Photo is a light installation near post Z, already shiny even though it was daytime. Wonder how many of our parks have Christmas light shows going on ?
Autumn colours time, and controls emerging from the undergrowth as it dies back. Pictures this week from Chesham Woods and Chorlton Water Park.
We’ve been obliged to update the processing around PayPal payments. We’ve tested the update and it seems to work fine, but if anything goes wrong for you, please let us know !!
There’s a long line of paired posts at Debdale that look as if they might have been supports for small trees – but there aren’t any!
Apart from the question of what are they for, there’s a tricky question of whether they should be mapped and if so, how ?
The unique Little Cowshed at Brereton Heath is not exactly little any more !
Sadly, the cafe seems to have shut up for the winter. More sadly, it looks like quite a few of the ash trees are suffering – photo shows a couple near the memorial statue, but there’s quite a few really big ones along the bottom road looking pretty dead.
The long awaited map update and course changes at Haigh Hall and Woodland Park is now live. Get yourself new maps and enjoy some of our finest orienteering. Picture shows the lion guarding the visitor facilities.
Today we came across a group enjoying the challenge of orienteering on 18-year-old maps ! It is just possible that this won’t provide the best introduction to local orienteering.
Picture shows two parks for the price of one – Chesham Woods lake in the foreground, Heaton Park tower in the distance.
Fences at Mirrlees Fields now line the two main footpaths as an attempt to curtail access to the full area. They’re shown on the updated map. Rumours suggests the area is for sale, and that planning permission has been denied. As you can see in the photo, the fences are hip-height and not barbed-wire so are more indicative than enforcing.
Wythenshawe is not the only one of our parks with increasing areas for memorial trees. However, at Wythenshawe post Q is now inside the extended enclosure.
