Picture Gallery 4: This is the last of the odds and sods images. Many of the images on here were taken when I used to drive around the country on my own.I am a firm believer to which,it’s always better to explore you own country before going abroad. We will never see the amazing thins the British Isles have to offer, ok the weather is crap but it’s home. That’s my feeling anyway.
The images on the page roam between: Yorkshire, Derbyshire and my home county of Surrey.
Picture Gallery 4.1 – Whilst walking the dog around the hills of Derbyshire I came across this old Chapel. It had not been used for many years but it had a charm and a sense of mystery to it. Sitting in the middle of nowhere it was very atmospheric.
Picture Gallery 4.2 – A leaded window in the stone wall of the chapel, the ivy gives it a look of abandonment.
Picture Gallery 4.3 – Even though it was daytime, the small graveyard was full of mystery and very very spooky.
Picture Gallery 4.4 – Gothic look or what, I printed this with hard black and whites to try to give it a ghostly feel.
Picture Gallery 4.5 – In an abandoned quarry in Derbyshire this silo is all that remains of the extensive buildings and crushing plant that was once here.
The next images were taken on the River Thames at Teddington Lock in 2012.
Picture Gallery 4.6 – The suspension bridge across Teddington Lock.
Picture Gallery 4.7 – Looking downriver towards the Lock Basin.
Picture Gallery 4.8 – A nice image of the start of the bridge.
The next images were taken around Rosedale in the North York Moors. This is one of my favourite 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.
Picture Gallery 4.9 – I believe this building held an engine for hauling wagons up an incline from one of the many mines in the area.
Pictures Gallery 4.10 – The moor was huge and very empty, its a great place to see.
Pictures Gallery 4.11 – The final image on this gallery page, a bank of lime kilns at Rosedale.
