This was a gorgeous find of derelict farmlife including two homes and various outbuildings. Enormous stealth is required however due to the location being surrounded by an active livery.
Yet another delightful farmhouse with all manor of little nik-naks in Derbyshire.
A derelict farm, out in a small village in Leicestershire
The Hoarders House– ‘This is the house of MR David Godfrey howells and MRS Ida Howells who unfortanly passed away in 1990 . This house was originally was his parents house ( Alfred ) , He grew up there. Was possibly a milk farm among other things.’ Donebythe – MidlandsHertage.co.uk
We took a chance on exploring a rather ordinary looking farm in North Wales, while the structure itself didn’t turn out anything special, we did find a very nice surprise in one the the barns. A Glider in pieces, which on further inspection turned out to be British National free distance record for two seaters. Its pilots were David Stabler and Jeremy Moore. Apart from ‘sticky’ conditions around Cambridge, the flight was not hard with thermals taking them to 5,000 ft. Declared goal was Perren-porth which would have given them the two seat National Goal flight record as well. The previous free distance record was flown by John and Valery Fielden some years ago in a Bergfalke 3. This was 421.5 kms. They still hold the Goal flight for the two seater British National Record.The Bergfalke 2-55’5 BGA No. is 2159. The ’55’ indicates that it is the 1955 version of the MU 13E which was first offered for sale for 7,500 OM (then £750) in 1951. We like to think that this indicates that it is a vintage sailplane. Its landing in Cornwall was at 1900 hours.
