The first set of images on this page were taken whilst on holiday in Derbyshire a few years ago.
In a small hamlet I found an abandoned chapel, very gothic with a very strong atmosphere.
It’s a great shame when buildings like this are allowed to decay.
A detailed image of a window in the Chapel.
A final image of the chapel capturing some of the gothic atmosphere.
In an abandoned quarry in Derbyshire this silo is all that remains.
The next images were taken around Rosedale in the North York Moors. This is one of my favorite place, I discovered it in my twenties and I have walked it several times.The walk follows the track of an old mineral railway around the valley, both coal and iron ore were mined in the area. A great walk over 8 miles in beautiful countryside, we started in thick fog and finished in bright sunshine. Ben the dog was knackered and decided to move no more on the following day.
I believe this building held an engine for hauling wagons up an incline.
A bank of lime kilns at Rosedale.
Another building on the desolate moor.
A final image of Rosedale, in places a very lonely part of the moor.
The next images were taken on the River Thames at Teddington Lock in 2012.
The suspension bridge across Teddington Lock.
Looking downriver towards the Lock Basin.
A nice image of the start of the bridge.
