A little find on the side of a road after an unsuccessful trip out.

It was Saturday morning at approx. 7.30am when I woke up and decided that I was going to go for a drive and take some pictures.

As per usual at the moment I'm still enjoying urbexing (urban exploring) and every time I'm ever out driving anywhere with my wife, family and/or friends I'm always looking out for locations to explore.

On Saturday I decided to finally have a look around a large farm house that I know has been empty since I was child and another house that I only spotted a couple of weeks ago while driving to Peterborough.

Too cut a long story short here the farm house was boarded up and within 5 minutes of being at the location a farmer come along I suppose to see what I was up to, however once I said I was interested in taking photos of the old buildings and anything cool lying around he said I was welcome to explore; well I didn't find much and was soon on my way.

The 2nd location; the house I spotted a few weeks back did look like a great location and looking through the windows there was some really smart stuff in side, such as retro/vintage/or what some people just call really old furniture etc. The windows had a lot of grime on them and the house looked in a poor state and looked empty of life,  however there were some caravans and cars in the back garden so either someone's planning to restore the old house or they've got a free place to stay!?

So I then decided to drive around back roads to see what I could find and with in minutes I found this place.


Again there seemed to be either life next door or maybe in the back garden but I was nice and quiet and after all I'm not interested in causing damage or steeling any ones property.....I just want to have a look around.

If being totally honest there wasn't much too look at inside as it had been gutted and due to the hole in the roof when walking upstairs I wondered if the floor would fall through due to prolonged exposure to the elements.

So here's some more pictures;



On the way out I took a photo of one of my recent purchases; a Praktica MTL50 film SLR camera that I had just finished a role of black and white film in......I cant wait to see the results from that roll, here's the picture of the old heavy beauty.

The last photo I took with my DSLR on this day, I took a few at another unsuccessful location after this one with a another film camera, was of the door of the house; it had some great textures.

Until next time.
