Pottering in Poynton

Just along the road from the canal is the Anson Engine Museum housed on an old colliery site. There were a lot of coal pits around here. The engine museum has all kinds of engines large and small, steam, gas, diesel. I don't pretend to know much about them, here are the photos Ian took.

I do know this one was taken for the tilley lamp FL6 at the back!

Whilst we were waiting for 'the engine man' to do things to the injector thingummys we went for a walk in the lovely sunshine, there are lots of field paths, an old railway line, the Middlewood Way as well as the towpath to enjoy.

The Cheshire Plain
Dry stone wall repairs

The long wall, part of the Lyme Park estate, it is quite tall, to keep the deer in.
Great little shepherds hut.
We got a new chimney here at the Trading Post, Lord Vernon's Wharf, to replace the one lost in the canal some time ago.
The 'new to us' button fender in place.
The old squished one it has replaced.
