    Default St Athan boys' village


    History (sort of) here via the BBC -http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-south-east-wales-23882642
    It's totally trashed & no one wants to buy it because it is right next to a power station.
    Since the '90's the local kids have used this place to hone their destructive tendencies & now it looks like somewhere adolescents learn which end of a spray can produces the best knob graff.
    Oh & it was pissing down..........

    Pictures

    I put the poppies (what's left of them) back onto the monument..

























    Sigh.....

    I accidentally put this in the wrong category - should be in Leisure sites - oops.

    Visited this site a few years ago, I think its gone into even more decline now, which is a shame. Lovely pics though!

DerelictPlaces is a forum for people with an interest in the history and documentation of disused, derelict and abandoned buildings to come together and share their experiences, photography and historical findings. Our military, industrial and historical heritage is fast disappearing under the pressure of regeneration, the need for new housing, and often through simple neglect; Our aim is to document these places before they disappear entirely.
