I have gotten some negative reactions recently for going into these abandoned places and filming the past lives of the people that occupied these homes. They told me that I was breaking into somebody’s property and trespassing.
To be clear on this all I don’t see urbex in that way at all. If done right the thing that you do is preserve history for the coming times. but I won’t disagree with the people, it is on the edge of legality and you sometimes are breaking the law. But it is all for the good of history and we are trying to preserve what is left of it in this beautiful world.
Just like we did this week with a building that has been around since the beginning of the 1800s. This was a farm that belonged to a big French family with around 8 children. The house itself had not been used in around 40 years. All the artefacts of the former inhabitants were still inside of this place and wow was it beautiful to see!
Walking through this place we got a true feeling of the former times. All the rooms where dressed with religous pieces and all the items we found in this house where ancient treasures. On the top floor there where around 8 bedrooms witch is very uncommon for the day. Mostly when parents had a lot of children in these times they would only have a few bedrooms to put them. But for all the children to have there own bedroom is very uncommon.
The top floor was my favourite part of the home. It had there very long hallways with a wooden oak floor. It squeaked from every side and it gave the building and old feeling. At the end of the hallway, you see a wine jug made from clay. Typical for a French farm, in the video, you can see that there was even a wine cellar underneath the farm.
This was my favourite bedroom in the whole house. It was a kids bedroom and was filled with little historical pieces. The bed was still made with this thick mattress on top of it. The filling of the mattress was from horse hair, This was a cheap and good insulator for the time.
