A Walk Around Longton Brickcroft
Yesterday it snowed, at least it did in the morning, perhaps not so much as elsewhere but there was snow. So when it eased off a quick trip ten miles up the road to Longton Brickcroft resulted in a selection of images with a snow theme. The pond had frozen over earlier in the week so the snow provided a nice finish to the surface, with the sun setting in the west giving a finishing touch.Longton Brickcroft is on the site of the former Bentley Brickworks in Longton, Lancashire. Clay was excavated at the site to make bricks but when good quality clay ran out in the early 1960s brick making ceased and the site became derelict. During the 1980s the Nature Reserve was created with a small visitor centre, attracting a number of visitors throughout the year.A slideshow of pictures from the walk may be found on my Flickr site, together wit a few from two days ago before the sow fell.
