Ilford Park

Hello,

These here pictures were taken in an abandoned settlement for polish people who stayed in UK after the Second World War. Originally the place was an American military hospital, the Polish moved in just after the soldiers went back across the ocean. The community was shrinking throughout the years as many were leaving in search for better job. Finally, in the beggining of the 90’s, the last people to live moved to new development just around a corner, this time purposefully build for them. Since then the barracks stood empty, gradually giving place to nature, until sometime after 2008 (when I have visited the place) it had been taken to the ground. I have noticed it accidentally on google maps. Enjoy.

Zdrowaśki, Długas
