    Petch House is a fantastic place to visit. I heard it is soon to be under construction so if you're planning on visiting, make it sooner rather than later! On arrival, I noticed all the windows and doors were boarded up in preparation for construction/demolition, however there was one window in the kitchen that was left open.

    Looking at previous reports from other users, the place has changed quite a bit. Most of the upstairs is fire damaged, however the master and childrens bedrooms are still in tact. The downstairs floorboards are slowly breaking through due to water damage.

    Ill post a few of the photos I took on my visit, the rest can be seen on my blog, I will be uploading over the next few days, stay tuned at http://urbexarchive.tumblr.com/

    Great set of photos. Certainly changed a bit. When I visited last Summer I thought it could be restored and become a nice house... looks like it's gone too far now though.

    I understand there's traffic lights on the road by it now as bits have been falling into the road..?! May go for a drive past later this week and see what's what.

    Definitely beyond restoration now. Its a shame, its a beautiful little house. Very interesting layout. Unfortunately the yobs have completely destroyed half of the upstairs, fire starters!

    You captured some excellent shots of what's left, thanks for sharing! I hate but at the same time love to see a building documented and ultimately decay through the years.

    I like your style of imagery. Quite dark and sombre. Almost menacing. Great!

    Up for sale at £75k!

    You'd need another half million to rebuild and renovate it though... she's a bit of a wreck.

    It is now collapsing. the property went up for sale with Knights Scott and Lacy this week and they started receiving offers the same day - the for sale signs have now been removed - so who knows what will happen to it in the future. They restored a barn opposite a few years back - although the only original piece is a length of external wall on one side about 3 feet high. Whoever purchases the property will probably demolish the whole thing. http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property...ferral&utm_campaign=[resale]&utm_content=[IP]
