I have just visited an abandoned pig farm and know what comments to expect ;)
I am unsure of the history of the place, but the farm itself is not too old, the whole site is in a bad state, with the farmhouse being genuinely dangerous :lol:
I also found the fabled bike.
I have taken more care with my pictures this time, they are proper long exposures, I have decided I have been taking too many snapshots - no more! :)

We went sometime last year and although it was not one of our best explores we had a pleasant stroll and got some good photos.Its always good to see someone elses angle on a place.
That farmhouse is fun to negotiate around especially the upper floors:lol:.
Good pics:)

God knows
Oxygen Thieves are a bunch of guys from Nottingham - I've seen their work in abandoned industrial units around Nottingham.

Could have sworn this was in Aston, there isn't many farms in suburban Chellaston these days ;)

Yeah it is, I don't know why I put that in the title :confused:

I shamelessly plaigiarised the title, oh yeah... :)
like johno said, not the most exciting explore, but certainly relaxing and good for photography

Old pig farm, eh? I might just have been prompted to pop a few up of one that is abandoned in Aberdeen itself.

I never bothered before because it didn't strike me as particularly interesting at the time, and it was an opportunistic visit with my phone because I was passing anyway.

But there were a couple of things that might be interesting, so Ill pull them off my stick. :D

Saw some of their work on one of the buildings at the old Cawdor Quarry/Industrial Park site in Matlock a few years back aswell.
