Left abandoned under Britain’s busiest flight path; This wreck of a house has a long history stemming back from the 14th Century. Left in a state of limbo, with all its furnishings more or less intact, the elements have slowly been reclaiming parts of the building. Room after room have collapsed and you wonder how such a grand home has been allowed to fall into this state of decay. With more reading than a mobile library, we fear much of it will be lost to yet more collapses. It demonstrates how nature left unhindered can pull something apart in a relatively short periods of neglect. More than any other place, you can feel the personal story of its final occupant, though the temptation to project one’s own experiences and ideas onto a supposed memory can distort and embellish the truth.
