History:
Black Potts is a detached 19th century property with a boathouse and other ancillary buildings located on an island at the convergence of the River Thames and Jubilee River, with views towards Home Park and Windsor Castle. The island is a tree-covered triangle which is now at the mouth of the Jubilee River. It was a favourite area for fishing for Charles II, Henry Wotton and John Hales.

Visited with @Seany Explores :p
An abandoned island... now that’s a first for me.... We had to go over a bridge to get to this of course, as the island is cut off by river. We got spotted by a lot of fisherman and people out on sailing boats every few minutes. The place is rather busy, however isolated, it’s an odd one to describe.

The house it’s self. Erm wow... take a look at the fireplace for one. That by far blew my mind and I made sure I got a picture of every angle I possibly could.... The rest of the house is somewhat standard if I’m honest, it’s empty. There is a cinema room though. I really struggled getting pictures in here for some apparent reason. I’m putting it down to the fact I was excited I was on an abandoned island. This place has suffered a low level of vandalism, there is no graffiti however the banisters on the stairs have been knocked out and the windows have been smashed at the front. Access into the house is very easy if you actually look...

Ok so moving on to the rest of the island... There is a cool boathouse building that I actually really liked. The vines on the boathouse exterior looked fabulous and really gave it that abandoned feel. I liked the wooden structure inside here.

I must say it was quite surreal and off putting to be so close to the people boating on the river who were aware we were here. I ended up swinging on the tree swing for a bit....

A very fun and interesting explore! :thumb
