An eyesore


Theme of the month for my online photo group for April was 'Something I dislike'. I chose to submit the above image, of a derelict greenhouse. It's on the site of what was once a thriving little garden centre just a mile outside Saltaire village, right beside Hirst Lock, which is one of the more picturesque parts of the local canal. Such a shame that a) the garden centre had to close and b) no-one is doing anything with the site. It is falling into ruin, with the three glasshouses and the huts gradually being reclaimed by nature. Not only is it an eyesore but it is also potentially dangerous if children got into it, with all that broken glass and twisted metal.

  1. Do your local magistrates impose communal service as punishment, as they do here in Germany? Here, with the necessary safety clothing, is the perfect job.
