All that remains

Now in an advanced state of decay and due to be demolished very soon, this is all that remains of the harbour station at Folkestone, UK. It used to connect the boat trains to Europe (including the Orient Express) and played a significant role during the second world war, transporting troops across the channel to France. These historic connections are sadly not enough to preserve the site and is soon to be lost to history to make way for a new marina development.

There was no special access needed to get these two shots, I just took then through the surrounding fence.

Future echo?

Things to come?

Taken during our time away in Northumberland.

We passed this service station on a drive towards the Scottish border. A closer view of the cafe can be seen here.

Will dwindling resources and changes in technology lead to more scenes like this? One day for sure I believe (hopefully not in a Mad Max sort of way though).
