    I love Saltaire, only been a couple of time, but there is just something about it.

    Am I correct in thinking that the John Speed memorial was in alongside the path that goes under the railway. Along with two others?

    A couple of cut marks from recent rides.
    Firstly one on a bridge on the A535 near Jodrell Bank.

    Et voila, Jodrell Bank from just along the lane.

    And another cut mark on a bridge in Lower Peover, close to the pub, the Bells of Peover, on the B5081.

    Whilst in Knutsford visiting the Sunday makers' market yesterday came across what is the most neatly painted cut mark I've seen. It's on a building which the blue plaque says used to be the old police station. Apparently the cell block, which is now accommodation, survives in the yard at the back. It's on Bexton Road which and is only a little way from the current police station (which, in itself, is quite an old building).

    Nice walk around the Edwardian Sywell Reservoir today.

    Some interesting tie bar ends, and a bat box.

    IMG_05022019_141624_(700_x_1000_pixel).jpg

    Several metal ventilation mushrooms.

    IMG_05022019_141442_(1000_x_700_pixel).jpg

    (Possibly,) a bolt on the dam wall. @biggs682 it's just to the right at the top of the steep steps, if you want to check it out.

    And, finally, a nice BM and the remains of a bolt, on Magdalen Church in Ecton.
