    Hello :D
    It's been a while.

    Three months ago to the day, I was in an accident and broke several bones in my body [mostly fucking up my right elbow] and bleh bleh bleh to cut a long story short I just lost all confidence in going out incase I fell again and I damaged myself even more :/
    After weeks of physio, my right arm now moves down to about 120 degrees. Wooohooo, so Physio lady said I can now start to drive...
    Being off work forever and slowly learning to use my left hand for everything, it has certainly been grim times.
    I needed to get back in the game, and decided to go to Polphail!

    Couldn't have picked a worse day, it rained the whole time, but it made the place more atmospheric.
    Got the car ferry from Gourock to Dunoon, Inverkip was looking as sinister as ever : )

    Polphail was built during the early 1970s as accomodation for around 500 workers at a local oil platform construction yard in Portavadie. But the project was doomed from the outset.
    Despite the UK oil boom of the 1970s, the yard was not completed and the houses were never occupied, instead falling into ruin over the years.

    Numerous proposals to revitalise the ghost village failed to attract sponsors, but the BBC reported in June 2009 that Polphail was finally set to be demolished.
    Site owner Alan Bradley said that within a year demolition would clear the area for 270 new homes, but the project could take five to ten years to complete.

    In October 2009, six street artists known as Agents of Change decorated Polphail’s battered walls prior to demolition.

    Two years later it's still standing.
    Trashed, but still standing.
    Home to a colony of bats and some sheep.
