I am fascinated by overlooked, neglected and abandoned spaces and the life that they take on after they have fallen out of use by humans. These urban wonderlands are historically and visually fascinating and sometimes just simply stunning in their beauty as with the ponds at Goldenhill.
I don’t mind if people want to use my photographs so long as you give me credit as the photographer and if you make shed loads of money from them (an unlikely scenario I know but one might as well be optimistic) please share some – it would come in handy!
The Mid Wales Hospital
Goldenhill Ponds, Stoke on Trent, England. An industrial wasteland left after the final closure of the Clough Hall iron and steel works, this small space wedged between the railway and the canal has been reclaimed by nature. In the summer it is a riot of wildflowers and weeds and is as beautiful as Monet’s garden at Giverny. I found them while walking with Dog along the Canal and had only my mobile phone with me so the phoitographs aren’t the best quality.
