Lunchtime for the birds on the Exe - a bit of a frenzy after yesterday's incessant snow here.
Back from the Pyrenees today goodby snow and piste .....
Not the best diversion route
Just as well I wasn’t riding a fat bike. I’d never have got thru that gap..,,
Market place at Doncaster on the way back from work
Apologies, second one of the day, but I enjoyed some chilled beer tonight at one of the country's best pubs. Fortunately it's just a five-minute ride from home.
Are they all your empties, @briantrumpet? Ps love your photos, keep them coming.
Yes, empties, but it wasn't me who drank their contents. I merely helped out a little with another barrel tonight.
In case you're wondering, it's The Bridge Inn at Topsham. Well worth a visit.
If I'm ever down that part of the world, will be sure to give it a try. Cheers!
Was curious about the "insurgent country" singer playing there. That is a musical genre that has passed me by....
Occasionally locals Steve Knightley and Phil Beer (aka Show Of Hands) do a gig here... rather amusing, as they can pack the Royal Albert Hall when they choose to play in London.
Out & about today, just 'pottering' really
'Caleb Crowthers Almhouses'
Built for (chosen) poor who worshipped here; http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/660615
There's another Crowthers Almshouses in Ackworth, but attributed to a Mary
I have no idea if any family connection?
(officially; Saint Mary On The Bridge)
One of only 4 remaining Bridge Chapels in the country
I first heard them on the 'Radcliffe & Maconie Show', when they guested during Mark & Stuarts 'Jurassic Coast Walk' (a mixture of live & recorded broadcast)
EDIT @ 14:54
I've just checked my old photo-files, & the Ackworth Almshouses are 'Lowthers', not 'Crowthers'
Just a local 'potter' again, today
Out on the CGR, as I knew I'd be venturing onto tow-paths
After heading out of town, I utilised a very short section of the 'Wakefield Wheel', from Station Road, to Altofts Hall Road, by heading in a northerly direction here; http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/1405344
Once in Altofts, it was past St Marys Church (where we got married) & a right turn, down Foxholes Lane to the Aire & Calder Navigation Canal
Towpath/Birkwood Lock access road
Looking in opposite direction; http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/509906
A substantial stone-constructed culvert that runs under Canal, adjacent to the Birkwood Road bridge, over the Canal
Under this parapet; http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/1843521
Birkwood Road Bridge
My commute-route to work crosses it
A marker stone by the bridge
I'm not sure what the '29' signifies
The two Aquaducts
The bow-bridge is the older, & dates to 1839
Grade 1 listing too
Out on the roadie, first springlike day for a while, still a nasty old wind but lovely to see blue skies and mostly unbroken sunshine.
BT's Morborne Hill radio mast (the concrete one) that's a separate lattice tower behind it. (Cambridgeshire).
Same ride as tower photo above, along the way I met Mike Dooley out near Lutton and The Giddings (Cambs), rode alongside and had a chat, found he was cycling from Middlesbrough to Australia!
He has a Facebook page for anyone interested in his progress.
