  1. Taken yesterday morning in Taylor Park cyclists did a sponsored run with one group going to Southport and back with another to Whiston and back. This is the first event as part of the campaign in raising awareness of knife crime - with the aim of raising funds to get knife wands into bars in the town centre. Some pictures named...

  2. Yesterday i went up to Reginald Road in Sutton to where i once lived. I was brought up and lived in the middle block in the early 70's before we moved to Junction Lane,late 70's. Behind this tin fence was an industrial estate named 'Greenins' back then,with different units on there.As children we used to play around the carpark and talk to the security guy at the barrier. (2 guards/different shifts/one nice and one a * *************************************************************) On one of these pictures below i put my camera over the fence and got the Fountain. It was a working fountain back then and we as children sat around it just watching the water sprinkle out (that's when it was working) and about a foot deep and that was with rain.(I'm sure it was a 3 tier but the more you think of it the more you can't remember) Reginald Road,Sutton. by Robbob 2010, on Flickr Behind the tin fence by Robbob 2010, on Flickr Behind the tin fence the Old working fountain that we played around in the 70s by Robbob 2010, on Flickr Reginald Road,Sutton. by Robbob 2010, on Flickr Reginald Road,Sutton. by Robbob 2010, on Flickr Nextdoor is EMR..former 'Fragmentation' back then which is CLOSING tomorrow,Fri 15th Feb 2018. I went yesterday with Les from Atlas Salvage for a ride up to get these as he was weighing cars in,i nip on the yard nearly everyday to the lads for a chat and nosey.There's scrapyards from all over the place that go there plus other companies...i bet it was a goldmine. Again as kids we would go next door from the fountain to the Alsation/German Shepard at the yard gate.We knew that we'd only last under a minute at the gate as we could hear a chain scrape along the floor with a Wolf like dog running up to us with spiky hair and piercing eyes...i just hope it was sweat running down me legs running away I was told that the former Greenins industrial estate is becoming an housing estate...it's got to be. I really hope which i doubt it that the fountain is kept as it'll make a nice feature done-up. Also in time EMR will become an housing estate i guess but it's going to be soaked up with chemicals from all these years it's been there and i'm sure there was an article in the Star to do with that place a few years ago with Junction Stn.?

  3. Parkgate

    This is the only coastal resort in Cheshire. We went for a ride out looking for the coastal wildlife but nothing much there but we did see a Peregrine Falcon snatch a Starling that was on it's own but it was too quick for me. Parkgate is a beautiful and quiet corner of the Wirral,wit spectacular views across the River Dee Estuary to the Welsh hills. The spring high tides are always an impressive sight when the water comes right up to the Parade wall.However it can sometimes mean that there are road closures depending on the height of the tide. Along the 1.5 mile stretch of the Parkgate Parade on the Wirral...restaurants,pubs,25 bedroom hotel,clothes shop,ice-cream parlours,chip shop, seafood shop, general stores and much more. The reedbeds & marshes of the Dee Estuary stretch out on your right, and the Welsh hills provide a spectacular backdrop. On Spring tides,especially when aided by northerly winds, much of what seems dry land is covered. Birds & small mammals, driven inland by the encroaching water, provide easy picking for raptors such as the Marsh Harrier. Burton Point, just north of the Welsh border here, is a sandstone outcrop behind which there are some Iron Age earthworks.There are, however, some interesting erosion patterns on the outcrop itself, and even the modest height gain provides a wide panorama of the Dee Estuary, from Queensferry right up to the point of Ayr.

  12. Goshawk

    The Goshawk is one of the largest and rarely seen birds of prey in the UK and an excellent woodland hunter.It's an extremely fierce predator that can catch birds and mammals of twice its own bodyweight.When their eyes fix on prey there's no getting away...a 'Top Gun' of the woodlands. The Goshawk used to be widespread throughout Great Britain but became extinct in the late 19th century due to deforestation followed by relentless persecution. They were reintroduced from the 1960s onwards, not by any conservation organisation, but by falconers and hawk-keepers who brought birds into the country initially from Poland and Germany. For such a large bird they can be secretive and can remain in an area for some time without being detected.

    I remember it well @philthespark as i was brought up in the middle block on Reginald Rd before moving around the corner to Junction Lane. I didn't go further than the fountain for these pictures in 2013 that we played around as kids but...you have me thinking now to go back.
