The end of a house’s useful life:

A sorrowful cottage, seen better days – not much of the roof left soon, so it’s days are numbered:

Linked to January Squares at Becky’s here



  1. Oh, dear me, yes! Lots of sorry plights around here 🙂 🙂

  2. oh dear it has seen better days hasn’t it, but there again if it wasn’t in such a plight none of us would have ever seen it!

  3. Quite sorrowful Sue 😦

  4. So sad to see abandoned cottages in the countryside … but evocative as well, as your shot demonstrates.

  5. As an estate agent would say. ” A charming cottage in need of some restoration”. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  6. I’m surprised it hasn’t been snapped up by a renovator! Where exactly is it ?

  7. So odd to see that electrical fixture in the center letting you know that the demise is more recent than you might guess from the photo.

  8. I like the remains of the net curtains, Sue And I’m very glad it’s not my house! What a plight!

  9. I’m gradually waking up to —light challenge. It opens the way nicely for your verbal cleverness, and for your decay photography.

  10. To add to the estate-agent-speak – a house with potential.
