Great Royaldevon 2016-02-15 5:45

Hello Ann,

Have you read Monica Ali's 'Brick Lane'?
I had never really heard of the area until I read that book about 12 years ago!

Your photograph has captured and portrayed an area and a mood.
You had a very tight scene to deal with but, in some ways, it has helped to condense and magnify the effect. The graffiti is random and vibrant, whilst the litter suggests decay and disrespect! A place to explore at daytime but maybe, threatening at night!

Have a lovely day,
Bev :-)

Default To Royaldevon: Cross but not angry!

Hi Bev

The 'cross' is part of the protective fencing. There is a 6 metre drop in elevation behind the fence. The bats were safe too as there was fencing across the entrance to their bigger deeper and darker cave behind me here. They roost there in winter in their tens of thousands. 2/3 of the bats fled when a movie was made at this location several years ago but they are back and now protected.
