No Way In!

(Click photo for larger version. Press Back button to return here.)

Sometimes you see odd things when you are photographing your world. Today's My World photo shows a little mystery in Raynham Street in Ashton.

The photo was taken last year and has been waiting around for an opportunity for me to use it. I was intrigued by the puzzle of three garages behind a palisade fence with clearly no way for the garages to be used. Speaking to a neighbour I got the impression that there may have been some sort of dispute over ownership of the land or payment of ground rent or something of that sort. It may just have been that the land has been sold and fenced off.

I shall have to go back and see whether anything has changed. It is adjacent to the site of the new mosque that will replace the one just off Penny Meadow so this parcel of land may have been part of the land involved in the site acquisition.

I only hope that there isn't someone wanting to get their car out of one of the garages!

See Google Street View of this location.

"No Way In!" is my contribution to this week's "My World" feature. Please check out the other blogs participating in this week's My World.


  1. You do, indeed, see strange things when you're out with a camera. My problem is I see the best things when I'm out without a camera, LOL.
    It will be interesting to find out of this parcel of land did become part of the new mosque or if those three garages are still there, apparently useless but perhaps filled with treasures.

  2. Judging by the vegetation they've been like that for a while - what's the green wheelie bin doing there?

  3. I hope there are no vehicles stuck inside!

  4. Hah - that's funny. I remember seeing a photo of a garage in someone's back garden - with a tree right in front of it?!
