Z is for Zulu Farm

Zulu farm is between Didcot & Harwell and no doubt it was a thriving place at one time back in the 1900's it was know ans Zulu Barn. The farm has diminished with the A34 cutting through the property and now thevbuilding of a new housing estate has taken the rest away

 Zulu Farm as it is at the moment, most likely the old barn is over to the left

 This was part of the farmland looking towards Didcot, the construction you see is a new college being built

 This looks towards Didcot Power Station, beyond the fence is the new estate

 Soon the towers and the tall sack will be demolished and the original Didcot Power Station will be no more and the mounds of earth you see here will be gone and in their place new houses. A sad vision of it's former self.
That's it for this years A to Z Challenge I hope you have enjoyed my offerings.
Thanks for visiting

  1. I don't know if I'd want to live where there was once a power station. Congrats, Bill, on another great outing with the A to Z. I appreciate you stopping by and visiting me now and then. :-)

  2. Thank you for all of the wonderful photos - it has been a great AtoZ.

  3. Well done Bill on completing the Challenge. I've been by Didcot on the train many times. At least the houses will be on a brownfield site.

  4. I enjoyed trekking through your photos Bill, great theme you've got going here. Well done amigo.

  5. Well done! You made it to the end, and all with interesting photos! That first photo of the farm yard looks like a lot of farms I've seen on back roads around here. Many of them are doing well enough, they just have rather dingy buildings!

  6. It has a bit of a desolate look to it. Congratulations on finishing the challenge!
