Abandoned House in the Plotlands

I recently went on a walk in Langdon Hills Nature Reserve, Basildon, hoping to get a few photos of some birds.  What I didn’t expect to find was a cool derelict building hidden in the woods.

As I was not expecting to find this place, I also was not aware of the history of it until I got home and did a bit of research. The area now covered by the nature reserve is what once was the Plotlands. This particular house was apparently called “Thorngrove,” although I could only find one source for this information.

Anyway, here are some of the photos showing what is left of the building, and how nature is taking over.
