BUXTON. A Temple On A Hill.

A favourite destination of mine is the Derbyshire Spa town of Buxton. It’s a relatively easy rail journey from where I live and an enjoyable one too. Climbing up and out of Manchester from Piccadilly station and into the Peak District. For part of the route the railway runs alongside the Peak Forest Canal to Whaley Bridge, that makes it useful for a day walking the canal. Train out and […]

MANCHESTER. In Monochrome – Part Two

So, following up Part One, naturally, here’s the rest of the shots I took on my easy ramble around the city. I headed back to Victoria Station, one of three main stations in the city, it’s a Victorian wedding cake of a building, the other two, Piccadilly and the smaller Oxford Road are more glitzy and slick. Though the buildings at Oxford Road always make me think of Darth Vader’s […]
