There's really not a lot of history about this house anywhere, nor about why it became forgotten, tucked away in a quiet upmarket area of St Albans, Hertfordshire. After a rather uneventful few weeks with no trips, I got the itch that needed to be scratched and a spontaneous trip with @Proxy23 and another friend ensued. This one is pretty local to us so we were over to it in no time. More recently some friends were visiting from another county so I agreed to take them to see it, so these are photos from two trips. Most things we found in the house were dated to 2001-2003 so it seems that's when the house was abandoned.

The house itself is larger than it initially appears, and filled with belongings from the previous inhabitants. Some of them sentimental, like photographs and letters, hundreds of newspapers in stacks, and jam. Dozens and dozens of jars of jam. Each room had an abundance of items to look at, but the house itself had a very mournful feeling to it. A sense of being suspended in time - like the family got up one day, went out, and never came home. This was someone's home once, and then, suddenly, it wasn't.

Frustratingly, on the second trip I saw that quite a lot of stuff has gone missing from the house and a few other items have been broken, rooms more trashed etc. I'll never understand why people feel the need to do that.
