    This is the first house I've had the opportunity to explore so far, not an area that has interested me so much so far but I really liked this place, it's aged and decayed really well and had some beautiful soft light in there along with many items of interest. Visited with The_Raw, Trollface and PocFan1984.

    Unfortunately I know hardly anything about the history of the place, at the entrance to a long forest pathway there is a small shrine with a plaque quoting some dates in the early 40's. There were a number of personal items in the house, with a better grasp of Flemish and a bit more time could be possible to build a story from the contents but I had neither. The earliest dated document I found was 1898 and the most recent was 1978.



    A desk with books, papers and artefacts strewn around it.

    The Giant's Bed, the bed was maybe 11 feet long, something massive, bit strange!

    A daily journal dated 1898.

    The house was in a poor state of repair, found this in one very dark room..

    Thankfully no one was hurt and we could have a laugh about it. :)


    Plenty more rooms and objects to photograph here, well worth a little visit as although very aged it seemed to have not been vandalised for the most part.

    The high-res pics as well as a few extras are on my blog page, linked back to 28dl. http://www.unexposed.photography/Visits/AbandonedCottageBEL

    Also loved this place, proper little time capsule, that window shot is badass :thumb
