    Arrow Yarnton Sewage Works, Oxfordshire - November 2008


    As part as are Local sunday Morning get together this was another site on our list. Visited with Owlet and Batroy.

    I had never been to this site before but the other 2 had. Not a massive site but pretty interesting. I'm not to sure when it closed down but its been a while i should imagen sometimes in the 90's. It main purpose was to serve the villages of Yarnton and Kidlington in Oxfordshire just west of Oxford.

    Site today is pretty vandilised and is often home to the odd homeless person.

    Here's some of my Pictures -



































    Again all my pictures will be uploaded to my Site and Flickr later see my signature.

    Much as I hate to admit it, I'm liking the artwork. A lot.
    Do it safely, or not at all.

    Great stuff. Sewage is my fave subject, after mines, all those pipes and flanges are ace. The retard button is quite a nice thing and the teddy bear shot is beautifully disturbing.

    I agree it's somewhat distrurbing, Lithium, especially in b&w. For those of you that remember Drop the Dead Donkey, I'd say he was 'doing a Damien'. Love the overgrown waterbeds. :)

    It was a good way to round off a morning and thanks to Owlet for pointing out the mud-free path. My photos won't tell the story any better than those above. The graffiti is new since I was there last, it makes a change to see some decent artwork instead of mindless tagging.
