Closing time at the Horse and Groom
The Horse and Groom on the A505 between Baldock and Royston shut up shop many years ago. The wreckage echoes with past pints and darts matches. The ruins are a canvas for street art. The ripped roof, battered walls and uncertain flooring offer contrasts of shadow and light, vibrant and pastel colours. In the photographs below, we approach the old boozer, wander through its bars, peer in through the windows, exit through the car park and drive way.
