I was stationed right about 5 miles up from Sandsend in winter of 1955 in the RAF.

We were cut off for 3 weeks with 30 ft snow drifts.(The snow ploughs couldnt reach us )

There was a radar station there at the top of Lythe bank..Called 'Goldsboro.' Now covered with a mound of grass & 60 ft of concrete. Dave ex Bradford now in CA USA..

Anyone remember this RAF camp ?

Jim Evans (AXOTA) on December 27, 2008

Yeah, I remember that RADAR Station very well Dave, it was probably linked to the DANBY ""HOME" RADAR Station a few miles inland.

I also remember there being a few RAF houses at EAST BARNBY for those stationed at Goldsborough.

Your memory is testament to the bitterly cold and snowy winters that were more common in your, and my own lifetime!! You must also remember the winter of 47, and 62 (I worked as a technician for RCA at the time and was snowed in for 10 days)

Thanks for calling in Dave--Kind regards to you in CA--USA ;>)

You had a great idea for this shot! I like such unusual frames:)

Jim Evans (AXOTA) on April 7, 2009

Greetings Monika, I too enjoy looking at unusual views taken through arches, doorways, tunnels, fissures, in fact anything that frames the subject.

The view from the other side of this bridge can be seen just HERE

Many thanks for your nice compliment ;>)

Kind regards,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Jim

Hello JIM. Very nice catch to see the North Sea it agitated by this bridge, well seen.

Greetings of France, of city Narbonne, My gallery on one page, Roger.

Impressive waves, beautifully caught. Nothing for my kayak. I see from your descriptions that the sea can cause disaster. Greetings from Sweden, Mats.

Jim Evans (AXOTA) on September 22, 2010

Hello Roger..apologies for the late reply..The North sea reduced this bridge to rubble about 55 years ago..This one is made from much stronger material ;>)

Greetings matsljungberg...Those Kayaks are very seaworthy craft in the hands of an expert..The local lifeguards use them for rescues in the surf..It is the cabin cruisers who are at the greatest risk.

Thank you for stopping by..I enjoyed your feedback ;>)

Kind regards to you both ;>)

To me, this is the harmony of the north Jim. I can almost hear the waves rolling in.


Dee Wainwright on April 11, 2011

I like this :-)

Jim Evans (AXOTA) on April 11, 2011

beegood~~Bridges are a significant factor in most peoples lives Maja....We build bridges, metaphorically speaking, many times in our lives..to strengthen the link that bonds all humans together...This bridge is my gateway to the pounding surf and golden sands! and thankfully, it brought you here once more!

Denise Gregory~~~~I know this place so well Denise..a playground for young lads where we could re-enact our schoolboy fantasies for piracy, or armies fighting an imaginary enemy, building massive sandcastles and galleons from driftwood, rafts from old fuel drums..the world was ours to conquer, here on these endless beaches!

Kind regards to you both!
