Of all the things I ever thought I'd see online, being able to look on Rightmove and find the house I grew up in for 20-odd years is not one of them...

Seeing such photos is weird to say the least!

I have long been campaigning for reasonably priced housing for Britain's population but 25k might be a little TOO low. I had no idea things were that depressed in the NE :(

It's a little odd, for me, to read such an entry, when we tended to move every year or two. ^_^; (Though, certainly, there were places we remember with greater fondness, such as where I popped into the world - the inn we owned at the time)

I can only begin to imagine how strange that must be. I found it weird enough when I used Street View recently and wandered down the street that I used to live in some 30+ years ago. To see that garden and front door again after all that time, even though we only lived there for 7 years (and to be able to view the back garden in the satellite mode!) was very strange. So it must be quite moving in a way seeing that house up for sale.

25k? Damn I can put down 10% of that house price right now as deposit...

Probably in a bad area since what it used to be though. Never own a house. :(

I can imagine how that must feel. The house looks to be in fairly good shape, though. Much nicer than the house my mother grew up in in Burnley.

It was still quite pretty when we visited it, 50 years after her family moved out. Today, though, I am sad to see that it is in a very rundown condition.
