I’d actually seen reports on here when I was looking at places near Warrington as my other half and I were going there for the weekend to check out some pins we had around that area and in North Wales. Wasn’t sure where it was though so decided to look into it when we got to the hotel.
There was an accident on the motorway so we decided to come off and go through the back roads instead, literally drove past and it caught my eye, decided to pull over, Google’s the estate agents sign and when I went through the pictures I recognised the stained glass door straight away! Sheer luck we found it.

But if history as I know everyone knows already,

In 1901 Joseph Harrison, a retired bank manager, was living at Ivy House with his wife. By 1911 George and Elizabeth Dean, and their son William. George was born in Higher Walton and gave his occupation as a director in a firm of provision merchants. Samuel Salt Basnett, a farmer from Preston Brook and his wife was recorded as living there in the 1939 Register. The couple later moved down the hill to Appleton where Samuel died in 1953. They were followed by Harry Winstanley, formerly of Dorothy Farm Stretton, He owned Roadside Farm which was managed by Eric Parr, and died at Ivy House aged 77 in 1985.

The explore itself was fairly easy, despite the stinging nettles and brambles that ripped and stung me to pieces going in, even got stung on my face I’m only 5ft and they were taller than me. So worth it though what a total gem of a location, loved it.

Residential are definitely my favourite explores, love trying to imagine how the houses looked when they were lived in and actually someone’s home, quite sad when you see what people lived and worked for all their lives just left behind and forgotten

It's sealed up now and everything around the house and in the old garage has been wrecked by idiots!!! Glad I covered this when I did now...
