It's been a little while since I've put a report up, so here's a quick n' dirty one from a recent little explore.

I’d done a drive-by recce of this VERY derelict cottage on the way back from work a week or so previously, but hadn’t ventured in as I was in my suit! Despite not having very high expectations, and the woeful condition of the property, it was a surprisingly interesting little explore, thanks to the varied and numerous artefacts left behind.

Many thanks to Kubix_UK for the rumour of this place.

I haven’t been able to find any history of note, so straight on with the photos:

…and approaching the rear of the property…

The state of the stairs set the tone for the rest of the place, which is absolutely covered with old magazines and newspapers…

We didn’t venture into this upstairs room as half of the floor had given way entirely, with only beams remaining!
