Photo Gallery: The Swans of Manchester
Just five miles from Manchester City Centre lies a little pocket of tranquillity called Chorlton Water Park.
Popular with couples of all ages, children, dog walkers and joggers; the one-mile, flat loop around the water is just about long enough to clear your mind – if it doesn’t, just go around again.
Northern Soul‘s Phil Pearson regularly loops-the-loop. He isn’t particularly a wildlife lover, and doesn’t own a camera, but he does like the swans. Here are some of his pictures taken on his iPhone over the past six months or so.
