CHESTER. A Random Day Out With Photos.

Well, it’s that lull between Christmas now past, and the yet to arrive New Year. Those few days where you hang about in a festive limbo, gathering your thoughts and getting your breath back after sustained attacks on the turkey with all the trimmings and bouts of serious cracker pulling. I decided to get out of the house and get some fresh air but as it’s still that time of […]

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 […]
