Earlier that summer I was introduced to a fellow urbexer. My friend told me, that this person knew loads of potential locations, but was very careful about them. We started following each other on Instagram, and this proved to be very handy.
Every time I was near an interesting location, this person would send me some tips. And that’s how I found this wonderful old villa.
The place was located in a small village by a railroad.In the early 20th century a brick factory was built there. The company operating it later grew and grew and later had several different factories in the village. After the factories closed down in the 1980’s pretty much everything else was closed in the village, too.
This villa was pretty close to the factory and probably was inhabited by its staff. Old maps show, that there were several buildings on the same lot. Now this one is the only one barely standing.
When tipping about this villa, my fellow urbexer mentioned a strange detail about it. I was a bit sceptical about it first, but…
My scepticism faded when I approached the porch. Can you see something strange here?
That is barbed wire. It is all over the stairs, which look pretty much rotten. That doesn’t look like a good combination.
I found another entrance, but it was an even worse mess. Whoever owned this place certainly didn’t want visitors. And I didn’t want to get cuts, so I left.
