    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

  5. 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??

    Previously there was a 70's Kawasaki in it, a ''Triple' (750, I think?)

    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 :smile:

  10. Pontefract
    Tuesday (sorry!!)
    The rear gable of the neglected, ruinous Swales Yard Merchants House:cursing:
    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)

  12. 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?

    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.
