Watching nature take its course, from the top of a hill in northern England

In the current economic climate a property sale is good enough reason to hang the bunting out, the real reason was the Bollington Festival. The view, a terraced street in Bollington.

I’ve got so out of sync with my blog posting, I’ve been a bit distracted, here’s a quick fire post of the streets of the Village of Bollington in Cheshire, it might make more sense if you start here.

Like Wirksworth, it’s easy to get roof top views of Bolllington, because of the steep sided valley it sits in.

Spick and span back yards.

But if you are by now humming the theme tune to Coronation Street,* in an ‘it’s grim up north’ sort of way, you’d be a bit off target, other Bollington views include, the path up to the

Middlewood Way

The river Bollin, that snakes through the town,

The flowers  by the recreation ground.

*That music is as much part of my childhood as meat and potato pie, with a suet crust, although I don’t think we watched the programme much, it was just there, a reflection of what life was like when we only two or three TV channels to choose from.

Watching the rhythm of rural life, from the top of a hill in northern England. Having spent most of my life avoiding writing, I now need to do it! I am no domestic goddess, but if I were expecting visitors to my home, I would whisk round with the duster and plump up the cushions and generally make the place look presentable. I hope that by putting my words where others may see them it will encourage me to ‘tidy up and push the Hoover around’ my writing. On the other hand I may just be adding to the compost heap. Only time will tell! Pull up a chair, sit yourself down, I’ll put the kettle on.

  1. Oh my. I used to watch Coronation Street (on CBC–it was nice living across the river from Ontario). I loved your ferrets post, too. So a couple of nice memories this morning. Thanks.

    Those chimneys are wonderful.

  2. How beautiful. I miss England so much. Thanks for the beautiful pictures…E.Rhiannon

  3. Wonderful photos! xx

  4. Beautiful photos there, thank you for posting them.

    I especially love the ones of Middlewood Way and the River Bollin. I had the pleasure of providing medical cover for a cycle ride the other week through the Yorkshire Dales that went through numerous little villages. I am very sad to say though that I completely forgot to take my camera!
