And, turning around, there's a duck-pond

The Sidings
Shipton-by-Beningbrough
(just off the A19)
York

I haven't been past this for years! (at least 12 - 13), so was pleased to see it still open!

It was the site of some railway housing, not the station, that was a few hundred yards to the north, by the next bridge
Apologies for quality, it was a very sunny day

'The' Went Bridge
Wentbridge
Seen from Jackson Lane

The village is about 4 miles south of FerryBridge 'Interchange'. along the A1
Until 1961 (or'62), this carried the 'Great North Road' through the village

On the bridge itself is a plaque

And, in the 2015 'Ackworth Half-Marathon', I struggled from this point, due to Plantar Faciitis, & (hence) a lack of training

I'm sorry, I didn't have time to go & photograph the viaduct, as I was running late, after diverting into York, to photograph the item above

It leads off Hull Road/A1079
Heslington
York

What a great name!!

I saw it on Friday, when l drove into York, to pick Amelia up, after dropping the BWSOW, at Stamford Bridge
Traffic was too heavy to stop there, so I went back that way en-route to collect the BWSOW[/UWSL]

That's not far from me in York, and Wentbridge in your previous post was the scene of my infamous teenage cycle crash described elsewhere on the forum. ^_^

As I stated earlier in the Cycle Street photo, I'd driven that way into York on Friday, and saw something even stranger, but traffic didn't allow a stop

I has plans to take photographs on the Sunday return, but again, couldn't stop (& realised too late that I could have gone into the B&Q car-park
It was the petrol station/storage facility, about 1/2 mile short of the A64, with the Daleks & Cybermen on the roof:eek::eek:
