I have a good explore mate (who's name I won't mention) who once gave me some stick for exploring derelict houses, so with this post I can actually stick two fingers up at him, because if I hadn't bothered to go up and push the door of this normal looking derelict 3 story house then I never would have found the gold mine that lay behind the boarded up windows.

I can only think it was a TV repair shop at one time, the newest stuff I could find inside dated from about the mid to late 80's.

Sorry it's a bit pic heavy and sorry for the flash photos, not enough time to fanny about with the tripod, and please please don't PM me asking where it is, because after poor Mooksters Hoarders House fiasco I will not be spilling the beans :(

Great for driving up to, loading contents into an estate car, then selling contents for a modest or negligible profit on eBay.

Some would call that theft, I'd call it preservation. It must be worth enough I know there's a market for retro TV sets, and they arnt cheap! And I really want that motorbike.

What a goldmine. I don't suppose you tested to see if that Game & Watch still works? Thanks for posting, I know even that's a risk!
