Walk with me...

I can’t find the original thread so here’s a new one for little walks in photos. Facts encouraged…

Ok, my walk around desolate bits of town

Figs in a car park in Ancoats

Gates to a kids charity, just painted by Billy and Tasha Whittle

The old Express building has got some new signage that replicates the old ones.

Old textile place that’s still full of mannequins and sewing machines even though it has no windows

Original sign from an old railway line that closed decades ago

Roadside feverfew

Never seen this before, like it a lot, probably connected to former railway too

This pillars supported a bridge over to the railway, but the top part has been removed

And there’s the old line before it ends in the middle of a housing estate

These are all lovely!

I walk around town a fair bit, but the only pictures I take are vaguely amusing shop signs or something I can use to make a silly, but obviously great, joke.

Must try harder.

I take about 40 photos a day, my google photos will probably be quite interesting in a few decades, certainly exhaustive for historians and all that. Access to that account is probably the only thing I have worth leaving to someone in my will.

The plan was for my tour to go there but it’s just a bit too far from the rest of the decay I have to show off (it’s near New Allen Street in Collyhurst btw - there’s a communal estate dog called Jasper who usually follows me for a bit, he’s a GBOD)

@andyvine Jasper…

I was walking on Saturday and saw this lot walking in a line. They’re always mooching about this field. GBOH.

One of them has an eye missing.
