This Old Farm House...


...I found on a road I haven't travelled for a long time.  I have no idea hoe long the farm has been abandoned but I had to stop and have a bit of a look about... To me, it has a forlorn appeal, for the life and bustle that it probably once knew...




Around the back of the property there is a fantastic array of old outbuildings...


...and the door to one such workshop was open, so just had to peek inside...


...and it seemed as if the work had just suddenly stopped and the place was frozen in time...

  3. ...places like this make me ask why! Why leave a property that looks like it was once an important part of the landscape. Thanks Christine sharing this gem, take care and please stop again.

  5. I find it so interesting that the inside looks like one day everyone just left----I wonder what the story is. Neat outbuildings.

  12. Hello Christine!:) Hmmm Interesting find.! I too wonder why it's been left abandoned, in some hurry it would seem. Twill remain a mystery!:) It's in a sorry state, but the tiled roof seems in tact, and this would make a good project for someone to restore to it's former beauty. It's surprising that the farm house is in pebble-dash, whilst the outbuilding is made of stone, with a lovely curved gate. Lots of history there, as well as mystery!

  13. I expect it would need a lot of work to be restored.

  17. Oh MY, what a find! This must have been a grand house once upon a time. There are still even things in the larder! Did you go inside? I think I would have had to! How very sad...you said it right about forlorn beauty. I picture parties and teas here, and harvest festivals. Wouldn't you just love to know the history?

  18. A truly beautiful old farmhouse. Amazing to me that so much was left behind. Also nice that there are no signs of break-in or vandalism, as happens all too often in old abandoned properties.

  19. If those walls could talk, they would have so many fascinating stories to tell.

  23. Abandoned homes always seem a little sad to me - longing for the life of days past. I was fascinated by your last photo - examining it for clues of when it was last used. I didn't recognize the products, though... Fun adventure!

  28. Hi Christine.

    This is beautiful.
    It is a pity that so many beautiful things are lost.

  29. Wow this is fantastic! These old abandoned places are sad but beautiful. It's so different seeing an abandoned farm there as opposed to here in Alberta which are 'new' in comparison lol!

  30. This is a wonderful old farm house. I like those metal windows that swing out. Maybe someone could come along and breathe new life into it.

  31. This is what my husband and I call a 'fixer-upper'. I look at these pictures and I just want to get out paintbrushes for the doors and windows, and a spade for the garden ... thanks for sharing!
