Red Velvet Farmhouse - Chester
Nothing much remains inside this abandoned farmhouse, one of two locations photogrpahed that day, The downstairs is quite bare whilst the windows are covered in cobwebs and dust. A couple of pickled fruit jars remain on a ledge in a small room, yet upstairs a reminder of the human presence which once lived here where a single yellow toothbrush sits in its holder by the sink, a reminder of the people who once called this their home.
A farmer came in whilst I was photographing with a large sheep dog and after explaining why I was there he left me to it confdent I wasn't thinking of anything other that photographing the place. I understood he was looking after the house in some capacity.
Just another derelict farmhouse, uninhabited yet part of our history and a reminder of times when buildings were built to last.
