Reflections of decay


The humble raindrop can be a buildings worst enemy sometimes.
This asylum and the state of it was quite a sad story, it was closed in 1999 and several attempts to change the area into a business park failed, probably because of the fact that it was in a remote location.
In a controversial transaction, the building was sold for £227,000 and almost immediately afterwards, vans moved in to remove the slate roof which was believed to be worth in excess of £1million.

Subsequently water started eating the building from the inside. This particular morning, the low sun shone through the large windows, the reflections gave the wooden floor a glass appearance and the decay and damp sensations were momentarily replaced by this beauty.
