Urban Degeneration

Near my home there is an old hospital village. It's been there for approx 100 years but was closed a decade or so ago. since then councils and buyers have argued about what the land should hold and no-one has come forward to restore or rebuild. Now it slowly crumbles into decay and I have no doubt will eventually be bulldozed.

I find it sad that such a vibrant and busy place has been allowed to become a ghost town, only frequented by dog walkers, ghost hunters and vandals.

When I found this site of urban decay, I photographed it, as I am sure the buildings just won't be there in the years to come.

This link is to an image of the old Bangour Village Church, build specifically for the hospital residents, in the centre of the hospital village, now boarded up and closed but still a magnificent example of classic red brick architecture.
