Clambouring around St Philip's Tower

 Colin Brooks and Jess from Skyline were back on St Philip's tower today doing some more surveying. We're going to have more masonry repairs done, this time it is the tower that will get the attention. We're likely to have scaffolding erected in the summer. English Heritage have given us another generous grant which we'll supplement with a bit of fundraising of our own.

Whilst up on the roof I snapped this shot of work happening to Arthur Millwood Court, which is just the other side of Chapel St on Islington Estate.

Dusk on a a lovely Wintry day

It was such a lovely day today. We went for a wander around Styal whilst waiting for Abby's delayed flight. Beautiful sky. The photos would have been good for the recent exhibition on the theme of trees! There are a few more photos on Facebook at:

It was a beautiful day today. A little cold but I love bright sunny wintry days.
