Explore #128: House of the Soldier’s Widow, UK – March 2015

It was another pre-dawn start for the final day of our UK exploring long weekend. Luckily we didn’t have too far to drive to our first location of the day… a time capsule cottage on the outskirts of a small country village.

As with most residential abandonments I don’t have any firm history of this place. From those who have spent far longer there rummaging through the ephemera which still remains, it is thought that the previous owners were a soldier and latterly his widow (hence the codename for the house).

Our Explore
As I’ve mentioned before I’m not a massive fan of these sorts of residential locations, but it was close by and therefore worth a quick visit. Jade was particularly enamoured with the vintage dresses, but Slaaaaya (Ben) was feeling very hungover from the half a pint of shandy he’d consumed the night before. After about 45 minutes James and I decided that as we had a lot of other targets on our list for the day we would move on to the next location – a huge industrial site which is much more our cup of tea!

Anyway, here are the handful of shots I grabbed during our brief visit…
