Well! This class seems to be yielding result, Chris...
Chris: Indeed Ray, my photography is definitely starting to get worse..

Land's End looks more fascinating!
Chris: Thank you Philine: this is part of what used to be the Admiralty buildings in Bath, which are now disused
A very stark image, Chris!
Chris: Deliberately so Elizabeth, I've known these buildings all my life and now they are being demolished
This looks pretty much what i thought the end of the line would look like Chris...
i like the dreary atmosphere that you captured....petersmile
Chris: All deliberate Peter, thank you
Are you sure this isn't Droitwich and not the end of the line, Chris? Or are they one and the same???
Chris: It could be Droitwich but for the lack of rain Ginnie..
it could be Ray's cabin for today before being fired by the dark forces of nature (love that caterpillar truck turned onto a wide Vogue Range Rover with an oil drilling extension). Very complete image, Chris
Chris: Thank you JC, these buildings have come to the end of their usefulness

I think it is the end of the line in a Beeching sense.
Chris: Very much so Mike, not for a transformation into the inevitable housing

Chris: In a previous existence Lisl

I have a friend who used to work there. He used to something with the Royal Fleet Auxiliary and when he wasn't bobbing about on the seas being a Captain, he used to be in charge of a desk here.
Chris: A desk admiral - sounds useful doesn't it
A very melancholy photo, Chris.
Chris: It is Pauline, I expect you used to work there
A new destroyer in the frame!
Chris: Exactly Martin
Great shot Chris love the light in the foreground grass!
Chris: All now has been flattened & cleared
It looks very high on a hill with a great view. What will end up there instead, I wonder.
Chris: Housing Mary
Brown field site for new housing development? End of the line for what? Is that a bridge in the background? So many questions, so little illumination.
Chris: It was part of the MOD complex in Bath, now redundant, the site destined for housing

Is this where Chad lives?
Chris: Not quite Anne..
i like the black and white
Chris: Thank you
You've captured the depressed feeling brilliantly, Chris.
Chris: That is what I wanted it to be Bev

It stopped raining in Droitwich, That will be more than end of the line, maybe end of the world! Are you planning on hi-jacking the blackdog's spot?
Chris: No I'm not Louis, he is in a class of his own
Your presentation makes this feel all rather sad Chris, which I guess it is if these buildings are very familiar to you.
Chris: They have come to the end of their days now Brian

Are they going to take this one down too.
Love the dark silhouette.
Chris: It has all been flattened now Astrid
Definitely a gloomy view!
Chris: End of an era Tom. The MOD came to Bath after the outbreak of war in 1939, now they've moved on to the delights of Bristol
lovely effects here Chris! Although it is about to be demolished!
