We visited an abandoned house on Petitor Road, Torquay today, squatters have inhabited the house for the past 7 years.
A local resident had this to say:
“An old couple split up about 8 years ago and moved out of the house, the son of the family moved in and lived there for a year before he eventually left too”
The old victorian house has been a popular site for squatters, who have been kicked out by construction workers to try and stem the trespassing. Fences have been erected around the property in the last 6 months which help keep people out.
We have a gallery below of the house which is in a state of disrepair.
