It was a gorgeous day so we set off with a vague idea to get some brunch (we're still on holiday) and take another look at Nothing Happens, Twice at Harris Art Gallery. After a small amount of tweeting around someone told us they would supply brunch so we dropped in to Ravenous on Cannon Street which was a great success then to the gallery then for a stroll around Avenham Park which is only a couple of minutes from the train station and main shopping area, but feels like another place.
Couldn't see a thing when I took these, so I'm happy with the way they turned out! the building in the background used to be a hotel but is now a local authority building.
The park leads to the river, which is great for a walk and it forms part of the 21 mile route of the Guild Wheel.
We crossed the river via a footbridge that looked very much as though it was an old train/tram line then crossed back further down back through another area of the park and past some beautiful buildings, sad to see some of them were empty or underutilised as they were clearly once very grand.
It turns out there's a whole area of gorgeousness just a stride from the centre of the town.
