    Report - Tilstone House - Tarporley, Cheshire - March 2022

    Report - Ivy House, Cheshire, May 2021

    First report and first real time exploring, thought I'd try somewhere relatively easy and local to start with. I have seen this place a few times on here and also spotted it in both Warrington and Liverpool online news articles, with links to Youtube. I guess my view of the place is, look what...

    Report - Ivy House/Axe House- Stretton, Cheshire, Nov 2020

    Nicked named Ivy House or The Axe Murder House! One of my favourite places which is local to me. The history surrounding this home is uncertain, a lot of local rumours are heard but no solid information to back them up. At first I was told a man had killed his wife here with an axe, but I...
