The Haunted House, Duppas Hill, Croydon

‘The Haunted House’ visual poem explores the space of a Victorian house built in Croydon ( London ) in 1839 and abandoned since 2008. The house is owned by the Terranova Sea Cadets who cannot afford to have it renovated.

In 2011 an arson destroyed part of the house roof and in 2014 an homeless was found dead in the back of the building due to a fire started by two teenagers who were dangerously playing inside the house. Since then the building, that has been squatted for many years, has been renamed by locals ‘The Haunted House’.
