Skywatch Friday: Brabyns Park, Marple

More than 300 blogs regularly contribute to Skywatch Friday.

My contribution this week was taken on Tuesday afternoon.

It had been raining heavily for a few days, as the puddles in the ground attest , but on Tuesday, as the shadows attest, the sun came out strongly.

This photograph was taken on a delightfully warm walk from Marple to Compstall through Brabyns Park.

Brabyns Park in Marple was formerly a private estate with a hall but it has been owned by Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council since 1947. More information on the Stockport MBC website.

Since then the weather has turned and as I type this just before 7pm on Thursday, cold winds are blowing and rain is bucketing down again.

Typical spring weather really!
