    Hard to find but well worth the effort. “House of The Damned” became known as such due to an old paper with an article about punk band The Damned. No sight of this on my visit but I’ve stuck with the name as I thought would be ‘Sensible’ plus you can’t beat a bit of “New rose” or “Love song”. Absolutely no history on this one whatsoever. The place reminds me of The Lock Keepers cottage near Grantham in that it is similar in size and was probably lived in by an elderly couple and upon their death, the fact that the house had no road to it, no running water or electricity made it unattractive to potential new owners. The considerable farm out-buildings are still actively used by the farmer but the house itself has been deemed surplus to requirements. Structurally the place is sound and has a good roof on it. Inside, as you will see in a moment, it is something of a little time-capsule. On with the pictures…

    Here it is appearing over the hill…

    Quite a few out-buildings:

    Garden in need of a bit of attention:

    So on to the house:

    Windows still in tact:

    Lots of old papers:

    But this is the reason we came:

    And stuff…

    It’s all about the range:

    Put the kettle on!

    And take a seat:

    Perhaps something stronger?

    Looks like the Bovril is out-of-date:

    How about this cure-all for your cattle?

    Book at the window…

    [​IMG]img5200 by HughieDW, on Flickr

    Or some lighter reading?

    The Aga needs a clean:

    Not much in bedroom one:

    Slightly more in bedroom two:

    Bye bye house of The Damned:

    HaHa! I see what you did there but it should have a proper name and location. Derbyshire is too vague..
