One on this morning's ride taken along the Ridge , Great Doddington.
What you see from a car..........
and what you see from a bike. The 14th century gatehouse of Hulne Abbey.
I was out & about around Altofts/Castleford earlier
1. Leyland Comet
Possibly 1957 -1960 model
Presumably, belonging to the Fairground families that reside in the yards in the Potteries area?
2. 1965 Dodge Custom Royale (pink/black)
1960 Studebaker Hawk (bronze)
1964 Ford Galaxie Country Sedan 'Wagon'
Oddly, it's right-hand-drive!!!
Maybe of Belgian/German manufacture?
3. Ford Capri 2,0S
Rather oddly sized tyres, & an even odder rear-spoiler!
It still appears to have the 'fishnet' Recaro seats in place!!
Rather curiously/co-incidentally all 5 vehicles were less than 100yards from each other!!
The Dodge, & Studebaker, are both for sale
The Galaxie, is (I think) there for restoration
4. Co-Operative Society Building
My window boxes in work are back on track after the beast from the east battered them
'Newton Abbey' (as it is named)
Probably a Chapel, or large farm/manor house, that was abandoned?
This is practically all that remains

Apologies for quality, the camera was trying to focus on the hedge

Pelargonium Mabel Grey. As lemon scented as a lemon scented thing
Got drenched out in the woods yesterday.
Mine is from yesterday
It's an area of the garden that was all dug up and well disturbed last year when we had the patio extended .

One from within the garage
Out this morning before the clouds came and the threat of snow.
I was supposed to be doing a 200km audax today, but decided not to...
