Abandoned Lives Project

The idea behind the ‘abandoned lives project’ started when out walking passing by abandoned buildings started me thinking about the history behind them. However I started thinking about the people who lived in them, their lives and why they left. I also started looking at not just houses but abandoned mines, and statements left in the landscape like standing stones. Hence abandoned lives, rather than abandoned buildings as it was much more than buildings. Over the next year I will be adding images from my walks to the project album with any historical information I can find.
