    Donington Park. I've never been there, but the blue triangle in the foreground, the white wall behind it, the gantry and the woodland in the distance are all clearly visible on Google maps.

    I can't think of anything else I have to continue the thread - unless I'm allowed to go to our nearest neighbour on the continent - @ColinJ ?

  2. OK, I'll do one: not a road as such, but likely to be known by many on here

    Given where alot of these are, I was going to say part of the road down into Littleborough from the White House? - but I see it's already been bagged downthread (A58). I don't know that part of the whole too well, just when visiting the OHs relatives...

    I got it in one! It is looking SE from the Nick o' Pendle down to Sabden.

    The Google Street View car couldn't get quite the same view from the road but this picture is nearly identical ...

    @ColinJ I thought you'd know it, it is rather distinctive . I think was stood on the bank. Taken on the way home from the earlier pic of the cross.

    I only recognise the abandoned castle type building. Some where on the outskirts of Doncaster.

  15. Correct, it's at Hampole, on the 'Doncaster Road', which is a few 100yards before it crosses the A1 at 'Red House Junction' (1)

    The history is here, & reason for abandonment;

    The underwater road is not normally a Ford.................... (more of a River Aire inundation)
