Billinge Green Flashes are such wonderful wide open spaces to observe the water-birds, misty mornings and the evening sunsets. The only thing to spoil the peace and tranquillity here were the planes continually rumbling overhead! We did however have a mighty downpour of rain while I was out on my wanderings, luckily I was able to shelter under the old railway bridge. Dave and Ange had arrived on nb Iona, so we were able to have a longer chat.
Then we were off past the busy Brunner Mond/ICI factory (according to our Pearson's guide). Opposite this newer part stood some more dilapidated buildings, but they all seemed to be in use. Just look at that fantastic sky making everything look so clear and bright.
There were a couple of unusual boats at Wincham Wharf as we squeezed our way through.
