My Walk this Week – A Day in Northampton

My walk this week is from a day trip we had to Northampton a few weeks ago. We were there for the opening of an exhibition in which my daughter (Hannah Duncan Creations) had be invited to take part – Enamel Today by the British Society of Enamellers. The exhibition is at 78 Derngate, the only Charles Rennie Mackintosh house in England.

Beckets Park

Apart from the obvious interest I have in my daughter’s work I also had an interest in the Northampton architecture, and not just the Rennie mackintosh house. The building opposite 78 Derngate was a great piece of Art Deco architecture and a new footbridge across the canal in Beckets Park showed another example of what seems to be a current trend in design for twisting bridges.

The bridge was not open when we were there but I liked its rusty metal construction and enjoyed taking photos of the colours, textures and patterns to be found on the surfaces.
