Herrington Country Park ~ March 2018 ~ Part 2

  Part 1 Here We left the lake behind and went off to walk around the park. It had been raining quite a lot in previous days so the ground was a bit soggy, but the paths not too bad.  There are seating bits all around the park which are decorated with scenes supposedly celebrating the heritage of the area. The first, I presume, is to do with Sunderlands ship-building industry. They made some great paper boats. 😉 This next one I’m not too sure about, sunbathing I think is not part of Sunderlands cultural heritage, nor indeed is any sunshine…

Day 351~366

Popped up to Penshaw’s Monument this evening, as I’d read they have a new cost efficient LED lighting system for it.  It used to be lit up with static yellow lamps, but now the colours move around the monument, tried to get them all in but even on a long exposure I missed getting the green in!

Day 323~366

Today was a beautiful blue sky day, though very cold, and on my way back from Sunderland up the A19 I glimpsed Penshaw’s monument and thought that would look pretty cool in the ball, so took a diversion down the A183 and voila! Here it is.  Was pleased no-one else was up there as it’s a popular place for people of youthfulness who don’t have heart attacks going up that hill, which I probably would. Have been up there a few years ago and it damned near killed me then! I’ve posted some more film shots up on the Fragglefilm…
