High lines time capsule house

We set off on a rainy saturday morning along the M3 motorway in search of High Lines House which was owned by an elderly couple.

History...
I don't know the career of the wife but the husband was a neurology doctor and art student of Cambridge university.Sadly the wife passed away in 2009 from cancer and the husband went missing, rumours have it that he commit suicide.

The explore...
We snuck down the overgrown drive to be greeted by this beautiful house which nature is slowly reclaiming, we originally come across the out building which had a sledge type boat, an old tv and a few other things, we walked back on ourselves and saw an over grown set of stairs which lead to the back door/awning where there were many bottles, we climbed over the barn style kitchen door straight into the kitchen to be greeted by a very over crowded kitchen, little bags of pennies on the kitchen table, the wall paper from the ceiling had come down and was hanging in huge strips, all the cups were hanging on the dresser as if they'd just been placed there. We then walked through to the living room which again was strewn with all manner of vintage trinkets from an old set of binoculars to an exercise bike at the far end... the tv set and fire place were a particular favourite feature of the house for me. We then carefully made our way up the stairs to the corridor which had 2 main bedrooms with an upstairs study, seeing all the clothes hanging in the wardrobes and wedding photos made me feel really sad. These people were educated and in love which is easy to see from their photo's in the master bedroom. The second of the two bedrooms was in a sorry state there's water leaking from the roof and several big tubs put in place to gather water. We didn't venture to far into that room as the ceiling had started to fall from the downstairs. After spending roughly 45 mins here we made our way out of the house as quietly as possible so's not to rouse the neighbours. I turned back to snap a few pics of the building before leaving. I really enjoyed this explore and taking a look into the lives of these remarkable people and their history.... and now... the photo's enjoy!! :D

P.s this is my first proper report and is pic heavy. Please excuse the bad pictures which were captured on my samsung s10 and of course the cliche black and white pics.

omg the main bedroom has been more trashed, all that stuff is hiding a hole and i’m surprised it can hold that weight. also, and i have to laugh, the sideboard against the now boarded up old entry point. so much for being told the owner and the powers that be that it was being secured and made safe.

love this place

Nice first report, if I’m being picky some history is always a must but I know it’s hard on residential sites. You just need to include the month and year of the explore and a rough location in the title. Other than that, good job!

The husband hasn’t committed suicide. He lives 3 doors up!! The house is part of a trust

Interesting, what sort of trust? do they know its unsecure? and why did he leave so many belongings behind? im intrigued now

I think the last post was removed & the poster was asked to come in for police questioning, apparently they are watching it pretty closely these days... U would think they would therefore secure it though!

Thats awful once again, if its wide open, its not breaking & entering, civil trespass isn't a criminal matter either. So many more important sites could be secured and people harassed over, what a waste of police time & money.

Just curious how you know this? Its weird he'd leave the place full with such easy access.
