The Crooked House, Essex, Jan 2012

Whilst visiting family in a tiny village out in the sticks of essex I stumbled across this little beauty.
From the outside you would expect nothing short of a stripped out, damp mess.
However to my delight was full of little features that helped to build up a story of the former owners.
 Apparently the elderly lady that last lived here became widowed and could no longer look after herself so she moved into a carehome, Leaving all her possessions behind. 
It's such a shame to see someone's personal belongings left to rot away and eventually get distroyed with the house.

The new land owner plans to have it ripped down some time this year and cram three new houses in its place.

  1. This place is beautiful!
    Is the actual location of it a'secret'?
    Because i'm doing a filming project and it looks like there would be some amazing shots there!(assuming its still standing:P)
