Widow’s Farmhouse, Lincolnshire

Widow’s Farmhouse, Lincolnshire

A farmhouse with plenty of clues left over about the previous owners. The olde-wolrde possessions hinted at a simple life in the country.

This old farmhouse got me thinking. There were plenty of personal possessions remaining, including letters addressed to a lady regarding her pension. There was just the one chair in the living room, and the workshops out the back had obviously been disused a lot longer than the house. The old dear had probably been alone for a while, far from living a modern life, tending to the chickens in the garden. She liked reading, she liked music; There were hundreds of books and a good collection of records. The record player was a real classic, and yet probably the most modern item in the house. I’m glad the house hasn’t been smashed up, but it’s a shame it’s falling into a state of disrepair.

Since my visit, the house has been sold and redevelopment is now under way.
