Report - 2 old Farm Houses near Keyham, Leics MAY '20

Came across this first place purely by chance, I was driving past and decided to stop.
This is a 2 bed bungalow on a small plot. It has a few large outbuildings, 1 has a pit so I assume for vehicle maintenance, there are parts with straw and gates for livestock.
It appears to have been a family home until recently, there is children's scribble all over the walls in the green room, sadly the kitchen is vandalised, nothing really left of interest. The windows and doors are modern. No idea why it was left...

Second place was not far away, I found it on good maps, its very well hidden and not close to any roads, it took a lot of walking, hopping fences and hiding to get to it!
This is a 3 bed farm house, its seems like a nice sturdy house, i can only hazard a guess that perhaps the house and site wasnt big enough and the farm expanded as it appears the farm has moved nearer to the road.
It is right next to a brook but it doesnt appear to have suffered subsidence?
It was boarded up so pitch black in there, but door wide open. Again no graffiti or vandalism which was amazing. Sadly nothing really left behind of interest.

I guess you don't understand the 'stay at home as much as possible' guidelines that almost everyone else has stuck to :rolleyes:

Exploring is NOT essential exercise.

You should know exploring on lockdown after the various posts regarding it isn’t going to end well

First time I've been out for ages.
Were allowed to drive for exercise, and I was actually driving to feed my horse which is also allowed so I dont really get the issue, I walked about 10 miles round fields yesterday and these places were on that route.
Didn't see anyone either.
I dont think this is the place for an arguement trying to clarify government rules when even Boris cant be clear to the people..
You cant see your family, but you can go shopping with hundreds or strangers, your mum cant see her grandkids yet they can go back to nursery with 10 other children and 4 staff, all strangers..

It’s not about rules it’s about common sense and thinking about others. If you were to have an accident it would take valuable resources away from elsewhere in the NHS

I understand that but I drive daily to feed my horse.. I could be in a car accident, I could get kicked by a horse, I could fall over crossing the road... I dont feel I put myself at any more risk than usual. I wouldn't of gone to a theatre, hospital etc anywhere I had to climb or walk on dodgy floors so I dont feel I've done anything wrong. As I say this is the first time I've photographed places since the lockdown I feel like I've been careful and considerate

That's not the point.

The government has told us we can exercise as much as we like in outdoor spaces - parks, beaches, fields etc etc. Wandering around a derelict building is not one of those things, were you to have an accident in one you divert medical teams and care away from those who really need it right now and you could end up in hospital where you really don't want to be.

Word up..

It's clear these residential sites are quite popular with a fair few "explorers" and have been for many years now, however of late there have been many random soggy shit holes posted often with silly code names and such like..

Granted not all these places have a proper name, however it's been proven many do and it's bordering ridiculous now!

So enough of Rightmove Urbex, as of now we're clamping down, if it's an interesting mansion/manor house or similar residential site with some relevant history then fair play and more than welcome :thumb

If it's old MacDonalds dilapidated farmhouse, deceased Dave's flat, Uncle Alberts shed or Mrs Browns half lived in bungalow we ain't interested..Seriously!
That said, there's been some decent stuff posted over the years, but lately it's in decline and some kind of quality control needs to be put into place, so please take heed, as we reserve the right to remove anything deemed not suitable :brew
Let's not forget that we don't really want to see a derpy farm house in the first place

But having an accident at a time when the emergency services have better things to do is something that could and should be avoided.
