Another work-orientated picture..........
Out and about offroad during the Beast from the East, just brilliant.
I've done the southern fence reached by going up through Molesworth village, there was a sign pointing to the right, the track was very narrow and lots of overgrowing brambles and rose briars and it came out near the main entrance. When I got home and checked the map that section didn't seem to be bridleway.................... at least I didn't get shot
The rear gable of the neglected, ruinous Swales Yard Merchants House
It was the 'Counting House' pub for a few years
Suspected to date back to the 1400's in parts (& oldest building in Pontefract, after the Church & the Castle)
Liquorice Way end of the building (Swales Yard, to the right)

On the side of what is now a Tattoo parlour
National Cycle Route 1, near Warkworth
I had a ride over to see my buddy/work-collegue Chris, who's been off work for a while with medical problems
During the visit I took a few pictures in his town
Hillman Avenger, at a garage on ClunterGate
The left-hand shop was a photographers/photography show
It's certainly been closed a while, as the (painted) phone number is '0924'
The '01...' numbers came into being in 1995 (I checked)
The right-hand show was a Tobacconists
It seems as though it's used for something now (storage?), as that window/blind look quite recent, & the door left that way for effect, or to make it look as though there's nothing work breaking in for?
See what I mean...?
My first car was a Chrysler 1600 Super Estste
Funny how the world turns sometimes. The black Condor we've had for years but although it fits three people in the house no one rides it. Selling it though, requires fresh powdercoat as the original lacquer has yellowed badly and gone sticky. Weird. Anyway, I stripped it down ready for refinishing and that very day I happened across the blue one in the corner of a friend's workshop and purchased it from him for sixty quid. It's a cross bike which will get some extra braze ons to convert it into a tourer. It was as if holding a bare Condor frame magically attracted another one to me.

The 'bowing Courtier' was the emblem of Melbourne Brewery (of Leeds)
One from this morning's ride
Cute wee Beetle
No bike today to put in front of the church: Chew Magna. It looks like the tower is taller than the church is long.
Here's one from today's outing - a bridleway I'd be seriously impressed if a horse could have navigated!

If I could ever drive, it'd be a Beetle
