Orchard, Pyramid and Sky


Looking from Hollywood Park over the Community Orchard towards Kings Reach and the "Pyramid".

The Community Orchard is one of 12 in Stockport - see Stockport.gov.uk for more details - established around 2011. I was told by a passing dog-walker that it was originally a bowling green. Aerial views would seem to indicate that it was once a football pitch. It looks rather neglected but that may be just the time of year.

For more information about the pyramid see my post from 1st April 2013.

You can view all 20 photographs from my recent walk through Hollywood Park as a Geotrip plotted on a map and available as a slide-show.

A contribution to Skywatch Friday.

  1. There's a building here that incorporates pyramids and cones into its design. I'm reminded of that.

  4. I am sure that through the years this grassy lawn has been used for many purposes. You mention a few of them. Fine photo with that dramatic winter sky.

  6. The sky is so emotional. It feels like Zeus is going to punish humans.
