Photographer Toby Batchelor discovered an old cottage in Hertfordshire, U.K., and what’s inside is a portal into another world.

Called the Crooked Cottage, the owners abandoned it, and it’s remained untouched for a decade, MailOnline reported.


It was lived in by a “spinster and her father” until his death in 1971, the Mail reported.

Leftover items such as an old bicycle, an old oven, and family portraits remain.

“What we see is someone’s life story, left to rot in this old, run-down cottage,” Batchelor siad. “There were lots of trinkets, family photos, furniture and items left behind which tell a story.”
