Creepy Lane

Better large on black.


While I was back at my parents house over Christmas I went for a walk around town, and realised just how much has changed since I was a kid. New housing estates, re-worked roads, school's changed almost beyond recognition...


This is a little lane where I used to play as a kid, just off the road from my parents house. It doesn't lead anywhere, and was built at the same time as the little housing estate I lived on - in case it was ever expanded. It never was, so it never did lead to anything other than fields and was overgrown for as long as I've known it. It was a long enough lane that we had a number of "bases" built in it, and I fell out of the trees a couple of times whilst expanding our little tree-house hideouts. We always called it "creepy lane", and while the entrance to it is no longer as overgrown as it once was - I'll be damned if this isn't as creepy now as it was in my imagination as a kid.
