Visited this place on the way home from a failed attempt at the RAF Thurleigh control tower with a couple of companions. We decided this one looked worth a quick look as we were already in the area, but it's more of a derp than anything.

Couldn't find much information about the houses or why they were abandoned, but they are earmarked for demolition and will likely be replaced with more modern housing similar to those surrounding it. It seemed a shame the older house, dating back to 1888 will be pulled down but on entering there is evidence of some structural issues, mainly subsidence and it is heavily damaged by vandals.

The more modern pair of semi detached houses were pretty empty, with not a lot worth seeing inside. Mainly a few remnants of their old inhabitants and evidence of vandalism. They were a decent size inside and would have been quite nice homes once.

Apologies for slightly ropey photos, I took most of them on my phone due to some issues with my camera.

Was thinking grim, but that last house would have been nice in its day

The planning here is actually for a care home, rather than more housing. Work has been put on hold due to the construction of the enormous care facility just minutes away.

Ah Nice, I suppose the neighbouring care facility would cause an issue. Either way it's quite sad to see what were probably once lovely homes left to rot
