Why are the trees all leaning over, have they been planted on an angle?
When I was a child this area was grassland, grass that came and went with the seasons as the good Lord intended.
I wonder how long it would take to revert back to that if it was left to it's own devices.
No doubt some people would prefer it as it is now, but wild, untamed areas have their own kind of beauty as well.
Only a few years ago Councils planted wild flower seeds on grassland like this, but that seems to have been stopped! It was lovely to see while it lasted!
The older part of St Elizabeth's churchyard, just along from here, was allowed to revert to moorland grass some years ago - coarse and sharp. Bolton Road was bounded by this type of grass when I was young.It looks decidedly pretty now.
My old mate "Jed" Holcroft lived just about where that redbrick house is. His father ran a haulage company from there.Jed was a science whizzkid and I think went to Imperial College or similar. Anyone know if he's around ?
