The weather was the total opposite, raining, cloudy and miserable which made photography a difficult task but hey hoe on we go... After a treck through an urban jungle of sorts we hit the cameras (its been a week of cameras ) erm what to do ??

HMS Bronington (M1115)

HMS Bronington is a Ton-class minesweeper of the Royal Navy, launched on 19 March 1953. This mahogany-hulled minesweeper is one of the last of the "wooden walls" (wooden-hulled naval vessels).

After being decommissioned from service, the ship was purchased in January 1989 by the Bronington Trust, a registered charity, whose patronCharles, Prince of Wales commanded this vessel in 1976.

For some time, the ship was berthed in the historic Manchester Ship Canal at Trafford Park, Greater Manchester, England. In 2002, she became part of the collection of the Warship Preservation Trust.

Great stuff and a huge shock to see some none HDR images from you hehe

Thank you for the normal shots of this place because I never did mushrooms in my youth or acid come to think of it which is probably why I'm not always keen on some HDR :D
