Bloody hell... That is indeed grim!

Hi chaps

I am beginning to see these places not as “grim” but as photographic opportunities. Oh boy do I live in an opportunistic part of the country.

I shouldn’t mock my area as there are plenty of local areas of scenic beauty within a few minutes drive. You only have to travel over the moors to the coast or head up the dales so perhaps the photographs represent a reflection of my state of mind!

So, does that mean the end of the Grim Places tag Kenny

To be replaced by the more P.C. Opportunistic Places perhaps.

I was just getting my eye in as well.

Or maybe, if more of us add the less savory scenes onto Google Earth, local councils may then begin to see that this is how the world views their area. And then perhaps they might ensure less photo opportunities of this kind... Then again, pigs might fly!

Dont worry Jethro I have never considered myself to be P.C. in the political sense so "Grim places" is here to stay.

Si keep off the local councils topic this is a civil forum and one or both of us has steam starting to come out of our ears!

Keep looking for those grim places, you will know you have found a good one when you daren't get out your camera for fear of being mugged!

Good to see you carry a great British value, putting aside the Political Correct crap. Unlike most of the brainwashed, now-a-days.
