SCOTLAND. In Twelve Images.

Well the prospect of travelling again inches slowly closer, though at the moment as the rain streaks down my windows and the wind bounces around my garden, that prospect seems as far away as ever.

SANKEY VALLEY. A Cygnet Ring.

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 […]
