Farmhouse A

Derelict farmhouse

The calendar shows November 1987 and I suspect this traditional farmhouse has had no occupants since that date. Built to a two up two down design with additional outbuildings this old house now suffers from years of neglect  but was obviously once a cherished home. Painted with cream and blue paint work the huge old fireplace in the kitchen is now full of soot and twigs; rusted implements still hang on the racks and personal bits and pieces scatter on the floor. The stairs have long since gone. A long dead Pope gazes down from the walls, the Infant of Prague offers his protection and rosary beads hang from a hook by the window. A sewing machine, boxes of pills, a Christmas list, some cracked LPs, all offer a glimpse into a past life.
