suburban decy

walking through the countryside on the edge of prim and proper surburbia was the last place i thought i'd stumble across some wonderful urban decay.

i think the building was once a squash court connected to the nearby golf course. it was an unusual octohedral shape and the inside into appeared to be segmented into identical compartments, presumably the glass walled squash courts once upon a time. there's a school on the other side of the field and the building appeared to be a convenient hole-up for skiving teenagers; grafitti and assorted drug paraphenalia were everywhere. it was a damp and dark day today which made photography difficult, but the musty smell of the weeds and rotten wood gave the place a suitably dank and decayed feel...
