Bolton from the air, again - July 2013

Time to catch up with more aerial shots from around Bolton, following the last selection from January

Once again all pictures taken by myself, this time early July 2013 on a couple of trips out to other places.

This first picture ended up in our local newspaper, big mistake on my part with a lack of the story printed and parts of the article simply made up and the promises of a mention of the pilots charity webpage simply broken.

Bottom line, Saturday afternoon in Bolton Town Centre and the place is dead.

Bolton Town Hall

This next shot of Bolton, again showing Bolton Town Hall and was taken the weekend after, its a Sunday shot.

 Bolton Town Hall

Newport Street, Bolton, showing the Bolton Gateway Bridge in all its "glory" - on the bottom right hand side is the proposed area for the new Bolton transport hub or as some would call it a bus station or possibly escape.

The A666. St Peters Way, going under Bradford Street, you can see Shifnal Street in this shot, strangely if you use the words Shifnal Street, Bolton on any blog or photo it gets extra views due to Shifnal Street historically being the red light district of Bolton - this is pretty much not the case these days as the local police have cleaned up the area.

 Arrrrrrr, the Jumbles Reservoir, when I was a school lad they used to make run round this in the snow, ice and Lancashire's torrential rain as part of a torture regime codenamed cross country - bastards !!

Over to Harwood, bordering Breightmet, off Stitch Mi Lane is the new school St Catherine's Academy which replaced the now demolished Withins School or as previously known County Grammar School.
