A creepy abandoned house has remained frozen in time after its owners ‘disappeared overnight’

0

With family snaps strewn across the dresser and clothes still hanging in the wardrobes, it looks like the owners have suddenly decided to take a moonlight flight.

And so a house remained, frozen in time and waiting for someone to come back and bring it back to life.

The only person to walk through his door recently was an urban explorer who described his discovery of the former family home in Chesterfield, Derbyshire – now empty and unloved – as “breathtaking”.

Kyle Urbex, 25, who has explored hundreds of abandoned properties over the past few years and then documented what he found inside with his camera, reports The mirror.



Clothes were thrown in the bath in the bathroom

Images show dozens of old comic books, dating back to the 1960s, rotting on the kitchen counter, family photos and wedding photos eerily left out, while toy cars thought to be around 50 years old were mysteriously grouped together.

In the bathroom, heaps of clothes are thrown into the tub, while a towel and a piece of soap are visible near the sink.

Elsewhere, old dolls are laid out in a seated position on a chest of drawers, a yellow telephone is unused and faded by the sun and a solitary Elvis Presley clock has stopped ringing.



An urban explorer spoke of the "breathtaking" when he discovered an abandoned house that appears to have been untouched for decades.  Kyle Urbex stumbled upon the spooky property in the Brimington area of ​​Chesterfield, Derbyshire, and found dozens of old comic books from the 1960s rotting inside on the kitchen counter.  Family photographs and wedding snaps were oddly left out of the kitchen side, while toy cars thought to be around 50 years old were also found inside the house.

Paint cans, vases and rusting work tools are also neglected in another room, one of many rooms with cracking walls and peeling paint.

“Outside the house is so overgrown you can barely see it from the main road,” Kyle said.

“After struggling through brambles and nettles to reach the back door, which was wide open, I came to the room where the passports were spread out on the table.

“One of the passports had the name Mr WHJ Benham on it, so I can only assume the house was once occupied by a man and his wife.”

He added that the occupants appeared to have left in a hurry, with the house clearly not having been lived in for several years.

“I also found it quite sad that a wedding photo – a treasured possession to remember someone’s special day – just sat there, left for some reason.”

Kyle said he’s often drawn to abandoned buildings, especially houses that look like they’ve suddenly been evacuated, leaving a lot of mystery.

The clandestine photographer sometimes spots photos on Facebook before setting off to explore on his own.
