To start off 2012 a trip to the local, the old favourite. It’s been a while, 18 months or more since I last visited and nearly 4 years since the first visit. I’ve documented just about every square inch of the site so today it was time for something different. Time for the film camera to make an outing with my favourite C41 B&W Film. Things have changed over the years, it’s hard to believe the change. But the buildings that remain are someone more beautiful in decay than the relatively unscathed and clean looking exteriors from 2008. Nothing seems to have happened with redevelopment, the last story regarding a potential elderly care village was muted in October 2010 and since then nothing. If anything perhaps a fitting end to the site would be to let nature reclaim the site back after 90 years.
For a more detailed history of site please read one of my previous reports here
It’s fair to say 2011 wasn’t a vintage year for me, illness and other factors meant I wasn’t half as active as previous years. 2012 shall be different, stay tuned.
