|Overgrown lawn - 2011|
This shot was taken to show the height of the grass after a holiday away. With the camera almost at ground level it accentuated the worn appearance of the patio slabs which are 18 inches long - and there is no step in them.
It was the wind and waves that have given this cliff a weathered look at Mawgan Porth in Cornwall.
|Mawgan Porth - 2011|
In Gloucestershire I came across this old farm shed along the side of the road between Gatcombe and Awre.
|Farm shed - 2008|
The roof has gone from one side and ivy is beginning to take over, increasing the worn look. You could not see through the window to find out whether the other half is in use.
I'm not sure who took my last picture which is definitely the oldest and possibly the most interesting.
|Empty stables - North Yorkshire|
The stables have been 'mucked' out; bags have been filled with what looks like horse manure; the back wall is shored up with timber. The place has seen better days.
Today the buildings have gone to be replaced by a modern monstrosity of a housing estate.
A battle is currently in progress to prevent the building of a further 500-700 houses on the adjacent green belt and school playing fields along Green Lane, Kirklevington on the outskirts of Yarm.
