Wow that's trashed now!! What happened to the old red front door?Welcome to my first Report!
So earlier this month I visited the famous Tots TV House. I'm aware that this location has been covered a lot recently so I won't go into too much detail on the history. For anyone that doesn't know, Tots TV was a popular kids show in the 90s. This explore was really nostalgic for me as I remember watching it as a child.
Getting to this place was half the fun, I parked the car a fair distance away and took a long walk through the countryside. We eventually got to the correct field and edged around trying not to crush any crops on the way. It was unnerving to hear gunshots in the distance but we figured that it was safe to say that they weren't for us so we continued on our trek. I don't think that the farmers are too bothered about people visiting the house, as long as you are respectful.
Attached to the side of the house is what we assumed was the production hut, this area was completely flooded and I didn't bring my wellies so I couldn't go too far inside. I don't think that there was much to look at in there anyway. Behind the house, you can also find the little stable where the donkey used to live in the show.
Another interesting bit of info on the area is that the Teletubbies filming location is just a couple of fields away. Unfortunately, it is now just a pond due to an agreement between the TV production company and the farmers that own the land, however, I had to go and take a look anyway.
I should also give an update on the current condition of the house. It's not great. Unfortunately, it has been trashed a fair bit, recently too. I have seen reports and videos less than a month before my visit showing the place in a much better condition. On my visit I noticed that some of the windows had been smashed, the stairs were almost in pieces and the famous red door had been entirely removed with no sign of it in the surrounding area. This was really disappointing to see, but it was still worth the trip nonetheless.
My photos are not too great, I am still trying to teach myself some photography skills. I also made a video which you can watch below too. Enjoy.
