Communal Global ~ ATW Tuesday







 

Today, let me take you on a little tour of one of our local towns.

This is Crewerailway town, and a place best known as a large railway junction and home to Crewe Works, which was for many years a major railway engineering facility for manufacturing and overhauling of trainsbut is now very much reduced in size. From 1946 until 2002 it was also the home of Rolls-Royce motor car production. The Pyms Lane factory, on the west of the town, now produces Bentley motor cars exclusively.

These are pictures I took on-commission for my brother-in-law, who has set up his own 'urban renewal' business (Urban Flow), with a partner - and they needed some fresh images for their website and publications. What a privilege!

 This is some of one set that I took.

I hope you've enjoyed a little taste of English town-life.

Now join in and show us a little bit or your corner of the world today ~ over at CommunalGlobal.
