This farm house has stood derelict since I was a little girl, so 30 years plus.
It's badly fire damaged, with no upper floor, to the left side of the building.
I didn't realise just how challenging it would be to get to the property, not the palisade fencing , but the 6ft plus weeds, nettles and thistles. On arriving at the house my hair was completely twisted up, and wrapped in huge thistles, still stinging and itching now :lol:
Not much left to see really but I had wondered for years, what it looked like inside.

Nice that, worth fighting the jungle to get to it I reckon. Looks a bit dodgy though, what with a lot of the upstairs now being downstairs. And there just had to be a chair - they're like the cockroaches of the furniture world; when all else is destroyed at least one chair will survive.

Thanks guys! :)
Wombat I had the same thoughts on the fencing, maybe it's too dangerous to just leave open?! can't think of any other reason! :)

It could do with a lick a paint, I was surprised about the fence as well? Worth a bob or two that, surprised it’s not bin pinched:lol:, I hate nettles no matter how careful you are they still get you:mad:.
I admire your persistence and enjoyed the pics, Thanks

Love that pic with the chair!

I've driven past this on numerous occasions on the way to my mum's house.

Will have to have a closer look next time!

Thanks:)
