    Default The History of Childwall (56k? haha)

    Well on the hottest day of the year so far, Jona decided to get some new tyres for his bike, don his sunglasses and with his new camera in tow, head up to Childwall Church and surrounding area's to take some zoomed shots of things I've never been able to see up close. The pictures on here are taken down in resolution and are still stunning but the ones I have on the PC are the original resolution and I am SO impressed!! (2816x2112 at 6mp)

    So, grab a beer, and let me take you on a walkthrough of my local area!

    Cheers all! It was worth it on a nice hot day - if I'd had a lock for my bike, i'd still be in the Abbey and there'd be no pics online
