Abandoned Caravan Park

Ok so this post is a little overdue.. In March we were given a project based on the atmosphere of a particular place. After researching various derelict hospitals and military camps I came across an abandoned nudist camp situated on one of the many cliff tops on the Isle of Wight. The caravan park opened in the 1970s but was forced to close due to various landslides causing many of the buildings to fall into the sea. It was a bit of an adventure climbing through the ivy and trekking down winding goat tracks but it was well worth it. Once I got to the heart of the site it was incredible. It looked as though whoever had stayed there had just got up and left, leaving behind belongings, cars, furniture even personal letters. Below are some of the photographs I took there.
