The Cedars: Abandoned House in London

Published

on

If you have ever walked the trails in Springbank Park in London Ontario you probably have noticed the eerie, yet beautiful old abandoned house on the banks of the Thames river. This once magnificent house was built in the 1880’s and served as boating/athletic club until it was sold in 1909 to the Lamb family who’s family and descendants occupied the house until 1978. It was sold at this time due to a divorce to Drewlo Holdings, who rented the property until 2013. The last tenants where evicted for letting the property become so run-down and it has been abandoned ever since.

Lamb a former resident, lobbied to have The Cedars declared a heritage property and was successful in his endeavour. I have been meaning to photography this house for a long time now, but unfortunately the house is very closely watched and is monitored by a security system. My best bet to get photos of this impressive abandoned home without getting a trespassing charge was to wait until late fall when all the foliage was dead and get some shoot from across the river at Springbank Park. The best viewing is in non summer months as the house becomes almost invisible behind all the trees.

I would love to get onto the property one day and get some better shots but for now here are some nice photos of “The Cedars” abandoned house. The location of this abandoned house can be found on our Abandoned Places Map.
