They say good things come in small packages, and this is certainly something that rings true for this little bungalow.


History

This small bungalow was abandoned in 1991 and has been sat in a time warp ever since. Sat at the edge of a farm hidden away deep in the in the countryside, this sweet little place has barely been touched.
Its hard to say why it was abandoned, but I suspect it was lived in by an elderly person and left empty when the died.

I found a planning application put in during the April of 1991 to demolish the bungalow and build another, which was granted. However clearly this never happened.


The Explore

I've been trying to find this bungalow for a good few weeks now, but I was having no luck. Scouring Google Maps was becoming futile. I knew the rough area of it, but I just couldn't find it.

I decided that the only way I was going to find it was the hard way and to get out and find it on foot. I had a few potential locations marked on my map, but all of them turned out to be wrong.

So as a last ditch attempt I decided to just walk and follow my nose, and through sheer luck found it!

While it seems to be well and truly stuck in the 90s with everything left exactly where it was, there were a few details that led me to think it hasn't been totally forgotten. Firstly the power to the building is still on and uses a modern looking consumer unit. Secondly the grass around the bungalow is well trimmed and kept.

I had a bit of a panic moment shortly after going inside when I heard things being shuffled around outside toward the side of the building. I didn't see or hear anyone, but something was definitely making a racket. It stopped after a few minutes but I still have no idea what it was.

The rest of the explore went uninterrupted.

The power coming into the building. To me these units look more modern than 1991, but I'm sure someone will correct me soon enough :p

Amazing find! It's like a time capsule, slowly crumbling but still a snapshot of nearly 30 years ago. I'm also really pleased to see that it seems to have survived over 20 years without anyone coming along and ruining it. Everything seems remarkably in place.
Awesome job!

Found this lovely little bungalow today. What a shame it is being left to rot :( some lovely original reminders of the 80/90's in there!
Be careful when entering, there is a large hole in the floor!
