Rural Urbex: halfway up a mountain

in Urban Explorationlast month

This was so much more civilised, able to pull off the country lane, less than a 50 yd stroll.

Be still my beating heart.

This place is currently on the tour bus route, visited by many. As yet undamaged.

The steps covered with tripping hazards the handrail not of much use.

The font door not even on the latch, brought me into a porch come conservatory

The security guard on duty didn’t challenge me, which is good as I would have ripped his arms off.

Nothing spectacular in the kitchen,

Every living room was full, stuffed to the gills with mementos and treasure from bygone times.

As yet untouched by the goons, but who brings a packed lunch when out on a mooch?

Potentially empty no earlier than 2013. It is standing up well

Sewing machines in these kind of time capsules are quite common as is the old fashioned method of communication, it’s called a telephone, and old folk used to put a shilling in the box when they used it. Quaint.

Bric-a-brac:- a term first used in Victorian times to categorise, well, junk really

Back in the day this was the height of the middle classes, a frame made, stuck on the wall, and filled with crap. My parents had several ffs. “Souvenir of Rhyl” “Souvenier of Blackpool “ “a gift from Brighton” et al. Shite.

The rooms are beginning to shows signs of decay and a lack of tlc.

I wonder if surviving kith and kin realise the value of some of the items, ok it’s not Clarissa cliffe, troika nor moorcroft, but some of the items are collectible

Faded photos of a gentler time, I have missed the significance of the three little pigs

Another overgrown area at the backdoor completed my visit

Now it’s time to pop to the crem and beg my mother’s forgiveness for calling her objects d’art:
shite.

Wow! What a beautifully kept place. I hope it stays that way for longer. As long as no one keeps leaving their lunch!

“My parents had several ffs. “Souvenir of Rhyl” “Souvenier of Blackpool “ “a gift from Brighton” et al. Shite.”

That made me laugh. Quite grotesque things, agreed.

Cheers
Yes it mustn’t end up being trashed, fingers crossed on that.

I forgot “ hola from magaluf” now that was exotic back in the day !

I think I have seen this, not on the Major bus route as yet. If it's in Wales there's hope as it is the back of beyond.

Please! Wales is not the back of beyond !!!

You have to admit.., it saves these places from being wrecked.

True, I gave been out a lot last couple of weeks, seen some real good treasure

That view in that first photo looks oddly familiar even though I know for a fact I haven't been in that area of the world. Will chalk it up to weird dream memories XD

Places that look like the occupants just popped out for the day and never came back always spin me out.

Time capsules, tbh I love them, so much history and nostalgia, most things still in situ. The lives others live

Wow, such a lovely place, you are really lucky to find those treasures :D

Thank you,
It was one of the best this year
