GLASGOW. Behold The Necropolis.

Sorry if this seems a morbid post but The Glasgow Necropolis is a fascinating place. It dates from the early 1830’s and was part of the movement that established private cemeteries. The existing system of burials being the responsibility of the local parish was beginning to buckle under the strains of death rates and lack of space within existing burial grounds crammed into town and city centres. As was the […]

BOLTON. It Was Christmas Eve On The Market.

First of all, Happy New Year!! Yes I know it’s the sixth of January and 2020 is getting into it’s stride but I have been busy. Mince pies don’t eat themselves any more than roast turkey and all the trimmings does. Things on the blog will be a bit Wibbley Wobbley / Timey Wimey for a couple of posts until the new year and I catch up with one another. […]

Nevertheless for some reason you can’t settle. […]

That said it has a bustling town centre and market, plus decent-ish transport links into Manchester. Currently there’s an express guided busway but there is a feeling growing that an extension of Manchester’s Metrolink Tram system to […]

ASHTON – UNDER – LYNE. Art In The Street.

I’ve mixed feelings about public art, not against it as such but some of it leaves me feeling a bit underwhelmed. I suppose it depends on what you see as public art. Many a town centre of a certain age has it’s stone flocks of statues to the great and good, local worthies and benefactors. Or commemorations of local events. At least they look like something. I’m not that inspired […]
