Exploring where I live


“Hello” and “Thanks for visiting”

I like to wander around and take a look at the old things that most of us pass every day without giving them a second thought …. maybe look into their history and tell their story. These are all places that anyone can visit…..

“Go and see… Take pictures… Leave only footprints”

These pages contain just some of the random places I explore, near to where I live…. If you feel like visiting them yourself, I hope you have as much fun as I did …  🙂

If you enjoyed your visit here, please leave a positive comment, or a negative comment if you didn’t … Thanks for looking 🙂


4 new pages of walks along the coast added…

I’ve added 4 new pages of walks I did along the coast, from Blackpool, up towards Cumbria… there were some really interesting things I found along the way. You’ll find the links at the bottom of the “Places I’ve explored” menu… I hope you’ll have a look, or you can just click on the link below to find the menu for them.

All the best!


1940’s Wartime Weekend in Lytham, Lancs

Lytham Wartime Weekend 2016 167

OK, so today (13/08/2016) I went to Lytham in Lancashire to have a look at this annual event.

It’s a great weekend and one for your diaries. The event has been held on the Green at Lytham in Lancashire for the past few years and today was another great turnout.

It was great to see so many people there in 1940’s period dress and the vehicles and other exhibits were amazing. There was even a flyover from a Spitfire from the BBMF Flight which was absolutely awesome but sadly my stock Canon lens was unable to capture anything decent of it … “Note to self: Get a camera lens upgrade … soon! ” 😉

I can only thank the many people who were responsible for putting on such a great event and I will definitely be back next year …

So, here’s the link to my pictures from today:

New content added – Bull Nose, the entrance to Preston Docks

Bull Nose Preston Docks 023

Had a little wander round Preston Docks again today, but this time I ventured away from the main tourist area and walked across the swing bridge towards Bull Nose where the docks meet the River Ribble…. There’s a handy public footpath all the way round… It was a lovely place to visit and not busy at all.

Here’s a link to the page, or just click on the link on the menu:
