Above - a rather eerie walkway over The River Calder at Horbury Junction west of Wakefield. It is an integral part of the girdered railway bridge that crosses the river at this point. To me it looks as if it would be an ideal venue for a physical assault or a music video but the still photograph suggests the cover of a novel - perhaps "1984" by George Orwell.
I took over a hundred photos yesterday as I strolled out of Netherton towards Middlestown then up to Horbury Bridge and Ossett before curving back through Horbury towards Calder Grove. It was all virgin territory to me - just west of the M1 motorway. At Horbury Bridge between the Calder and Hebble Navigation Canal and the River Calder itself, I spotted this fine public house - "The Bingley Arms". Naturally I thought of John Gray's recently departed old turkey over at "Going Gently" and that is why I have included this picture. Rest in peace Bingley - now gobbling in heaven.
