    Arrow Residentual building/Terrace of 3 Selby, June 2009


    My first report. It is slightly late becasue i have been concentrating on my A-Levels, but have almost finished my exams and am procrastiniating more revision. I had Urban Decay as a topic in my art project and this introduced me to a new found obsession. in the next week i will try to upload my other visits. Anyway, here it is, better late than never.
    A terrace of three houses, most likely a dwelling for farmworkers on land near by. I couldnt find any history of the place on the net. Very close to BOCM Pauls, selby. I included two photos from a small building there. I have yet to explore the larger sections of BOCM Pauls.
    I couldnt find any record of this building on DP. if anyone is visiting the industrial areas in selby, this place is a must to suppliment the trip.
    Makes for a frenzy of peeling paint
    I didnt see a single scratch of vandalism in the place, thank god. no furnature to speak of however, exept for an oil drum and some bare built in cupboards



















    some of the floors were very suspect, with this extreme weather damage in far section of building


    Two from derelict industrial building in walking distance

    Nice one man. Difficult to make residential buildings look interesting, you've done it really nicely.

    Feeling your A-level pain too, good luck and godspeed

    Nice colours, man!
    You made a dull place look good.
    In a surreal world it all makes sense
