    Default wrecked pub


    ok, so for my second post of the night, this one is no more exciting than the previous i'm afraid. these pics are a couple of months old now, and really just 'snap' reference shots for my night photography, but thought i'd pop them up here anyway.

    i passed this on the way to picking up my friend on route to the airport for a trip to the states, and thought it was best not to stop to shoot it. however, i did anyway, leaving a suitcase, passport, tickets, etc, in the motor, and checking it out.
    there was a cellar, but i decided that due to having to fly to Arizona in a few hours, and no-one knowing i was here, that i would leave it alone.

    this pub is trashed, and there is now talk of it being made into a a hotel. i think it has been stood derelict for about 8 years.

    again, apologies that it is less than inspiring, and i promise there will be some good stuff approaching in the near future!

    haha, got it in one!

    there is a petrol station a little further back down the road that is equally trashed, with furniture and junk on the forecourt to.

    I know the one, I got in there before that was trashed as well years ago :-)

    I think the horse and groom closed in 2002? Had a half decent caravan in the garden I saw go up in flames on my way back home one night....

    Good work fella!

    i photographed the petrol station at night once, but was 'sloppy', and someone was sleeping inside one of the doors at the back. my camera flash woke him (that and me pushing the door blindly into his sleeping mass). it was a nightmare trying to make a speedy exit with the piles of menacingly sharp and/or slippery junk everywhere.

    Thats very local to me, I've been in there a few times too. The cellar is small but very solid.
    Why go through a door when there's a perfectly good window?
