taken 10 years ago, 3 km from Swindon, Great Britain

Thamesdown Transport depot, Barnfield Road, Swindon
Thamesdown Transport depot, Barnfield Road, Swindon
The depot occupies the site that previously was used as a municipal refuse incinerator. It was never that successful and only lasted about 15 years before closing. The bus depot was formerly in the centre of Swindon and the bus company outgrew it after many years there. The land in the foreground was previously an allotment site. Unfortunately, some years ago it was found that the land was contaminated with lead and was vacated. It remains in the local Council's landbank.

Update July 2009: the land in the foreground is being made ready for the construction of a supermarket LinkExternal link
