These eerie pictures show a once-loved farmhouse left 'frozen in time' after being abandoned by its owners.

The farmhouse, whose rooms sit exactly as they were when it was abandoned several decades ago, was captured in a series of images by urban explorer Kyle 'Urbex'.

The 25-year-old, who has explored more than 400 abandoned buildings since taking up the hobby in 2020, visited the farmhouse in Little Hereford, Herefordshire, after spotting it on a Facebook page about abandoned places.

His images show the former home decaying slowly but somewhat 'frozen in time' with all of the former owners' possessions still inside.

The photographs show the kitchen complete with an old cooker in the corner, with a kettle and saucepans still on the hob. There is also a browning calendar on the wall from January 1998.

In other rooms, an old sewing machine can be seen as well as a collection of candlesticks on the fireplace and an old piano stacked with sheet music.

Kyle said: "When I got there I could tell immediately it was subject to natural decay. I had to stay mainly downstairs because parts had fallen in upstairs."

He added: "The first living room I came to, I could sense it was from the 1960s or 1970s because of the retro wallpaper and old-style burner for a fireplace.

"In the kitchen, there was an old cooker and milk cartons all over the floor containing a black substance, which I thought might be tractor oil."

He said he had tried to find the names of the former occupants but letters only seemed to be addressed to 'the homeowner' - so he has no idea who lived there.

Kyle believes young people have partied at the farmhouse since it was abandoned, explaining some empty beer bottles left scattered around.

He added: "In these houses you feel quite sad in a way, it is abandoned and frozen in time.

"We don't know when it was vacated or who lived there but someone's memories are still there.

"The living room had a piano that once would have been played daily - it's now left rotting away.

"For some reason, whatever that is, someone upped and left, and never came back."
