An Urban explorer has discovered an eerie “time capsule” of life in the 1950s.

Photos of the deserted Lancashire farmhouse discovered by urban explorer Dean Slader show a Marie Celeste atmosphere with forgotten toys and even newspapers from the early Fifties left as if the previous owners had just walked out of the door moments before.

A thick layer of dust covers every surface, though, revealing that the quaint country home was abandoned long ago.

Throughout the property, old-fashioned wallpaper peels away from the walls, betraying just how long it has been since the house was occupied.

The abandoned pram gives a creepy impression

One picture shows a deserted children’s playroom with an elegant rocking horse poignantly standing alone and untouched.

All the furniture is typical of the post war era fashions, such as the carpets which have a rose floral pattern, and the ceiling to floor duck egg blue curtains.

The farmhouse, built in the 1880s by architect Thomas Thornton, lies on the outskirts of Fleetwood, Lancs.

It is thought to have been left to stand vacant after a family feud between two warring brothers who were banned from the property by other relatives after their mother, Mary Cowell, died.

Dean, 32, said: “I’ve been all over the UK with my photography.

“I love exploring deserted buildings.”

Dean didn’t say the place was haunted, but it certainly has a supernatural atmosphere

The house has remained unoccupied for a lifetime because of a family quarrel

“This one was fascinating,” he added, “it was like being in a time capsule.

“Once inside the property, there were many possessions including vintage children’s toys including a rocking horse and vintage pram.

“There also sits in the home, many old black and white portraits of the previous owners, old fashioned furniture and an old newspaper dating back to the Queens Coronation special in 1953.”

Dean, who lives in Leyland, Lancs, went on to say that he next wants to explore disaster sites in countries such as Belgium and Ukraine.
