Days Out

The Bolton Camera Club meets weekly throughout most of the year and gives a very warm welcome to visitors and new members. We have been sharing a passion for photography since 1884 and are more than happy to share with you, whether your interest is in film or digital, audio visual or more technical aspects of photography. 

Members of this camera club and their spouses set off on Friday 17th August 2012 for a weekend away to Lincoln. We met up in our first stop at Bakewell for a coffee break, and set off for Chesterfield to see the cathedral with a twisted spire, and for some lunch. After lunch we travelled to Southwell to see the surprisingly large cathedral there, and arrived in Lincoln at around 5.30pm.

A local member of the Lincoln Camera Club joined us for dinner, and he had prepared a file of places to visit for good camera views in Lincoln and things to do in surrounding areas.

On Saturday many of us went to a Steam Rally in the show ground in glorious sunshine, where we saw a huge array of steam engines, steam cars and even some classic cars and motorbikes. The Red Arrows put on a show for us as they were training and practising their displays overhead. Saturday afternoon was spent sight seeing in Lincoln town centre, enjoying the Castle, Bishop’s Palace and the Cathedral.

Over dinner we presented Gordon and Pat Harley with flowers and gifts to show our appreciation for organising the weekend.

Sunday was again a scorching hot day and several of us went to the nearby Woodside Wildlife and Falconry Park where we saw a display of various birds of prey, and watched pigs racing round a track. We also explored the tropical garden and a bat cave. We then made our way home, seeing the first rain all weekend on the way.

We all thoroughly enjoyed the weekend of fun and laughter and the many photographic opportunities.
