Chelford Steam fair 2014 weather was wonderful for a proper Steam Engine show (photographers dream) complete with a range of steam powered agricultural equipment, log splitters and steam powered machine of every kind including steam powered fair ground rides.

The fair is the perfect chance to photograph some of the stunning vehicles lovingly preserved.

I love how the fair is now a long established family affair with all generations joining in the fun, long may it continue.

 

Old Fence Post

Some people say that it rains a lot in Lancashire but I promise you that the sun does come out, and when it does my infrared camera is dug out.

Rambling around Gisburn (Lancashire) looking for cool interesting trees and found this nice one with a gnarled old fence post. Hopefully some good weather to come this summer so I can take my camera out a bit more.

 

The Old Barn at Birtle

Birtle-barn-062

Some have described this Birtle barn (also can appear as Bircle on old maps)  as was the “Old Hanging Barn” the place where local criminals were hung on a Silver birch. I do not know how true this was  but all is quiet now. This barn is one of many nice old cottages in the village of Birtle which nestles between Bury and Heywood in Lancashire and is one of my favourite places to photograph.

Affetside is a small village on the outskirts of Bury and is situated on the old Roman Road that connected Manchester to Ribchester in Lancashire. In the village you can find the Roman Affetside Cross that is believed to have been a moorland marker for pilgrims travelling to Whalley Abbey.
