The Grain Road is an amazing scenic road that connects Haslingden to Blackburn in Lancashire. In summer months you feel you are on top of the world passing high over the moorland but in winter there is often low cloud. This picture was taken in low cloud conditions it had the benefit of filtering out the harsh sun to create a warm golden light.

The Ancoats Guardian




Ancoats is a district of old Manchester that was once the weaving heart of the city, it was home to the immigrant Irish and Italian catholic’s who took Manchester into their heart and their communities flourished.

Today  things are a little different, regeneration has taken over these now abandoned industrial mills and turned them into housing for the new generation of Mancunians.
