I have a feeling we'd be surprised by such places everywhere, John. What a great find!
John Prior: Indeed, one does wonder what leads to abandonment.

Good heavens! Let's hope one day someone turns this maltings into something more agreeable than this
John Prior: I think will be redeveloped, the mixture of style, age and location would make it a potential gold mine.
I can believe it John - though even the junk looks tidy and well arranged! smile
John Prior: Seemed to be a garage workshop before that was just abandoned, several cars just left standing.
It isn't often you see a Rover 800 these days wink
John Prior: It was a big mistake to end the partnership with Honda. I had a 400, twin of the 'Honda Concerto' and it was a really nice and well made car.

A few bobs worth of scrap here I suspect John.
John Prior: Yes indeed, which makes one wonder why it was just abandoned.
I couldn't agree more John, I think that goes for a lot of well known, and picturesque places.
John Prior: Thanks Brian, yes it is true that you never realise what is hidden.
I was thinking along those lines, before I read your comment! Makes a good shot, though! smile
John Prior: It almost feels like archaeology smile
that is one interesting backyard!
