I get to play with LIDAR too, which is great for finding things in woodland
You find all sorts of strange things in the woods...
One from the Copper Kettle
Any ideas on these two?
Numbers are regular on these, placement isn't. No railway or canal nearby.
Unable to get in for this one
Whereas this has two uses. BM bottom right.
Has the end been reached?
Saint John's Church, Warley.
Bench mark has been covered.
Marked as a trig point as well
Just up the(Burnley) road.
Mark partially hidden
Just up the road from the second picture in this post, opposite side of the road.
How many schools have a guard house like this?
The one this replaced was simply broken up and thrown.
Gibbet Street, near the high level railway.
Willing to trust a name like this?
And how the name came about.
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.
A few from t'other days ride around the shire.
Firstly, a carving, in the stone portal, on Thornby Hall, now a Buddhist meditation centre, that some utter twonk has thought it acceptable to drill two holes and tap rawlplugs into!
Someone should do that in their head. Muppets
And breathe. ...
Then, in Hollowell, a slightly different cut mark on a cottage on the green.
Final find was just spotted, as I rode past, as the weeds were almost covering it, was in Little Brington, close to Nobottle Road.
I dig clear the weeds away to stop it getting lost forever.
Middleton (of all places!!)
(just south of the M621)
As I took these, I had to step out of the way of 3 scrotes, riding along a bike-lane, on a Scooter, the wrong way, causing a bus to brake sharpley
They even give Scrotes a bad name!!!!
A61 Barnsley - Wakefield Road
Just south of NewMillerDam
I've tried to find one on here before, but never found it
It's just ahead of my front wheel, on the south-bound side
Scroll down to the Saville Town - Royston, then NewMillerDamBarnsley Road bridge
http://www.lostrailwayswestyorkshire.co.uk/Royston Savile town.htm
A cracking collection
Now we need to send you out photographing the vernacular style known as 'Halifax Houses'
Ie; Peel House, on the hill from Luddenden Foot, towards Wainstalls, or 'Wood Lane Hall, below the Church Style(?) pub up Sowerby New Road
A61 (Wakefield - Barnsley section)
In woodland just south of NewMillerDam, before the crossroads, for Royston (Vasey) & Staincross
An abandoned, & uncompleted (1930's) outdoor swimming pool, and Summer-House/changing rooms
There is an 'island' which may have been planned as a sun-lounging platform?
The summer-house remains
Steps into the pool, straight in front of the summer-house
It's shown on the 1955 map, as the rectangle, with the feeder pond to the west
The 'M.P' shown on the A61, is not there anymore
A couple of new to me os marking's I discovered on this morning's ride .
A nice clean benchmark on Milton Ernest Lower School .
And a faceplate on a bridge over the Ouse in Radwell .
Ridden past both a few times but never spotted before .
Earlier this afternoon
Adjacent to (the old) Wakefield Bridge (aka Chantry Bridge)
There was, in very late 1800s/early 1900s, a manufacturer of 'agricultural implements' here
Which was rather good placing, as there was the Aire & Calder Navigation Canal (see 2nd pic), & access to the goods yard of KirkGate Railway Station, roughly 300 yards away
See the (Charles Clay) address, on the advertisement; https://www.gracesguide.co.uk/File:...QDBZZ8zFas1teQ7PR7-SiHZr2-SwMbWXxIE6q4xgVUuR4
This was a basin/'arm' of the A&CNC, which was access to the Offices/workshops, which were in the yard to the left
(the 'Private Road' stone is in the wall)
The access, as it is now
'Chantry Bridge' to the right
The A&CNC offices/workshop to the left, Board Room to the right
To follow on from the above 'A & CN C' basin/old arm
Whilst out for a ride this morning, I left Doncaster Road, as it entered the south of the City, & ventured to Fall Ings Lock (which is a short 'cut', to avoid the weir on the River Calder, at Wakefield Bridge(s)
Opposite the lock, rejoining the Calder, there's the stopped/silted-up remains of the lock
I've no idea if there's any remnants of the lock-gates, but the stonework is still fairly intact
Apologies for poor images, but it was widdling it down
Kidderminster clock tower, and the back of a GR postbox, in the town centre.
Luckily, at just gone 22.30, no one noticed a 60foot 44 tonne truck parked up so I could jump out and take a photo
