Derelict House, Swallownest.


Recommended Posts

Just been looking at the thread about the boarded up house in Meadowhead and it reminded me of one just down the road from where i live. It's on Main Street, just at the bottom of High Street, near the co-op.

 

It's quite a big house and i always think it looks really spooky. Theres a little stream right next to it and it looks as though the house is about to fall right in to it!

 

I've just had a look at it on google maps and the image is from 2008. It looks as though somebody had bought it and was about to do it up. They obviously never got round to it as it's currently all boarded up and looks to be in quite a sorry state.

 

Does anybody know anything about the history of the house? Local kids have said it's suppossed to be haunted!

 

I've tried putting a link to it on google maps but can't get it to work!

I think the boards were done by the council in order to stop kids getting in, presumably from that it's an unsafe building.

It's been empty for a long time, in fact I don't even remember anyone living in it since I was a kid (I'm 30 now).

 

Never heard any 'ghost' stories though.

I'd love to get in and have a look around!

Similar story to Emporer Ming. Bought by the developer the same time Bradleys nurseries was sold I did here in order to widen the enterance for the first planning application for Tesco.

I thought that the land was bought up by a developer just before the crash

 

I guess one day they'll bulldoze it and shove some flats on there. In the meantime, it gives the local kids something to vandalise / burn

So is the developer still shown as registered proprietor at HMLR?
