Wrexham through fresh eyes

I remember the first time I set foot into Wrexham over seven years ago I was like “Yay, civilization, they’ve got Aldi!”

Now you have to understand that I spent my first weeks in North Wales in Llangollen – which is a lovely place, don’t get me wrong – but not necessarily so if you stay in a self-catering accommodation and don’t have a car.

Anyway. I’ve got this thing at the moment about photography and architecture, and if it is possible, if you look closely enough or from a different angle, to discover new shapes and patterns in buildings and structures. It works really well in Liverpool where I started this little project and I thought it might be time to try this in Wrexham too. So I set out last weekend, trying to avoid (not always succesfully) the typical “touristy places” and – well, I struggled a bit… It’s definitely work in progress but you can spot some beautiful, interesting, weird and funny things. Come on, let’s go for a stroll around town.

As I mentioned before, it’s work in progress. And, yes, there are some really nice places in Wrexham too which I’m going to show you another time.

Here’s another thing. On my way back I made a detour via the Industrial Estate and what can I say. Discoveries of a very different kind…
