Glasgow, Scotland

The land was previously occupied by a nightclub called 'The Temple' which mysteriously burned down. It is now surrounded by fencing but has one point of access where there is evidence of people having pushed their way through. Many objects - umbrellas, traffic cones and clothing litter the site which can be viewed from the pavement which looks down on the site like a stage.
