Took a break from concerts to wander around Northampton’s wooded area. I have visited both places years back, but the photos were subpar. This time I decided to visit in hopes of capturing better photographs and quality. Both areas I know little about such as the history, use, or when they went out of commission. I’ve searched and searched, but couldn’t find any information. The last resort would be county records or local residents. For now, I rather explore and photograph the grounds without knowing. The first spot is along the Lehigh River, only a mile if that, by the bridge leading into Coplay, PA. Going to the area is easy and even though I took shots from the train tracks, I am kind of suspicious of crossing it. I haven’t and I think I won’t.
The next spot is along the Nor Bath Trail, and unless it is Autumn, it is very hard to see from the trail. Not sure how to explain to get to the location, but I remember passing a wall. The property seems interesting in a sense that there is a story there. I heard it was part of the cement factory, but I have no hard evidence to prove that. The ground’s is littered with many cement landmarks you can walk on or in. A lot of local kids seem to have parties around the area here. Maybe I will find out what the true history of these places are, but for now I will leave it a mystery.
