Lancashire - from the air July 2013 - 07/28/2013

I'm not sure what is Lancashire is anymore - or rather what is not Lancashire, Bolton used to be Lancashire but now its Greater Manchester and has been for many years. So before anyone shouts "that's not Lancashire" please bare in mind a lot of people who live in Greater Manchester quote their address as Lancashire. On with some pictures from the plane (mostly taken July 2013 - a few are older shots). First off a mill, Lancashire is full of mills, a lot have fallen into disrepair over the years, many demolished and a good few converted to apartments. This first one is Lion Mill, Royton, Oldham - it featured in the TV drama series Life on Mars.   Grape Mill, Royton, Oldham Whilst we are over Oldham, Oldham Athletic Football Club and another mill, Manor Mill, Oldham - the Oldham area used to have over 70 mills Rochdale, another Lancashire cotton mill town, with its gas towers and ugly concrete housing On the moors above the mill town of Darwen sits Darwen Tower or as its also known Jubilee Tower - built in 1898 to commemorate Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee. Thankfully its not all bleak industrial landscapes in Lancashire, plenty of greenery to see.   Lever Castle, a folly of Lord Leverhulme, Rivington, near Chorley   Moving towards Preston we have the wonderful Brockholes Nature Reserve (the nature reserve uses a few of my shots on its promotional literature). Preston North End Football Club   And so we come to Blackpool, once the play area for the worker...
