Something for the weekend #35

Cardross, St Peter’s seminary Cardross, near Glasgow Alamy Ruins

Fantastic photograph by Tom Kidd/Alamy that I just came across on The Guardian today. The article, The 10 best ruins in Britain, could definitely inspire some new writing this weekend. This photo features St Peter’s Seminary in Glasgow which opened in 1966 but closed in 1980.

All the ruins in the article are worth checking out but my other favourite is this photo by Alamy:

Witley Court Worcestershire

This is Witley Court and I love this quote from the article: “If it had remained intact it would have been one of the more boring of Britain’s stately homes, with its senseless repetition of statements of status. As a ruin it is potent.”

If you can see the potency in any of these ruins… get writing!
