Of course, we’re curious about what might be inside an abandoned farmhouse that hasn’t been touched for years.
But no manner are we going to snoop around ourselves. Just think of the ghosts, or at least the rusty nails, ready to scratch your flesh.
So we’re grateful to Daniel Sims, an urban explorer who does the hard work for us and then shares photos – so we can satisfy our curiosity without having to walk through the dust and creepy crawlers.
Daniel, 32, found a farm in Yorkshire that appears to have been abandoned with ‘everything left behind’, and took his supporters inside to get a nose.
Having heard about the farm from another explorer, he and his friend Steve entered through a small open window.
They were stunned by what they found: toothbrushes, cosmetics, spooky children’s toys and antiques strewn everywhere.
Daniel, who shares his adventures in abandoned buildings on his YouTube channel, BeardedReality, said, “I could tell it was going to be interesting to watch this place.
“The atmosphere was calm at first, but sometimes it got quite weird – we would hear random noises all over the house that got us a bit on edge.”
As Daniel and his friend walked through the house, they discovered all manner of mysterious objects, left behind as if whoever lived there was gone in the middle of the night.
In the kitchen, the kettle, dishes, and appliances were left as ready for use, while large paintings sat near an antique cabinet.
They also found an old Philips stereo system, a large desk, and a white porcelain urn (no ash inside).
Oh, and lots and lots of children’s toys – that suddenly look quite weird when there are no kids around.
Some of the items littered around the property included a boxed doll, board games, and a wrapped horse figurine.
In the attic – yes, Daniel and his friend had the courage to venture there – was a “super scary” dollhouse, a large wooden wardrobe and a red jacket hanging in the middle of the room.
Personally, we would have fled at this point, but the duo then went down to the basement, where they found piles of dishes and decorations, as well as a fridge stocked with jams and chutneys.
They estimated that there could be “thousands of pounds of stuff” in the property.
Daniel said: “The main area that caught my surprise was in the basement where the majority of collectibles flew out and other random antiques.
“For good people and good collectors, some of these individual items could be worth hundreds.
“We wondered why such a place had become like this – we were blown away by everything we saw. “
