Houses

Double Century

Double Century

This was taken in March at Manor House ‘B’ in Norfolk, in the very dilapidated kitchen.  I loved the cool winter light illuminating the green bottles, to form this grubby still life where the mice would surely feel at home…. This is two shots blended using layers and masks in Photoshop, one exposed for the […]


Documents From Another Era

Documents From Another Era

One of the things that was so interesting about Manor House B were the amount of personal objects still remaining there, such as these antique documents lying on the table in the living room – money orders for one penny, newspapers, an AGM report for the Indian Railway Company dated 1873, and even a handwritten letter to someone […]


One Room, Three Floors

One Room, Three Floors

Manor House B, showing the kitchen and the lovely view all the way up to the third floor!  Mark and I were quite possibly taking our lives into our hands even entering this building, but we were both extra vigilant and took a lot of care as we moved about the house.  It was sad […]


Long Way Down

Long Way Down

This shows the staircase at Manor House B – or rather what’s left of it – we had to use the ladder (found by Mark in a side room) to ascend to the next floors up.  I loved the symmetry of this scene, and the way the light came in from the doorway on the […]


What Lies Beneath

What Lies Beneath

The view from the top floor at Manor House B, all the way to the ground floor without having to use the stairs! A poor quality roof repair which failed some years ago led to disasterous water damage to part of the house, including the collapse of sections of the second floor, and the current owner […]

Dreamscape

Manor House B, hidden in the heart of the countryside, slowly falling apart through total neglect. This is one of the rooms on the middle floor, where the decay is not quite so extensive i.e. there is still a floor that’s just about safe enough to walk on, but I could see that it would only […]


Tread Softly

Tread Softly

Really frustrated with WordPress at the moment.  After upgrading to the latest version 3.1, I now find that I cannot edit the images that I post here, which normally entails making them the right size and opening my website in a new window.  Have looked on the WP Forum, it would appear that others are […]


Self Assigned Penance

Self Assigned Penance

Mark and I visited a new location yesterday, a bit of a drive from London but well worth the effort.  This abandoned manor house is in the heart of the countryside, although quite close to an inhabited house, and there was a caravan in the back garden that looked inhabited to me (the net curtains […]


Bath Time

Bath Time

This is one of the photographs selected by the Editor of “The Transmitter” magazine, to appear in the article about me and my work.  It was taken last month at an abandoned house quite local to me, first spotted by Mark when he cycled past one day.  All Urban Explorers seem to have this built-in […]
