Thanks to Brewtal over at DP for the tip on this place. Its pretty weirdly located being so closed to houses yet still in the arse end of no-where. Vandals have done a proper job on the cars sadly, most of them being burnt out.


History

I don't really know the history of this cottage. From what I found there its pretty obvious the owner was a automotive engineer/enthusiast with a collection of cars to suite. I don't know how long the cottage has been derelict, but it has to be sometime after 1989 as that was the date on the most recent magazine that was in the cottage.


The Explore

A super chilled easy explore, its right off a footpath however not a single sole walked by during the hour I spent there.

I was actually surprised what was left inside the cottage. Most of the roof has collapsed, however there are a couple rooms with the roof mostly intact that had some massive collections of magazines, newspapers and books.

I broke out my fish eye lens for the first time in a little while too,

This room had a literal pile of magazines and books. A truly massive collection as well.

Judging by these, the old owner was an automotive engineer of some sorts.

Outside the house is a collection of cars and a small boat. Judging by the previous reports of here, they were burnt out fairly recently. Pretty sad :(
