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..........
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.
