Wilkinson's Saw Mill, Walkeringham

This has hoarderish elements to it, however it seems that it was predominantly a business that produced sawn timber for structure and cladding with storage perhaps as a sideline. There’s a hell of a lot of dry timber that's been stored and just left throughout all the different structures on site, looks to have been there 15-20ish years.

There are dozens of vehicles dotted around, ranging from a 1949 Bedford MLC (last taxed in 1969) to a 1993 Ford Escort all in varying states of disrepair.

Can find very little info regarding this little saw mill, it seems to have become abandoned in stages. The ages of the vehicles give the main clues.

Visited solo, which is not unknown for me, but for some reason, this place felt a little strange, almost like you were being watched and it reminded me a lot of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre, I was just waiting for Leather Face to jump out of one of those wood-filled sheds!

In places it was really hard to take any decent shots, what with the amount of damage to the buildings (roof collapses on top of cars), or the amount of stuff just left around the place, but here are some of the better ones.
