Abandoned houses of the Newtownards Road

Snapped from the bus, hence generally poor framing and photography.

This one has been empty for as long as I have been commuting to Belfast ( 16 years ). There used to be an Opel Manta and a Ford Granada in the driveway, but after some religious graffiti was sprayed on the front of the house, about five years ago, there appeared to be an effort to clear it out and board it up.

These three are more recent abandonments. Such a shame to see good houses derelict.
