Ricky Got Barrier Blunted

DRZ DIY skate spot aficionado, Ricky D emailed in with a couple of youtube links of him skating the newly painted "Country Cream" Barrier spot.

Here's what he had to say:
Its a great spot, Because its hard and quirky and nothing right about it haha in a good way. Lets hope it stays there for awhile, I have not told anyone about it as i wouldn't want your hard work ruined by kids.
Good work soldier, the commander is proud!

Barrier Spot

Once more the combined lack of money and new housing has worked in our favour. This little throwup spot provides a casual country skate, for the sideways inclined.



Worcester has some interesting heritage, the gateway to the midlands canal network it had an illustrious manufacturing past, including porcelain and textiles.

The Cinderalla spot we owe to this heritage, thankfully the credit crunch biting, has given us a spot for the time being before this piece of listed architecture becomes the home for Jags and Mercs.


2011 - Phoenix Time

Like a phoenix, home brew skateparks arise and thrive amongst the remains of the fallen and the disused. Patches of abandoned land provide fertile soil in which the craft of self build spots can thrive.

The 2011 strategy is to throw up small scale 'crete spots and use what's naturally available. A&E has a certain charm and plenty of materials left over from the 2010 demo job, thus the ledge was born.

Summer Bronx Sessions

It started with Pontus Alv and the Strongest of The Strange. An inpiration to our little mission, spearheaded and master minded by Commander Hughesy Hughes.

Spots were scoped out, plans were made, early mornings were worked. For two glorious years a home brew skatepark bloomed, only to be destroyed, at first by local kids (crumble quarter) and then finally by City Hall Officials Christmas 2010. RIP Bronxwood Wasp Banks.
