This nice old house in the Wingerworth area of Chesterfield would have once stood in a great expanse of open farm land, but over the years has become slowly surrounded by housing developments to the west and industrial workings to the east.

It has been unoccupied since 2013 after the last occupant went into care. Since then – and after his passing in 2019 – the house has been slowly destroyed by the local berks.
Think this place has been blasted on social media recently so thought I’d sort some pictures out from a visit a bit back on a soaking wet morning with @Gsxrwayne

From an 1880s OS map, nicely remote at the time

The last occupant seemed like he was into his oval racing as there were several trophies knocking about - this one I believe was from Buxton Raceway, formerly High Edge Raceway until the mid-90s

Those belongs, the photo, and the electric blanket on the bed, feels me with sadness. Some old things in there. Sad story to the place, maybe thats why I feel sadness. Shame its rotting away. And getting trashed.
That grey, red zigzag wallpaper is the same as my brother had in his room as a kid.

The bottle beer bottom of the stairs was 4 years out of date, it tasted rank when I opened it .. been tour bussed a fair bit since I went and not alot of people realise there is a hidden room in the house either..

You're joking?!

I guess that's what happens when it gets slapped over Facebook...
Yeah.. when we walked in the green gate was open but right in front was a big sensor, shuffled past that one, one in the hall got us, then there is one in the barn too.
While we were there another 2 or 3 groups turned up setting all the sensors off..
Police turned up about 15 mins later and caught 2 people, took details, old man (possibly owner) taking pics of cars. Everyone else including me scarpered

I've always been interested in that house, as it is of very similar construction to my own. I wonder if it was built at the same time? I'd really need to see the inside of the roof to be sure.
