  1. We seem to get more and more sites like this - making way for 250 more look-alike estates.

  3. Was the building condemned or was it purchased by some wealthy/greedy organization or contractor?

  4. Change is the only constant. They've cleared all the land around a deserted house near me and I'm waiting to see if they'll demolish it or refurbish it.

  5. When you see land being cleared in our area, the fear is that another 500 apartments are about to be built.

  8. A sad sight in today's world. Change is constant and never ending. Glad you captured it before it all disappears. Someday no one will recognize the site.

    1. I can't help wondering how much the owners made out of selling the place, was it worth the dislike the locals have for them

  9. Speaking from personal experience, developers are dirtbags whose word is completely worthless.

  10. Sad to see such a neat old house go. In my part of the world it's usually a beautiful natural area I end up grieving, but they'll do this too. More and more as our society gets on, leaving more charming building from an increasingly remote past, and fewer untouched areas to "develop".

    1. Worst thing is it was a very nice garden surrounding the place and a nice water feature to the right which was attached to Bradfords Brook, now its a ruin

  11. Going on all around me too - cute little ranch style homes of the '60's valued around $250,000 being torn down to put up huge 3 story "McMansions" with over a million $ price tags! And don't even get me started on new roads supposedly required to cut through lovely old neighborhoods - it's all very upsetting this thing they call 'progress.'
    I'm back from Patagonia Bill and will try to visit here more often again!
    Always enjoy your photos and such - Mary
