Explore #23: Forge Cottage, Long Stratton, Norfolk – December 2013

I’d done a drive-by recce of this VERY derelict cottage on the way back from work a week or so previously, but hadn’t ventured in as I was in my suit! Despite not having very high expectations, and the woeful condition of the property, it was a surprisingly interesting little explore, thanks to the varied and numerous artefacts left behind.

Many thanks to Kubix_UK for the rumour of this place.

I haven’t been able to find any history of note, so straight on with the photos:

We didn’t venture into this upstairs room as half of the floor had given way entirely, with only beams remaining!
