Well, there may still be one or two bits of tidying up to do, but apart from some gated developments all the streets of Bowdon have now been photographed at least once.
If you live on one of the gated developments, please get in touch!
It's now August (2021) and I'll be out and about photographing all the streets of Bowdon again when summer starts to fade and the autumn colours begin to emerge, so keep your eyes peeled.
