And the inscription in the lych-gate
Presumably, of the brewing family, of Tadcaster?
(Oxton Hall, was in the family, & may still be?)

They certainly like to mix their sci fi metaphors. There’s also a frozen Han Solo next to the cash machine.

When I was riding through Northampton University, I saw this sign on Electric Avenue.

Climbing over a wooden fence got me and the bike this close! (The pill box is behind the blue railings.)

It's not in the best condition, and flooded.
Once I managed to get past it, there is a landing stage, presumably to unload ammo and Dad's Army personnel.

This is a telephoto pic from 100 yards across the River Nene. Landing stage to the left, and the pillbox is just visible through the dark hole bottom right!

No wonder I've never spotted it even though I ride this path regularly..
Once back on the proper path, I spent quite a while removing teasels and sticky burs from just about every bit of my clothing!
I do suffer for my trigging!! :laugh:

Ive been there many times for jobs over the years and never knew that was there. Perhaps part of one of the stop lines?

Me neither. There's a newish sign for the Civil War site at the Hardingstone Dyke end of Electric Avenue. When I looked on a Uni map (the roads & car parks are fairly recent) I saw a notation on it that mentioned it.

The only map that seems to mention it is the Wahoo Element app/map!

It still amazes me what lurking in the undergrowth! 😳

Keeper Lane
Between Tong & Fulneck
(south-west of Pudsey)

Many year ago (early - mid 90s) we used to ride down, or up, here, as part of a loop-ride
Priesthorpe, New Pudsey, Tyersal, Fulneck, Cockersdale, Tong (etc)


I'd dropped wife & daughter off at Tong Garden Centre, & parked not far from The Greyhound pub, & went for a walk over to Fulneck
