Day 154 – No Room…

… at the Inn. The Corbet Arms was once a prosperous hotel in town, but fell on hard times and was derelict when we first moved to the area 11 years ago. The front half of the building has been renovated and houses the local Post Office and a small antiques business, but as you can see from this photo, the rear is still far from loved…

Day 147 – Work In Progress…

This property, near Newport, has been derelict for quite some time. It looks like some progress was made on renovation, and then it was abandoned, judging by how high the weeds around it have grown. Could actually be a very sweet property…

Day 81 – A Stately Pile…

Seighford Hall is a 16th-century timber-framed manor house and grounds near Stafford, re-designed in the 18th century. Although it looks pretty derelict from this angle, it is currently in use as a nursing home. I bet it has some stories to tell…

Day 19 – A Wartime Relic…

These few rusted sheets of corrugated iron are all that remains of the former army camp at Prees, near Whitchurch. Originally a WW1 training camp, an airfield was also built nearby at the beginning of WW2, and it later became a Prisoner of War camp. After the war it served as housing for Polish refugees and army families before being closed and abandoned in the 1950s.
