We recently had the pleasure of visiting Beamish Museum in County Durham, England. It was a great day in terms of the weather, if anything a little too hot for such a long walk, but much better than it would have been had it been raining. Here is a collection of photos taken on the day. Some of the images were taken on mobile phone and a few on digital SLR.
I would highly recommend you pay the place a visit, it’s expanding all the time, with most of the buildings being taken down brick by brick from their original locations and painstakingly rebuilt within the museum. There is currently a small steet setup with shops and other businesses, houses, a steam train and station, a mine with shaft you can go down, and a farm. There is a 1950 town set being built at present, which should be a great addition to an already exceptional museum experience.
Thanks to a break in the weather, we got out and about for a walk. Mrs T and I decided to head for the Red Rock area of Wigan and have a walk along the canal there. Here are a selection of photographs I took with my phone camera. Hope you enjoy them.
There is a map at the bottom of the page to show you where Red Rock is.
We popped into Port Issac on our way back to base during our recent holiday in Cornwall, and what a delight it was. Here are a few photos of our visit, if you find yourself in the area I would recommend having a look around.
On our recent holiday in Cornwall we happened upon the fishing harbour village of Polperro. It was a great location for taking some photographs and having a mooch around. Here are some of the images taken, on what turned out to be a glorious day. There is a map at the bottom of this post with its location, if you fancy giving it a visit.
