House on corner of Derby Rd and Lenton boulevard


Recommended Posts

Some of you might have noticed a large derelict house on the corner of Derby road and Lenton boulevard.

If you drive past at night, there are lights on........does anyone know the story behind this property ? 

I am sure it once hosted some great parties and had a swimming pool backing onto Cottesmore school ?

That house has been empty for years, there is a possibility that it is used, as there was a car parked on the drive, but it never seemed to move and finally ended up abandoned like the house.

I was once told that it was some kind of brothel 20 maybe 30 years ago.

It's been apparently derelict for as long as I can remember. As though there was never a time when it wasn't like that.

Over the years there has been an occasional change in the abandoned car(s) parked round the side.

It seems even too run-down to be a student house.

Hippo comment tells me she knows more? The Rod Stewart lookalike Terry Reid rented it off B_____d S_____r he lived there with 2 strippers one called Pepper, Terry used to be seen driving a big white yank soft top car around Nottingham he had go at comedy under the name Ziggy Reid we gave him a few gigs if one of his girls was performing, all I'm admitting to is I've been in that pool, Hippo?

You may find its not derelict at all, just fell into disrepair its definitely always been occupied, I used to see Terry's son out & about he looks just like his Dad, the bloke who owned it would now be 109.
