Originally went out to get a few shots of some odds and ends I spotted from the road, then this, lurking back from the road abandoned for years.

That's almost haunting. I'm surprised the roof would still be there in the dilapidated condition the house is in. Where was this taken, if you don't mind my asking?

It looks like it's been that way for years (more photos to come through the week), the roof timbers are heavily weathered and the remaining roof on the outhouse/shed is still collapsing.

Given the quality of the stone work, the additional buildings (there's another two.. which are going to be appearing soon :) can you see a pattern yet?) I think it was in the words of Time Team a "high status building", certainly a farm house of a wealthy land owner, maybe a longer history.

Old Wells Road, Shepton Mallet, Somerset, UK. A kilometer or so outside of the edge of the town (link below)

Wow, that is very cool. Thanks for the info. Sounds like a fun spot to scout around in. My wife also commented that she likes the picture even more now that she knows it in England.
