The Old Pond Inn

Saturday 5th February 2022, 1.30pm (day 3,817)

Old Pond Inn, 5/2/22

Is it too early to be in the pub on a Saturday afternoon? When the weather outside is as grim as it was today, then no. The welcome inside was much warmer.

West Yorkshire’s biggest prong(s)

Emley Moor mast, 27/1/22

The Emley Moor TV transmitting station can be seen from almost everywhere in West Yorkshire, particularly anywhere even vaguely elevated: but then again, that’s the reason why it was built where it was. It’s still the tallest free-standing structure in Britain. Except that it has a companion at the moment; a temporary mast designed to take the load while repairs are conducted, apparently. Yes, I am frustrated by the electricity wires on this shot but this was another day with not much to see, so I’m taking what’s there.

Not the ‘Super League’

Wednesday 21st April 2021, 6.50pm (day 3,257)

Brighouse Sports FC, 21/4/21

In a week when the ‘big clubs’ either took the piss by calling a massive bluff, or finally over-reached themselves with their hubris, it seems apposite to put up a picture of some actual football: you know, the sort where there’s still competition, intimacy, and interest. Plus, a nice background at Brighouse Sports FC of the West Yorkshire League D2 (they’re the ones in yellow, and won 4-0). I find it ‘Super’, anyway.

Mill Royd Mill, Brighouse

Saturday 19th December 2020, 1.35pm (day 3,404)

Mill Royd Mill, 19/12/20

No social commentary whatsoever. I like the shapes, the shadows. Good to get out, even if only to Brighouse.

Factory, Brighouse

Monday 27th August 2018, 12.55pm (day 2,559)

Factory, Brighouse, 27/8/18

Even after seven years, I do try not to repeat myself on here, and so a steady drip-feed of new places has become the means by which this is facilitated. Brighouse lies south of Halifax, not far away from my home but until today, undepicted on here. I was just passing through today however, and this factory caught my eye — it now functions, I believe, as an indoor climbing gym, perhaps for obvious reasons.
