Rather spookily, there was a different door open this time.... I checked it the last time and it was definitely locked and had not been forced open... but nothing ventured and all that! And thankfully, nobody inside. Nobody solid anyhow... So here is another apartment in Mouse Mansion. Hopefully less blurry this time as a slightly better light but apologies, my photography skills combined with open mouthed awe + slightly shitting bricks at times = not the best photos. Apologies also for way too many photos... please don't send me to the pit!... if it's not cool I'll remove some it was just so hard to choose and so many wondrous and amazing things.... :) sadly, I was met by the bodies of dozens of bats....they obviously had no escape as they were all in the same part of the house :( I also included non blurry shots of the bookshelf from the last visit as it's ace and I know my last shots were bad but all the other shots are of one apartment. Hope you enjoy :D

Mouldy books...Aristotle on the top...fitting reading for such grand surroundings I say...what else would one do with one's time?

80s flashback sorry for blurryness but what was the 80s without a lot of soft focus eh? ;)

The flash at arms length was about as far as my fears got me into the cellar....

Nice find. Shame about the bats - if there's any left alive they should at least give the place some protection from the dozers! Did you leave the door open for them?

Thank you for looking everyone it truly is a wonderful place. And LittleOz, there was a window open already but the apartment is so big they'd be lucky to ever find it. I didn't want to leave the door open...I reported dead bats in the windows years back and told the council it needed sorting but the owner is notoriously hard to find and it never got dealt with...was quite heartbreaking to see you know...never seen so many bats and they were all dead :( are all bats protected? I need to go back at sunset with a bat box I think...at least find out if there are any living. Not that it would make much of a difference I don't think, the house would cost so much to renovate it's surely gonna be flattened and then acres of land for flats...progress right? :( but they were bodies rather than bones so they hadn't been dead for decades...not sure how long a bat takes to become bones but it can't be too many years.....

beautiful place and georgeous photos. I hope the Chavs stay away. The bats got in, must then have been shut in when they were roosting.
Next time try to find a skylight and a route inside for them to follow. Usually if they can get into the roof void they will squeeze out somewhere.

Thank you! One of them was actually dead roosting on the window sill..it still looked like a bat as in it hadn't started decomposing, so not that long dead. I noticed the loft hatches last time but the one thing that house seemed to be lacking was any ladders. I will open something..cheers for info.. good bat tip. Got to protect our little batty brothers and sisters:)

Why a house is ever empty I guess...either everybody died or some nutter bought it to fill it with cool stuff and watch it rot...the latter, in this case. So sad, it is still a magnificent house in it's falling down-ness
