Abandoned Rural

Decided it might have been more than a bit dodgy to try to get inside this one:



  1. It does look a little sad indeed. If this was in the Cotswolds, it would likely be done up as a ‘des res’.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Oh, I was worried at the cars here…but this one looks bad…

  3. It does look somewhat past repair but makes for a great photo op. 🙂

  4. Those torn curtains (?) are the saddest.

  5. You can taste the damp and decay, but hope is not lost yet.

  6. Abandoned houses are always so sad because there must surely so much history in them. Love the photos!

  7. I like old things, Sue, even dilapidated buildings, so these are great photos.
    In the second one, it looks to me as though there is a woman just inside the window… she’s wearing curlers and is wiping the surface down. She was the first thing I saw, which made me think ‘I can’t believe someone still lives there’! I do spot the oddest things at times! 😀

  8. This could be made very desirable. Just need one of those renovators to catch on! Lovely photos Sue.

  9. I would be reluctant too, who knows if my sense of adventure would prevail :D. You did a great job capturing it, Sue. Wonderful!

  10. It needs some repair, to say the least, but your photos made it beautiful.

  11. Poor house! It brings to mind one of R S Thomas’s most lugubrious verses ‘Leave it, leave it – the hole under the door/ Was a mouth through which the rough wind spoke/ Ever more sharply; the dank hand/ Of age was busy on the walls/ Scrawling in blurred characters/ Messages of hate and fear.” Depopulation of the Hills
    You caught it so well, Sue.

  12. Those poor sad stones ….

  13. The traces of fabrics and things make it sad, it may not be many years since the last person left, I wonder why. The poem that Tish posted is a wonderful find.
