This afternoon I visited the lovely little village of Wrenbury in Cheshire. It was recommended to me as it has a very interested scarecrow competition throughout the village this week. There were close to 130 entries to the contest, which was organized by the local primary school. There were some very funny and well thought out entries and it gave a very strong sense of a community throughout the village.
After last nights unsuccessful trip to the airport’s viewing area I went again, but this time about an hour or so earlier. It was open and was a lot bigger than I remember it being. I saw Concorde and numerous other aircraft on display. There were more people there than I expected but very few planes were taking off and landing. Maybe only half a dozen in the hour or so I spent there. Tonight’s sunset wasn’t quite as magical as last nights, and I could have done with a longer lens to get closer to the planes but I thought I would share this image with you.
This afternoon I visited Bramall Hall, in Bramhall, Stockport. It is a wonderful example of a ‘Cheshire Black and White’ timber framed manor house, with origins dating back to Medieval England. The weather was wonderful as you can see from the photograph below. I am very happy with the hundred or so images that I captured today; including many interesting close ups of flowers.
I spent the day in Northampton visiting family. It was an early start and a long drive. We just went down for the day and came back up north early evening. It was really nice as we got into the town centre early so I went into the centre and took a few quick photos, the weather wasn’t as nice as it has been over the past few days but it was still interesting. I love the architecture of All Saints Church in the image below.
