'Old Church' Sports Field

Allsprings Drive

 

South toward Brantfell Road September 2002 and June 2004.
Row of horse chestnut trees showing early autumnal colours
Unfortunately the vibrant colours were not just caused by the arrival of autumn.
All the trees alongside the sports field have been removed

From the field July 2001 and June 2004.
From the middle of the field, one dead conker tree in the row of trees
All the trees removed does allow for a great view out to Pendle Hill but ...

May 2003 and the first fatality. First of many.

There's a clear view of the War Memorial after the trees on Church Lane have been felled
The Memorial is clearer without as many trees, you can see the banking of the leveled area too.

April 2001 and June 2004 from the corner of Brantfell Road.
Footbal match from the corner of Brantfell Road, the War Memorial jus visible through the leafless horse chestnut trees
From the corner of Brantfell Road there is now an uninterupted view of the War Memorial
