Fantastic! well done


Comment by alan on 28th November 2011 at 03:36
The last time I was in Scholes it didn't have big tall buildings like that......only row houses with two up and two down. I don't remember much sun either.

Lovely photograph Dave is that St Patrick's church in the top left hand corner.?


Comment by Dave (Oy) on 28th November 2011 at 19:14
Thanks :)

Yes I think that's St Patrick's.


Comment by Ken R on 28th November 2011 at 21:22
Good shot, could you explain where this was taken from please.


Comment by Scholes Malc on 28th November 2011 at 22:25

and Ken R I would say its been taken from the Grand Arcade


Comment by Dave (Oy) on 28th November 2011 at 22:35
Ken - it was taken from the top of the car park on Millgate.


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 28th November 2011 at 22:53
What a stunning picture.
Are these awful skyrise flats still occupied?


Comment by honk2 on 28th November 2011 at 22:56
Nice one Dave, love the colours especially the sky. Looking east you must have been on the car park over Debenhams, or somewhere in that area?


Comment by Rev David Long on 29th November 2011 at 08:21
Yes, Jean F, the flats are still occupied. They have just had a refurbishment, which included the new white cladding. This has improved insulation, so they are warmer than before. The interiors have also had a face-lift, and the surrounds have been greatly improved, with secure, gated parking. From the visits I make there, people are happy living there.

Nice shot. I don't remember them looking this good when I left 30 years ago. Amazing how geat light can make a shot(and of course the skill of the photographer.
