May 01: Nursery Rhyme "There Was A Crooked Man"

There was a crooked man, and he walked a crooked mile.
He found a crooked sixpence upon a crooked stile.
He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse,
And they all lived together in a little crooked house

Today I ventured out at lunch time is search of somewhere new and I found this wonderfull row of old houses that now stand derelict... Lucky for me there was no 'Danger of Death' sign like on Wednesday, but there must have been a sign I missed and the security guard was not that happy about my presence...

Alternative Mother Hubbards Cupboard shot and this months Word List for anyone who need inspiration.
Those look a little shabby. I would love to explore.

If there was a Security Guard, then perhaps someone has bought this wonderful set of cottages! Open to the fresh air at this moment!

What a cool place and great capture

Great shot, but what is the security guard guarding? It looks as though he must have been sleeping on the job and the place has been ransacked.

Wow, what a cool and interesting shot.

Bet these would look lovely with a bit of work and paint! ;) And a few more things, like windows, doors.. :D Cool find!

Well I am sorry that no one lives here because those old cottages look far too pretty & attractive to be left empty & left to rot........squatters should come & do them up!

Thank you all for you lovely comments and Favs, and for getting this shot on the PP.
This is part of an old RAF Base in Uxbrige which has 90% been flattened to make way for ne development. There is just one small area of about four roads that has not jet been bulldozed.
In fact my 'Mud' shot from the 17th show what the rest of the site is like:

Would be fascinating to invetigate round here. Shame they have to bulldoze them but I suppose in this day and age it's cheaper to do that and rebuild and you can fit more on.

They have character. I hope someone decides to renovate them rather than bulldoze. FAV

Fascinating find. I'd like to explore them... It's really too bad if they are left like that...
