down the road

Down the road from the Fletcher farm on 4th Line (Grey County), is another old two storey brick house that has been abandoned.  These photos were taken in mid-November, 2012.

red brick farm house on a small hill.  It is surrounded by trees but because it is November, there are no leaves on the trees.   The house is two storeys tall and has a center gabled roof.

A view from inside the house, looking out the door.  A wood external door has come off its hinges and is leaning diagonally across part of the doorway.

A very pink wall on which someone has drawn a picture of what looks like a dinosaur that is sitting on his hind legs.  On the back of the dinosaur, there is a small boy who is clinging to the dinosaur's neck

Looking through an open doorway into a room that has a layer of debris on the floor.  The ceiling has fallen (or been removed) and just the wood can be seen.

Close up of the lower part of a doorway.  In the foreground are walls covered with blue and white wallpaper.   The wood trim is bright yellow.  The doorway opens into a room whose floor is covered with debris.  In the second room is a door that is open to the outside and lots of sunlight is coming into the room.

Sunshine through the open door lights up the dirt and debris.
