They Make Horror Movies Here, Don’t They (2007)

I don’t know the history of this house or what happened to it since I took the photos in 2007. But, this is the only place I have ever felt a hint of something odd. I don’t completely believe in ghosts and I don’t believe in evil (not in a Biblical way) but I do think bad atmosphere hangs around and can stick with people and places. Possible Horror Movie Site Wood Picture 1322503244 Possible Horror Movie Site The Pit 1322502000 Possible Horror Movie Site Release the Hounds 1321611525 Possible Horror Movie Site Front Entrance 1322503062 Possible Horror Movie Site 1322503474 Possible Horror Movie Site 1322502824 Possible Horror Movie Site 1322502328 Possible Horror Movie Site 1322501632

No one had lived in this house for awhile. I asked for permission to walk around and see the house. He didn’t mind, just wondered why I was interested. One of the only times I have gotten permission to explore and one of the very few times I talked to someone who didn’t give me a history of the place before I began photographing it.

I don’t know if this house still stands. It had some nice, old fashioned and unique features.

No family were left to carry on with it.

The fields were being used by a neighbour, rented or bought the land (I forget which now). He stopped along the road when he saw me taking photos. Was concerned about what I was doing. But, happy to tell me the story of the place after we talked to him. At the end of the conversation he suggested we pick all the apples we wanted from the trees at the back of the house. He even invited us to come back again and pick more.

I did go back a few times to this house. I met more of the family on another occasion. Later we dug up wild garlic and daffodil bulbs which grew in the long grass. Most of the daffodils came up (three years later) in our own front yard.
