Objets Trouvés part 2
Photos from Jill Angood, and from the Townhead (where I was born and bred) archive rescued after the buildings had been left derelict and looted in the mid to late nineties. Brilliantly, the place is now restored to its former ("we've got big plans for this room...") glory, and even improved by the microclimate created by trees we planted there when I was tiny (it could be a pretty bleak place back then, see previous post). It is now off grid and powered by the wind and solar power proposed at the beginning but not realized for thirty years! And the recent unpleasant legal battle to keep the place from the nasty hands of developers is won and done. I spent the day there on saturday and I'm a bit speechless about the experience...
Pete, I have lots more pics like these which I'll send or bring up.
