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.
