Setting off at 7pm yesterday, with no particular destination in mind, I found myself in Congleton and headed up towards Swettenham. There was no traffic, the late evening sun was shining, and it just seemed a good idea to take some pictures along the way.
These farm machines seemed almost like a group of tired beasts of burden having a rest after the day’s work.
Another mile and another stop and a shift from the mechanical to the botanical:
Approaching the crossing of the River Dane near Holmes Chapel one comes to this magnificent railway viaduct taking the main line to the North and Scotland.
It struck me that this could almost have been a Roman Aquaduct built two thousand years earlier. The only thing a Roman architect who travelled forward in time might wonder about are the added-on electric pylons!
