    Mission Details:
    On our way back from Wales we nipped into these two blinding cottages in Shopshire, Plough farm house in Worthern and another one not far in Leigh. The first one was a right derp, elements of "hoarding" evident, but some real gems. It had a eerie feel about it, and some real relics like the television and wireless, and original hoover. The second was more pristine, looked not long abandoned and had freaky stuffed animals. A worthwhile 2-stop on our way back from Wales, and swift movement left time for a indi-derp after. Thanks to @BrainL, @Lancashire lad and @JPexplorer for intel - the one in Belper now seems pale in comparison.

    Target Details:
    Not much is known about either site, rumours are Plough house farm was occupied by a married couple and his mother their names were Janice and Andrew no name known for the mother. The married couple moved out from the farm and the mother died in 2002, the farm was a small cattle farm with a handful of sheep and cows. The house remains unsold as the son didn't want to part with the property and hence it was left to the elements.
    No information is known on the other site, but feel free to add anything.

    Hi everyone, we went to Plough Farm in Worthen on 18th October 2016 with the intention of taking some photos. We checked with land registry, the local council and the agricultural board to see if anyone owns it. They all said no-one did. Within 5 minutes of being there though we were stopped by a man saying their is an owner, who we eventually met, along with the police. Most people here just take pictures but it seems others have stolen everything from copper piping to a vintage motorcycle and the owner is rightly fed up. The place is now completely nailed shut, fences erected and gates locked as after months or years of this the owner does not want anyone going back as it's their property and quite dangerous as they said part of it has collapsed into a cellar below. So, save yourself your time and a long chat with the police.

    Should have looked after his property better if he didn't want people going in!

    Just a friendly warning to the community as the police turned up with dogs because they considered it a break in.

    Great pictures! Love these where it looks like the residents have nipped out to the shop.

    Is the stuffed animal house the one that you said is in Leigh?

    Just a warning to anyone wanting to visit Stuffed Animal Cottage, it is now inaccessible, too. A police notice, titled 'Urban Explorers', on the door says the owner is in a care home and that they (the police) have sealed the property. It then goes on to list the offences you'd be committing if you entered and states there are camera traps inside and out. The motion sensor camera on the outside definitely does not work but we weren't willing to test the inside one. Wasted four hour trip!
