    A few from around what has been the local airfield(100 years ago), infectious disease hospital, local zoo, race course, WWII auxillary airfield, and now mainly used by a golf course/club.
    Note the holes.

    HCWW marker, cast iron so seldom just thrown away.

    Mile Stone at a junction. Caused a slight hold up. One driver was so engrossed watching me, that he missed a change of lights.

    Without knowing it's location it's most likely a pylon for an aerial ropeway serving the mining/quarrying industry of old

    Cheers for that. I wasn't even close :sad:

    It's an 'observatory' (also referred to as a pillar) for the Grassholme Tunnel - an aqueduct which links Grassholme Reservoir to Hury Reservoir, built by the Tees Valley Water board between 1901 and 1914.

    All the above derived from beautiful old maps , and the power of the internet :smile: -https://maps.nls.uk/geo/explore/#zoom=17&lat=54.5811&lon=-2.1043&layers=168&b=1

    Now I've posted that link, I can guess what what most of you will be doing tonight :smile:

    Happy exploring :thumbsup:

    Cheers :thumbsup:

    I use that site most days at work and it's superb - especially the 25" to the mile sheets. the downside is that it only covers one epoch

    https://www.old-maps.co.uk covers many epochs, but the available scales and coverage are sometimes limited.

    Between the two and the web I can I can get answers whilst getting paid :smile:

    One from the Copper Kettle
    CAM01238.jpg
    Any ideas on these two?
    CAM01242.jpg
    Numbers are regular on these, placement isn't. No railway or canal nearby.
    CAM01237.jpg
    Unable to get in for this one
    CAM01241.jpg
    Whereas this has two uses. BM bottom right.
    CAM01231.jpg
    Has the end been reached?
    CAM01243.jpg
    Saint John's Church, Warley.
    Bench mark has been covered.
    Marked as a trig point as well
    CAM01244.jpg
    Just up the(Burnley) road.
    CAM01246.jpg

    Just up the road from the second picture in this post, opposite side of the road.
    CAM01207.jpg
    How many schools have a guard house like this?
    CAM01210.jpg
    The one this replaced was simply broken up and thrown.
    CAM01211.jpg

    Gibbet Street, near the high level railway.
    CAM01213.jpg
    Further down
    CAM01214.jpg

    Willing to trust a name like this?
    CAM01216-1.jpg

    And how the name came about.
    Halifax Gibbet.jpg
    It's origional location was further East, around where the block of flats stand in the background.

    And for anyone who wondered about that opening at the side of the gate.
    The clue is in the fact that both were hospitals.

    Deliveries only, every delivery, when there was an "outbreak". Try and contain it. Both were in open locations, away from any housing at the time they were in operation.
