    I happened across this little two-up/two-down place on the way to the main explore one day. Got some reasonable pictures so thought I’d stick a report up. This bijou house is in the undergrowth by the A1 just outside Stamford. I’d previously spotted it while driving down the A1 and subsequently located it on Google Maps. It was probably one of the small estate houses for the near-by Wothorpe Estate. Nothing spectacular but enough to hold your interest for ten or so photos.

    So my hunches were right…

    Nothing fancy on the fire-place front:

    The only thing I found in the house were two little larders. This is the first of the two. The date on the Tesco pork sausage-rolls (other sausage-roll providers are also available) was 14th March, so pretty recent (unless, of course) the '12' on the packet refers to 2012). Was a local tramp using this as their home?

    The lath-and-plaster ceilings are on the way out:

    The second of the down-stairs rooms appears to have had two fireplaces:

    And here’s that second smaller larder:

    Up-stairs the floor needs a little attention:

    Has the roof been stripped of tiles or should it be like this?

    The dormer windows have gone:

    And finally the obligatory range of small out-buildings:
