Photo-a-Day (Saturday, 13th April, 2019)
Kirkless hall pound
Great photo Ron, looks like spring has sprung for you, nice Willows.
I like your photo Ron, and in particular, for want of better words, its charming chunkiness. Now let's hope those sagging boughs hold-to.
The shrubs, flowers and white paint work all done by volunteers.
it's another early morning scene.....
There's a different atmosphere that clings on in the early hours - so it seems.
That's lovely..so peaceful...thank you Ron.
That's right, Veronica: the cusp of daytime's joy.
I forgot to say every time I peddle up past top lock (be up there this afternoon) I cant help but notice that red brick building sticking out like a sore thumb
Did Mick bump his head when he fell off his bike yesterday? I detect a certain charm offensive going on!
Nice reflections Ron and an intriguing rufous headed duck chugging by. A Pochard perhaps?
Thanks, Ron, that’s a cracking shot :o)
Mick, the red brick building was originally an office used by the toll keeper who kept a record of all the boats that passed and what they carried. There’s a similar office at Henhurst Bridge for boats working to and from the Leigh Branch:
That's quite a site Joanne.
I know what they are for Joanne but they still stick out, maybe they could be done in stone cladding like the Duckworths in coronation did with there house
The painters sometimes say " Put a bit of red alongside your greens".
I particularly like Joanne's use of Toll keeper.
