Hi Folks,

I've been trying to find some Poppy fields around Manchester/Cheshire/Derbyshire ways without success, just wondering if anyone has come across any and if so would be kind enough to share the location. Smile

Would be nice to get some shots before they disappear for a year. Sad

I know its no where near you......Sad But if you fancy a trip to " East Anglia " ie: Norfolk & Suffolk " We is inundated with Poppy fields......Grin

You could tie that in with a trip to snap some shots of the vanishing Happisburgh beach ruins, Before they are lost forever....Sad

Question, Is it worth £60 to 70 quids worth of fuel.....Wink

Thanks guys, appreaciate you posting.

I'll take a look at that Dave, doesn't look too far from where I live and lookforward to seeing your shots from there.

Thanks Vince, I will at some point make a trip down to East Anglia, but I think the Poppy's may have gone by then, perhaps next summer. Grin
