Photos and Thoughts of (not so) Old Dinnington

Saw this thought provoking piece by a Dinnington-born photographer Stuart Bingham and thought I would share.

“Seeing one of the most important places of your childhood in a complete state of dereliction is a saddening thing.”

“The destruction of the ‘welfare’ is not, as some would have it, a comment of modern youth.  It is a sad indictment of modern adulthood.”

“That modern men and families have allowed the building to descend in to its current state is the really shame and stands as a testament to what has been lost, not just in Dinnington, but in working class communities across the north of England.”
