I took a walk along a nearby stretch of the Sankey Valley again a few days ago. The world outside is easing into life, winter is gone away and spring is getting into it’s stride as summer approaches. I’ve blogged about the Sankey valley before ( there will be a link below if I remember ). It was the first canal in the country but not built as such. It […]
lachlanscameraUK resident, in north west Lancashire. It was time for a career change and a lifelong interest in photography has opened up a new path with new challenges. As well as submissions to photo libraries and magazines I'm also putting together a selection of e-book titles through Amazon Kindle.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so this time around I’ll go more on the pictures and less on the words. Give you a break from my ramblings for at least one post anyway. This time my time wandering blog takes us back to January of 2020, just before the wheels fell off the world and everything stopped. I live fairly close to the resort town of […]
To those of you with the stamina to stick with the ramblings of my blog, if you do then thank you. I appreciate your presence out there in the electric fuzz of the internet.

It’s a journey I’ve made by the coastline hugging rail route quite a few times. From the southern busy-ness of Barrow and it’s shipyards, up past Ravenglass with it’s Roman Fort and miniature railway. Then along the open stretches from Seascale, past Nethertown and its reclaimed houses […]
It could almost be a song title. The date is May, 2011. By the dubious magic of my time travelling blog we have landed in the Cumbrian town of Keswick in the “drink in with your eyes gorgeous” Lake District. I admit that this may not be the prettiest part of the town and I’ll be revisiting with more sumptuous images later but I was intrigued by the name. I […]
A little to the east of Manchester is Ashton under Lyne, nestling by the Pennine Hills. My time travelling blog has brought you here on a brisk day in February 2012. It’s a town I have a liking for, perhaps a little careworn in places but there’s plenty to take in and see. The market is a delight, with a market hall and an open market. While just off the […]
