Springtime at New Islington Marina / Cotton Field Wharf

Lockdown day 565767, and another bank holiday, so out for an early walk to meet some of the new residents (and some of their canal neighbours).

Early morning stroll around New Islington & Ancoats

As we enter a different world for an unknown period of time, its still important to get some fresh air and a little bit of exercise. This morning I took a short stroll around New Islington and Ancoats in Manchester. Its early on a Sunday morning so would normally be quiet but some of this pictures include the Manchester Inner Ring Road (Great Ancoats Street) and 8:30am.

Photos taken using my phone camera.

River Wharfe & The Bolton Abbey Estate

A collection of photos from a few days staying at and exploring around the Bolton Abbey Estate in North Yorkshire.

Bolton Abbey takes its name from the ruins of the 12th-century Augustinian monastery now known as Bolton Priory. The priory, closed in the 1539 Dissolution of the Monasteries ordered by King Henry VIII.

The 33,000 acre (134 km2) estate contains six areas designated as Sites of Special Scientific Interest, including Strid Wood, an ancient woodland (mainly oak), which contains the length of the River Wharfe known as The Strid, and a marine fossil quarry.
