    I am unable to obtain enough information regarding the building other than it was a station masters house and is located on Langwith Maltings, Langwith, Nottinghamshire. The house has been completely vandalised and used as a dumping ground. The upstairs access has been partly removed and most of the floorboards have been removed from the upper rooms. The visit was done late at night in the dark and was a fall back from a failed explore.

    The well known Master's house for the long defunct Langwith Halt Station was built by the Midland Railway on its Nottingham Midland to Worksop line. The line and station were closed to passengers in 1964. The line was reopened in 1998 as the Robin Hood Line but the station was not reopened, the community being better served by a wholly new structure half a mile to the North, called Langwith-Whaley Thorns.

    That's a huge difference, thanks for sharing tomba. It must have been lived in then as there is no digital aerial there now but had a satellite dish installed.

    Might not be the most interesting building in the world, but the format of the report and picture sizes look spot on :thumb

    I used to walk past this place as a nipper when we used to go into The Maltings (just around the corner from here before it was knocked down!). It was inhabited in the mid 90s and likely a wee while beyond. ot sure why it would be derelict now, though at one point the wasteland on the slope down from this house had all been purchased by a builder for development into a new estate so perhaps this property was a part of that purchase? The recession duely hit and the estate never happened.

    The Maltings, now demolished was an awesome place to explore! There was worker's houses to the rear and the place itself was massive! It had large halls, offices, ovens you could crawl through, storage rooms full of grain (and rats as big as your head!), fire extinguishers (may have let a few off ;0) ) a high tower/silo, loft space with walkways running through the rafters - we spent loads of time in there as kids in the early 90s - had a few close encounters with the local bobbies and the guy who still lived in the foreman's house on site (also now demolished.) but never did/came to any harm (though there was a lot of asbestos on site we were told later), though we did no damage to disturb any asbestos the guys that would later prove to be the site's downfall may not be able to say the same.

    Sadly, it went beyond petty vandalism when the local pikeys realised there was little/no security and it was well and truly gutted - up to the point of the lead, pieps, slates removed, and eventually the roof beams dragged down (using 4x4s!) - it was demolished for safety reasons in the end.

    Here's an old photo of the place that also shows a map - you can see the Station Master's house from this rep on the map too, the Station house is all that remains of this site.
