    Afternoon guys,

    I'm not going to ramble on to much about this place because I know The Hoarders House has been done lots of times but I thought id share my experience.

    So after going to the wrong location twice I eventually found The Hoarders House. I visited with a non member who was keen to see what exploration was all about. The warm sunny day was broke up with heavy rain and thunderstorms but this didn't deter us and we were quite excited about seeing what this place had to offer.

    This place is very overgrown now with nature very much winning the battle of the land. At 6ft I'm not exactly small but grass and stinging nettles were at head height and even with jeans and a long sleeve top I still got stung a good few times. Once inside, the ground floor is rammed full of old belongings, the upstairs is a little better with original floor actually visible. If you have a good look around you can still find some very interesting and rare objects and articles in there. The building itself is a beautiful '2 up 2 down' cottage with period features such as an old coal fire place/oven in the front room and wooden beams running across the low slung ceilings.

    History: I cant seem to find much history about the place only what you guys probably already know. It belonged to a Mr David Howells and he's wife Ida, Ida passed away in 1990 and a short time later Mr Howells left the property for nature to reclaim. It is rumoured the place used to be a milk farm with evidence still remaining in one of the barns. Up until a short time ago there were a good few cars in a barn, these have since been removed though. It is believed Mr Howell lives close by and still owns the property that he inherited from he's father Alf.

    Here's a few photos I took:

    The best shot I could get of the exterior due to being attacked by giant killer stinging nettles!

    Yes, has oakleyframer said all cars have now gone. Still a decent explore though for a relatively new explorer. Not to far mate, couple of junctions down the motorway and I was there.

    Mr Howells left the place a lot more recently than 1990, he was certainly still living there well into the mid 2000's as I used to see him occasionally on the way to college parking one of his many beat up cars out the front
