds good use for it. In my personal opinion I see so many opportunities for the place! the place is a grade 2 listed building.

Anyway here we go with the pictures:

Thank you - a great report. I always love seeing farms. I just hope somebody buys it and makes it habitable again. I would love to live in a place like that.

Thank you everyone. Defiantly going to revisit the site as I feel I rushed it. I would have liked to have looked and search for more things! Also going to take my 300mm 2.8 for the barn owl!

Thank you.

Apologies for bringing up an old thread but only just found this.

I cannot believe the state this is in. I'm doing some rough maths here but I grew up in Necton in the 90s and was taken up to Toms farm to feed the horses in his field when I was a lad.

I'm now 23, so the house was lived in approx 15 years ago & I'm not aware when he died but it wasn't when I was still walked up there by my mother so I'd say a max of 15 years it's been empty, probably less.

I still only live in the next village along & my father still lives around 30 secs away from this!

Thanks for the pics!

My family and I actually lived in the original farmhouse in the 1950's when my father (USAF) was stationed at Lakenheath RAF base. The pictures are sad to look at because I have so many fond memories of our time there. I had rediscovered the location using Google maps years ago and have always wondered what the current state of affairs is. Hopefully someone has taken the farm under their wing and restored it.
