First went to the "Bury Art Museum & Sculpture Centre" to see what they had on. Found it a bit strange, how about a crushed Cessna , full size, that had been uncrushed. Is that art or sculpture?
and some strange stuff up stairs in the art galley.
Started my walk going down Manchester Road passed the town hall.
and then off to the right at the Italian Restaurant.
Down passed the Rose and Crown to the lane that gets you to the side of Church Central School.
Then down the steps to the path by the Metro line.
Not pretty but it keeps you away from the traffic.
Through the tunnel is were I sometimes go to fish the Irwell.
and the Monkey Bridge, why its called that I do not know but that is what we have always called it.
Mind you the canal is more weed than water, shame.
The sailing club in the distance.
and then followed the road.
and on to a very wet road.
Where I went right towards Ainsworth.
very much up hill until I got to Ainsworth Village
Left at the top of the road and passed the White Horse
and the road to the Duke William
what I have always called the Dutch House, there is nothing else like it in the area.
the hill behind the white house is a tip and a quarry, the hill keeps getting higher every month.
Not a pretty walk and not a lot to see, but it got me out of the house and some fresh air in my lungs.
I am sure you will have noticed that the photos from Ainsworth Village to Harwood are taken on a different day than the others. I had to go to the library in Ainsworth today, the walk there was fine as was the weather. The walk back was mostly in hail and sleet and I got very wet.
