    Peak District ride today... I probably pedalled past loads of stuff, but I managed to bag a few in Hope village in the last mile!


    A mile post on the way into the village.


    A Flush Bracket on the Old Hall pub.


    And directly opposite, a lovely old cast plate on the church entrance.

    Possibly a few more to bag tomorrow in Castleton and around Jacobs Ladder!

    Suggestions on why they'd place a BM off road. In from the "L" in Lane.

    No BM’s today! Mainly out in the wild..


    One of the regular Mile Posts along the main road.


    And a GR post box on a shop in Castleton.

    Back home now, and back to local finds.

    Clough Lane, former mill/coal warehouse/farm warehouse and in later years a garage and joiners workshop
    Clough Lane, junction with Clough Lane.
    Clough Lane, junction
    Coal hole cover, different covers denoting who supplied the coal.

    The three BM's above are unlisted, the one that is listed, Mill Lane(Upper Lower), was removed by someone "driving" a bus away from a bus stop. He took the corner of the wall away 50 foot away from the stop.

    Underage and not actually being a bus driver may have had something to do with him crashing.

    WW2 geograph,
    RAF Greenock seaplane maintenance base, closed in 1945 and used sporadically in the 50s commercial use.
    This slipway is all that's left.


    Interestingly just around the corner of the built up area mid left was the first commercial (claimed) hovercraft ferry service.
    It was a noisy mofo, the YouTube clip is from the North Ayrshire/Cowal areas in the '60s(just across the river)
    Edit, The first landing was at Largs, I should have known, I spent most of a winter helping to repair parts of the sea wall.

  8. Hey, we all thought that was the coolest thing when they first came out. I had a Matchbox hovercraft. Roughly contemporary to that.

    I used to work on the hovercrafts, SRN4’s, in the 70’s in Ramsgate.

    I was born outside Ramsgate, on the Manston Road. Not actually on the road, in a house.

    How did your ears cope?
    I could hear this thing miles away up over the hills.
    The houses in the vicinity were up in arms about it.

    Cue Monty Python sketch
