@briantrumpet is only a short person
I set 'em up, you knock 'em down.
A piccolo trumpet.
This morning, whilst out, I had a look at the new swing-bridge that's in the process of installation over the Aire & Calder Navigation Canal
It's from Water Lane, to Calder Row. the row of (ex) Canal company terraces on the other side
The predecessor was a vehicular bridge, but has been chained in the 'Canal Open' status for quite a few years
I am given to understand there was a legal battle over the vehicular rights over part of Water Lane, as someone claimed ownership
(besides, it wasn't in great condition prior to removal)
The Geograph link shows the previous bridge, & footbridge, which I have used many times, on my XC run to work (pre 'Eastern Relief Road' & forthcoming new housing estate, closing a couple of paths/tracks)
It also has a location map, below the picture
From the poster, it looks like the bridge will be locked in the 'Canal Closed', as the need for a key is stated
Presumably the key will not be removable, unless the bridge is returned to 'Canal Closed' status?
And, looking down the Canal, towards the road bridge, & the Marina
This is the footbridge that will be closed, when it opens
My Roubaix hit its first thousand miles this morning so we had a bit of a party this evening
Ok, the wife's on holiday and I got a little bored
Day with the kids yesterday no cycling so decided on a walk round Sprotborough Falls
Is Trouts still going?
Yup - very much so.
Mid afternoon bike ride included part of the perimeter of RAF/USAF Molesworth via a hard surface bridleway. Home to a high security nature reserve by the look of it. I believe they may also be reading Kims il Jongs post here. Anyway its all probably moving to RAF Croughton soon.
The track on the inside is much better but for some reason they wont let you ride on it!
edit- all a bit tangled up
Holy Ghost Alley in Sandwich.
Sir Henry Percy KG 'Harry Hotspur' 1364 - 1403
A newly cleared off (all foliage removed) 'Boot & Shoe Garage', opposite the old pub of the same name
There looks to be a newly located caravan storage/sales/repair business starting there
This is on the 'old' A1, just by the point where the A63 joins from 'Peckfield Bar'/Leeds
Locals (or A1 travellers) may remember that there was a flyover here, to join the A1-south
How it looked 4 years ago
Surprisingly. Geograph has none of the 'B & S', but this is the location, as it is now (map below picture)
The photographed garage is between the Motel, & the B1222 (on the south-bound side)
EDIT @ 20:05
1988 map of the area, note flyover marked
An old photograph??
Second admission of the day
In a a glass-case inside http://www.squires-cafe.co.uk/index.asp
Previously there was a 70's Kawasaki in it, a ''Triple' (750, I think?)
Now this beauty is in there
Sorry for reflections
Another work-orientated picture..........
