105/366 - A nice little project ...

An abandoned cottage at Castle-an-dinas that I found while poking around up at Rogers' Tower today. Apparently this was occupied until the 70's when the occupants found they were expecting a baby. Because there is almost no access other than trekking for miles across muddy fields they were told that there was no hope of getting any medical help in an emergency so they left and moved into the nearby village. Eventually vandals burned out what remained.

 

It's not exactly urban desolation or industrial decay - I wonder what the term is for this kind of rural abandonment ;-)
