There was an old lady who lived in a shoe. She had so many children, she didn’t know what to do. She gave them some broth without bread, whipped them all up, and put them to bed.
Many people assumed it would be hard to believe that a woman could live in a shoe, based on a simple nursery rhyme – until a group of urban explorers discovered a boot-shaped house hidden deep among the UK woodlands.
Of course, no women lived there because the property is slowly being reclaimed by nature, with leaves and vines climbing up its moss-covered walls and falling roof.
Peering through the windows, the urban explorers found that some of the structure had broken, noting that the property is deemed unlivable, with a post on the Abandoned UK Facebook page stating that a woman once lived there in the 1950s!
“This took some finding, but we did it,” the explorers explained. “After walking through the woods for hours trying to find the boot, we discovered it at the bottom of a steep cliff.”
“We eventually made it down in one piece, and at times it felt like we were rock climbing.” Apparently, a woman lived in the boot in the 1950s.”
“Although there isn’t anything stating this, we’ve read it on the internet.”
“Kids used to play on the boot in the 70’s & 80’s as well, this is definitely something different and the detail that went into making it. I hope you enjoy the short video below.”
