SALE ARTS TRAIL 2016

SALE ARTS TRAIL 2016 9TH / 10TH JULY For the 3rd year running I’m delighted to be taking part in the excellent Sale Arts Trail.

STANLEY STREET 7.44AM

STANLEY STREET 7.44AM The temperature was only just above freezing. Instinct took me to the high ground above Redbank, where I could watch dawn advance across the edge of the city centre. A slither of flame red sky topped the far rooftops and, as if a hundred Popes were being chosen, puffs of white steam rose into the blueing clouds from much needed heating units.
