    I hand washed my Sealskinz this afternoon and popped them on a couple of kebab skewers to drip dry in the garden. (and bring them in before they froze solid!)

  7. A few photos

    Whilst in Rothwell today (south of Leeds, not the Northamptonshire one)
    One of the two Vetinary practices, that are less than 200yards apart
    The upstairs stained-glass is superb!!

    Then, on the journey back home, via the village I grew up in, & lived around, till I was 38
    The 'Clog & Rhubarb', as it was known, due to the largest (non-mining) reasons for employment in the village


    The old Toll-House, on the Wakefield - Aberford turnpike road (now the A642), with junction 30/M62 about a mile, or so, over my right shoulder)
    Actually one of two toll-houses in the village (other one is lone-gone), this is straight opposite 'the Clog', I stood by the sandwich board, outside Gordons Tyres to take the picture

    Today I didn't and so the first few shots were taken at ISO 800. A pity since those shots were probably the best I got all day. On some modern SLR's that wouldn't be much of a problem but I'm afraid on my old camera it is. Still, I wanted to get at least one of the high ISO shots in the can and used Photoshop to make it more atmospheric..

    On the way in, riding up Park Road (after passing jct 32.M62)

    An odd street name (actually a ginnel, about 5 yards long)
    Pontefract. Duck & Green Pease Row.jpg

    Two celebratory items of street furniture, for the Magna Carta

    The Baron involved, in the Council of Barons, on Pontefracts behalf; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_de_Lacy,_2nd_Earl_of_Lincoln

    Now sadly neglected, & run-down. what is quite possibly the oldest building in Pontefract (discounting the Castle, & secular buildings)
    Supposedly dating back to the mid 1400's
    Admittedly, this image is from 2013, but the dereliction has got worse, I had wanted to photograph it this morning, but there were people sitting on the wall
