Disappearing behind the weeds.

By franken
The artwork is by a local artist, "Reddy," who appeared to only work in the Vale of Glamorgan area. It was done many years ago and can be found on the side of what was a public toilet block.
The toilet block is grade 2 listed and is now in a bad state of repair. The building is blocked off by wire mesh fencing and is currently being held together by supports. The shot was taken through the wire mesh.
The building was going to be refurbished and turned into a restaurant before the virus saga and it can be assumed that it will be done one day.

I've added a mono.

I hope the art work will be kept if / when the building is renovated.

Trying to look casual, loitering outside a toilet block? Hmmm...

From toilet block to restaurant, sounds strange though it appeals to British humour Grin

"Inside the former lavatory, mood lighting meets a mouth-watering seasonal menu inspired by herbs, homemade liqueurs and local ingredients such as Kentish Town honey. If its extensive list of quality cocktails isn’t enough to lure you in its unique décor might be, with toilet signs and cistern-lined walls serving as a reminder of its unusual history."
