Accrington 2012

25 Nov

At the bottom of this post is a video with a collection of stills, all taken in Accrington this year.

Goes to show just what there is in your home town that you take for granted sometimes.

Information on  the stills would have been handy though. There are a couple on there even I am not sure of.

Note – not much Accrington brick to show. Mainly stone.

One of the focal points featured is Accrington Viaduct. I think it’s  a brilliant piece of architecture.  It looks magnificent when entering the town centre from various locations. Grade 2 listed, it was completed in 1848.
