Left to crumble and die by BikeBoyPunk Left to crumble and die by BikeBoyPunk
Whilst out on one of my walks I found this old abandoned farm, there was no road leading to it and the only track over the desolate moors had long since been covered over by the heather. The building now just stands there slowly decaying so that one day there will be nothing left but a pile of stones.

I stood and wondered who had lived and worked there, how long ago did they leave and why. There is no mains water, no electricity, no phone and no gas supply and no food store for over 10 miles. Life here must have been hard.

If only the ghosts could talk...

Reminds me of the farm house my Grandmother was born in on the Isle Of Wight

It's actually way up north from there, but it's such a shame that these places are abandoned. But I guess that because they are quite remote it contributes to the problem.

well better than torn down and the area turned into houses (flats). The home of my grandmother still stands, Compton Grange in Brooke on the IOW.

Yeah I agree there, if they are to be abandoned then so much better if they are slowly reclaimed by nature :)
