Rural Urbex: Rolf’s Gaff

in #hive-1043872 months ago

From just driving past, windows are intact etc... it looks like it could be habitable. Do you look at some and find angry owners chasing you away?

Otherwise, very cool. How long have those socks been drying out?

Some of the giveaway stuff are old tired gates roped up with string and overgrown “drives”. Worth a walk past, get a feeling and dive in.

I guess I have been lucky up to now, and the docks, well I guess years tbh!

Still stunned at what gets left behind when the place is abandoned and my mind ponders what really happened. There's a sadness to see all of a persons life just still there lingering like a ghost. Their family photos their belongings. These people had a life at one time. Its just boggling how the place became abandoned. How everything was left as if they fled in the middle of the night leaving every one of their possessions. eerie.

I agree @hidave
What I find disturbing is how a so called loving caring family can allow this to happen, surely they want keepsakes of the departed?

I agree. It begs the question. Wtf happened!

Fascinating as ever!
