    Hi all, first report so hopefully everything goes smoothly. I'm no photographer, just have a fancy phone camera and a love to explore...

    I have not been able to find out any history on this house. It could possibly have been derelict for decades, but I'm unsure. Some items such as the Dr Who annual were from the 70's but then the Darlows for sale sign and video cassette suggests later maybe? I think we made our way to the house, from what could have been the hardest route possible! Through a forest around the back and then dense thick brambles. It would have been a lot easier to jump over a wall from the school the other side, but the time we went was during school hours. It's a strange building, as when we first went in, we discovered that it was a lot smaller than what we perceived from the outside. So further investigating found us heading further into the brambles, around the side and jumping through an open window to find what was a larger(and possibly fancier) second section to the house completely cut off from the first section. Anyway I'll let the photo's do the rest.

    Thought this was an old TV, but it turns out it was a projector!

    That palm tree wall! I love that chandelier shot, love the fact it's still clinging on for life.
    Shame such a beautiful place is so trashed

    Love those palm-trees, they were really going for the "giant alien spider zapped by radioactivity and slowly dying" look!

    haha! Love that description.

    What do you folks think of my first report? Have I done a worthy enough job? I had a lot more photo's but I picked my 30 or so best/favourites. I got a few more reports I could upload...

    Well it's not THE most amazing location in the world, a bit of a wreck, but you've done a good job of capturing what is there to be seen, picked out the worthwhile details, all-in-all a decent first ever report I'd say.
