Summer 2016 Part 1

I’m doing this in two parts because I have rather a lot of photos I’ve picked out to upload. Over a hundred, and I don’t want to put that many in one post. It is not just a shameless attempt to increase the number of posts on this blog – I grant I’m not above that, but on this occasion I really just feel it’s too much for one post.

But I’m doing both posts today, because I count summer as June to August, and then I like to get these posts done by the end of the following month, and that ends today. I’m just in under the line I set myself.

So I’d better get going.

To begin with, a wander around Grass Wood, near Grassington. This was the site of an iron age settlement and a fort. I went to the part where the fort was, but not the settlement. It wasn’t a serious exploration, just a wander.

And on to Avenham Park in Preston, where I found myself long enough to snap a few photos.

Went to look at the Ringing Singing Tree in Burnley, a sculpture built as part of the East Lancashire panopticons project. It wasn’t really singing that much when I went, but it was making a bit of a noise. It’s a cool sculpture to look at though, I like the design a lot, so I wasn’t bothered by that. I’m not much of an art critic, am I? I just felt I should give a bit of a commentary on it.

And some photos taken walking about above Kettlewell:

And that’s it for part one. Part two could be up very soon or in a few hours, but unless something specific happens to prevent it, it will be up by the end of the day.
