CHORLEY. Flat Iron Market Day.

Slowly catching up with 2020, think I’m nearly there. As usual my Christmas was being sorted on the hoof as the last few days of the year and the decade tumbled past. Luckily I only needed a few bits and pieces so I headed over to Chorley knowing that I would be certain of a good chance of getting what I was looking for. Plus it was a Tuesday which […]

HORWICH. A Busy Town Under The Moors.

One of my favourite places to visit are the Terraced Gardens up at Rivington, I’ve posted about them in the past. There’s a link thingy below for that post. My route there takes me though the town of Horwich. Like a lot of places the traditional industries and employers have moved or faded away.

Well Winter has everything in it’s icy fingered grasp around my way. The rain and the unfriendly temperatures don’t encourage you to move far from hearth or home. While warmer times and longer days seem just a bit too far away. Keeping myself busy I’ve been sorting and editing the backlog of images that built up towards the end of last year and I’ve got as far as a selection […]

CHESTER. Under The Underpass.

Every once in a while a scene presents itself to you so completely that it would almost be a criminal act not to take the shot. I had taken myself off to Chester today to get out of the house and grab some fresh air and a change of scene. As usual I travelled there by train and from the railway station and walked into the town centre. Part of […]
