It's quite incredible how little this place has changed since 2012

History
I didn't read through any documents in the house this explore, so this is just summarised from others findings,

The owner was Sidney Hilton, who passed away in 1996. Despite this many of the belongings inside seem older, he was probably the type to never replace what isn't broke.
Others have found passports and death certificates around the house, but mainly the urn of ashes being the main concern, but in the past few years this urn has disappeared. Can only hope its with a family member.

Both the large amount of records and a filing cabinet stuffed with company paperwork before 1970 showed his previous life, along with one room seemingly being used as a workshop and lots of large car parts throughout the house.

Now seemingly sitting on the land of the neighbours, planning permission for a large care home overlaps both houses which will inevitably be demolished soon.

Explore

Evading countless people headed in and out of the local college was the worst to begin with, running off the road full speed into a collapsed barbed wire fence, cutting my leg open.
Regardless a trek through a few brambles led to the house, with just a bit of graffiti to see, everything else was still untouched.

No problems with neighbours, just have to crouch outside the house.
