My Abandoned Muse for The Silent Angels novel

It was difficult to find an abandoned building that encompassed the atmosphere, architectural features and vibe that I have in my head for this novel. The place where it all happens. As I trawl the internet and my books on URBEX, I find features of most of the buildings that I could use, but one building in particular has encapsulated my heart. I found it here, on the 28Days later website:

I have to post these photos. I hope that the photographer doesn’t mind!

There are also many other inspirations that I have found. I do not know names or locations of these buildings but they are helping me construct the reality of The Silent Angels and giving my characters places and objects to interact with.
