Had a lovely walk in Sankey Valley, through to Carr Mill reservoir today. Great to have the sun shining for a change, and somewhat milder temperatures. Well worth a visit, if you’re looking for somewhere new to spend time with the family. All photos taken on mobile phone only.
According to Wikipedia, Anglezarke is a sparsely populated civil parish in the Borough of Chorley in Lancashire, England. It is dominated by reservoirs that were built to supply water to Liverpool, and a large expanse of moorland with evidence of Bronze Age settlements. Popular with walkers and tourists, it lies in the West Pennine Moors in Lancashire, sandwiched between the moors of Withnell and Rivington, and is close to the towns of Chorley, Horwich and Darwen.
As part of our recent trip to the North East, we spent the day in Durham, around the cathedral and river walk. We also called by to see the Angel of the North, while we were in the area Here is a selection of photos taken on the day, so with mobile phone camera and a few with digital SLR. Hope you enjoy them.
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.
When we recently visited Cornwall, one of the places we stopped by at was Padstow. A great place, great weather and a great boat trip enjoyed by all. Here are some photos of the day.
