Photographer's winning work celebrate's Chorley's history
8:00am Saturday 24th August 2013 in News
An amateur photographer has been named the winner in a competition to celebrate Chorley’s history.
John Cobham, from Coppull, won the competition which invited Chorley residents to submit pictures of their favourite places in the area.
The pictures were judged on behalf of sponsors Morris Homes by Chorley Photographic Society, who were impressed by the technical composition of John’s image of the path leading to the tower on top of Rivington Pike.
His winning picture will be displayed in the sales office of Morris’ Rivington View development on Eaves Lane, and he received £250 of vouchers for The Camera Centre in Chorley.
John said: “Rivington Pike is one of my favourite places in Chorley, and I was able to take a picture of it on a bright and sunny day. It’s great to be named winner and I’m looking forward to buying some new kit with my prize.
Chris Minshall, sales director for Morris Homes, said: “We wanted to celebrate everything that makes Chorley and its surrounding area special with our competition and we were impressed by the standard of entries.
“John’s picture stood out as it is a stunning picture of the tower on Rivington Pike which is just a short drive from our site and an important local landmark.”
