Bolton from the air, again ! - January 2013

More of  my home town, possibly not of interest for a lot of people, but for the people of Bolton jolly interesting????

Thankfully the town looks rather nice from the plane even on a cold damp Lancashire winters day, a bit of an idle potter around our home town with the aim of snapping some pictures of a few friends houses whilst on our travels to Ince Airfield from Derbyshire.

These are in no particular order, so starting off with Bolton School.

Shortly after we got these pictures heavy snow showers moved in, summer can't come soon enough.
