Lots of decay going on there and I like the simple composition. I also like the new-looking signs and lock on there as a contrast.
The glorious weather we're having has given it a slightly harsh look though.

I think you post the first entry more often than anyone else! Good work getting the comp under way.

I find the shadow along the top of the wall a little offputting other than that bang on theme and well spotted.

Judging by some of the comments elsewhere SprocketRocket appears to be reading my mind ahead of me thinking my thoughts. Spooky. Basically what he said. I might add though (to show I am capable of independent thinking) that a tighter, near square, crop would have looked good.
