The wife on short notice like an hour ago has been asked to go on a course at Manchester University Didsbury campus, the person booked on the course has taken ill.

The problem I've been voulenteered to drive around 25 miles each way, I'm wondering if anyone knows any photo locations that I can while a few hours away, and save some mileage?

It's not an area I know and my friend google has let me down (or more likely I asked the wrong questions)

Styal Mill & park isn't far away on the way to Wilmslow.
Didsbury village itself is quite interesting for street photography.
(Very pretentious inhabitants there!)

Hi KevSB, I've been to Tatton park not thought of it though, mansion is National trust and I think the grounds are council owned, my be wrong so don't quote me, will bear it in mind.

Hi aidrian_w, styal mill is also National trust was there just before christmas, Didsbury village sounds interesting can imagine it full of students, I'll fire up google and have a look.

Thanks chaps for the ideas, appreciated.

Hi David, Didsbury to Salford Quays may as well drive home, I can remember Salford docks now quays working as docks, ships coming down the Manchester ship canal, go there often I'm now feeling very old.

Thanks for the idea.

There is another NT property at Dunham Park. It is a deer park and contains Dunham Massey Hall. It is just SW of Altrincham.
