  4. 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

    DSCF4406.JPG DSCF4408.JPG DSCF4269.JPG
    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

    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

  13. A newly cleared off (all foliage removed) 'Boot & Shoe Garage', opposite the old pub of the same name
    Peckfield. Boot & Shoe.  Garage. 2.JPG
    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??
