Firstly apologies for the quality of the photos. Only excuse is, I did this around 5pm and it was already dark. So being on a main street, It was hard to light up and not be stupid and draw attention to myself. Most long range shots are blurred due to me not setting up my tripod, rookie error, and not wanting to light up like a Christmas tree. So mainly closer shots Ive used. Not happy with these results, as the place is now sealed.​


Farmhouse. Mid C1600, with early facade. Timber framed. Front elevation cement rendered. Right gable end red brick on the ground. Floor the banded plain and fishscale tiles to first floor. Plain tiles on the roof. 5 timber framed bays, with continuous jetty to rear and probably originally also to front. 2 storeys on plinth. Projecting eaves with flat soffit. Steeply pitched hipped roof with gablets. Red brick stack in front slope of roof with gables.
Addictions to rear of 3rd quarter circ 1900/1910.


Firstly some externals

did you go back in the day to see the cars at the back of the house? I went back in May when it wasn't really touched :) shame how trashed a beautiful house has become - we found a diary backing to 1940 something.

No didnt go back, it was the last hit of the day. Next day I moved onto a bone yard somewhere else, a few snaps from there. May post a ensemble of mini explores soon.

Thats good, its quite a huge house, I kept losing my partner in there, so many connecting rooms and corridors lol.
