Untouched Abandoned House: Made Fascinating Discoveries! – Urbex Lost Places UK


Forgotten houses are a specific form of urbex
we have always wanted to try, and today was going to be our first attempt. Around the rural side of the UK, there are
many derelict homes simply left by the owner due to many obscure circumstances. In this episode we are exploring two different
sites that have a distinct contrast to each other. Be prepared to watch us make multiple fascinating
discoveries over what interesting remnants were left behind. One of the reasons we hadn’t visited one
of these vacant homes yet is that they tend to be in secluded areas, places that is inaccessible
to our normal public transport. However, today we had a lift straight to our
first abandonment. Literally, right outside it. Firstly, we ventured inside the small bungalow
the residents would live inside. We hadn’t heard much good about it and it
wasn’t the reason we were visiting this place. Once inside, our beliefs were confirmed as
the little building was empty and quite destroyed. In the houses garage was the first abandoned
car of the visit. You could see where scrappers had nicked metal
and the engine from it. The rest of this site consists of many long
sheds, each with unique surprises waiting for us. One key find we made in the house was papers,
tons of them, filled with notes about cars and parts for them. Although there is little history on this isolated
location, we can probably work out that it’s last owner was a massive fan of cars, collecting
them to work on. These shelves were for eggs which also tells
us that the man was a farmer. Cages could also be seen most likely to be
for the chickens. Two retro Morris cars sat in a depressing
state in one of the sheds, again with their windows smashed and the majority of their
internals stripped out. In addition, this shed also featured an old
tractor that looked like it hadn’t been used in a very long time. With that, we had seen all this little spot
had to offer. Even though it had some cool features, we
wouldn’t normally cover a site like this but it is walking distance from another abandoned
home that we were very intrigued by. Compared to the first house, our second one
isn’t anywhere near as secluded, so we had to quickly access it before we were spotted
by locals. We were astonished by the lack of damage so
far. You could tell by certain objects like the
rotary telephone how long it’s been since someone occupied
the premises. The darkness made the scene feel quite eerie,
like walking through a normal house with layers of dust added on. We spent what felt like an age in every room,
looking through as much as could, hoping to learn about the past occupants. The living room was filled with ivy that had
crept through a window, showing how long the building has been disused. There was signs that whoever had lived here
had begun to pack up at some point. Many items had been placed into bin bags and
dumped near the door, as if ready to be picked up by a moving van. A gas mask was an object we didn’t expect
to see at all, casually hung near the door like a usual everyday activity. From the furniture still here, we reckon an
older couple had lived here, perhaps with visits from their grandson. Stacks upon stacks of unopened letters sat
by the door, giving the impression that people may have not realised the house was vacant
from the outside. From previous explorers, we know that the
newspaper coverings on the windows was fitted relatively recently. Upstairs, we instantly found two shotgun pellets
along side a teddy bear, which was covered in spider webs. There was also many more old artefacts remaining,
which meant to us that this place was completely untouched as nothing had been stolen. The final room to see was probably the best
of them all, as it was filled with interesting remnants from alternate eras. We can learn a lot about the previous residents
in the house from what they left behind. For example, this medal we believe to be for
war efforts in world war 2. Maybe you think that’s a bit too far back,
but it made sense after one of our next discoveries. That passport featured the oldest date we have
ever seen in an abandoned building. It is unbelievable that it has stayed in such
a good condition being trapped in this deteriorating structure. Following this, we had looked through all
of the two sites we had planned and set off home. It is unlikely anything will happen to either
of these places apart from further decay and destruction, which is sad because both of
them seem to be places of great memories for the owners. Although the cars were great to see, we found
it very strange that such classic cars hadn’t been sold at least when the site became disused. Perhaps not many people knew of the owner
or his belongings.
