Abandoned houses in Coventry, UK

These were taken on the spur of the moment with my phone camera so the quality isn't the best. They are in Coventry, UK. I don't know a huge amount about their history but have been told that they have been abandoned for about 3 years. Apparently the smaller house was lived in up until then. The bigger building was the social club for a very large company. Following a series of mergers and takeovers the site is gradually being cleared in preparation for the new company moving to a new site which is under construction.



Front view of the "gatehouse" as I think of it.


Failed attempt at keeping people out


When the house was built

A much later addition


The back garden


This was the best my phone could do through a window with hardly any light


Through the open back door. I didn't go in as I was alone.


Through another window


Looking up the driveway towards "the big house"


Rear view


The entrance and evidence of a fire at some time


Through a window near the entrance





I couldn't get back far enough to get the whole frontage in one picture


Looking back down the driveway
