I have added an album with six brand new photos to my Flickr portfolio and given it the appropriate title of 'Woman with a Leather Coat.'
The photos were taken in Grange Park, Preston. Not far from where I lived as a child.
The first thing that struck me when I was taken to the park as a child were the imposing remains of an ancient manor house.

I was a little dare devil. Oh how I would have loved to have climbed on those broken walls, but mum never allowed it, saying it was too dangerous and dragging me away to the playground sandpit with a bucket and spade.
Visiting the park again almost fifty years later, my childhood memories were stripped away. The park has been totally transformed yet still attractive, enough to earn a Green Flag award. This means that Grange Park is now a well maintained and safe place to hang out.
This photo shows me finally getting my chance to safely sit on the balustrade of the old manor house.
We got a few more shots in before the sun went down. To view all the pics of me in my leathers visit my Flickr album here
