Old cottage ‘frozen in time’ abandoned by soldier whose dusty boots still lying on floor

An abandoned cottage untouched for 25 years has been revealed to the world in astonishing photos taken by an urban explorer.

The property, known locally as “The Guard’s House” or “The Blue House”, is at the end of a remote country path near Amlwch, Anglesey.

The surfaces inside are covered in thick layers of dust and cobwebs that indicate no one has lived there long.

Kyle, the explorer who took the photos, told North Wales Live that he believed the home has been empty for at least 25 years.

The upper floor is now experiencing a collapse of the flooring.

Old photographs of what’s believed to be a guardsman are scattered across the counter top of a dressing table – along with a pair of old boots covered in a thick layer of dust.

Kyle claimed that he entered the property earlier in the year with his partner.

“After the long trek up the track, we were finally greeted by the old styled looking house now missing it’s once lovely blue door.

“Once inside it was clear that some of the rooms had been stripped back to nothing but a shell where furniture once stood.

“However bits of furniture were downstairs and the odd photo clinging to the wall but nothing compared to the upstairs bedroom which was left frozen in time with the beds still standing.

“The desk where family memories and photos were sprawled across and of course the iconic guards uniform folded neatly on the chair as if someone had folded it up and planned to wear it the very next day accompanied by the set of old man’s boots on the nearby chair.

The house was given two names because little is known about its former occupants, he added.

The Guard’s House name came about because of the photographs and items inside and locals believe “he once lived there and vanished without having time to retrieve his belongings”, Kyle said.

“The Blue House name came about mainly due to the fancy blue wallpaper In the upstairs bedroom and downstairs living room area and the blue front door what once lived on the property.

“Overall I’d say I’d put it in my top ten explorations so far within Wales and certainly a strange feeling knowing that it had just been left to rot and decay over the years since the last occupant vacated.”
