While many lament the warm weather leaving us and the days getting shorter, there is undeniably an innate beauty that descends on Manchester during Autumn.

If you have any photos for us do share (we don't bite - promise) the below were lovingly snapped by Rich Crisp.

Cheetham Park, Stalybridge

A Victorian park more commonly known as Elizabeth Street Park - Cheetham Park is situated in Stalybridge in North Manchester. Over recent years it has been somewhat neglected but this autumn afternoon certainly proved how beautiful it could be, even when lacking a little TLC.

The sunset from Hyde's Werneth Low Country Park

The country park extends for 200 acres across the Northern and Western slopes of Werneth Low. Only 9 miles from the city centre, the area is an outer haven providing panoramic views. The dark blue silhouette of the Welsh mountains can often be seen on clear days, as can the Pennine hills which are close by.
