Week 49 – 26. Prohibited


This is a view of a derelict site from the local Railway station. The site had several Government Departments housed there where my husband and I worked. The Offices moved up to London and I transferred there and ended my working life commuting. My husband retired. The buildings were single storey prefabricated buildings which I believe were used in the war years as a hospital.

It is difficult to see now that the site has become overgrown, but the edges of the property were shored up with gravel to prevent anyone settling there with caravans etc. That is why I choose it for the ‘Prohibited’ theme.

The land was purchased by one of the big supermarket giants but the plans they put forward for building were never accepted. It’s future is still uncertain and it is a bit of an eyesore.
