foto Cool, gracias por una vista inolvidable de la voz Danyel. Ahora tengo más tiempo para tirar algunas fotos de los polacos.

Do I detect double yellow lines in the black & white photo?? Love the comparison.

This is Lower Lanshaw Dam, the middle of 3 reservoirs located in the Burley Moor section of Rombalds Moor (often just known as Ilkley Moor). The other 2 are High Lanshaw Dam and Carr Bottom Reservoir

Good photo I know this area well, Thanks.

Great shot! You really caught it at a perfect time; the yellow carpet of buttercups and daffodils looks stunning. Nice work :-)

Otley Show began in the late 1700s when the farmers around the town were keen to apply developments in agriculture taking place elsewhere in England. A competition for various livestock classes was conducted in 1796 - the event acted as a focus for the local farming community to promote and encourage improvements in livestock breeding and it has continued to the present day.

The show has become more commercial in modern times but still affords visitors an opportunity to see prize animal breeds like these Clydesdale Horses - belonging to the Bradford Industrial Museum - which are participating in the heavy horse turnout challenge.

Great shot Steve! I had spotted this on the horizon when visiting the lead mines at Grassington and was hoping Google Earth could provide some answers as to what it was. Thanks for sharing :-)

I'd been to Spofforth Castle once before and marvelled at the entrance to a sealed medieval passageway in the bedrock, so I was delighted to discover this entirely unrelated tunnel nearby when exploring the area this weekend. It is a little under 400 feet long and appears to date to the mid 1800s; built by the York and North Midland Railway company.

It runs right under the embankment of the now-disused railway line (closed in 1964) and was apparently constructed as a passage for the stream to the west of Spofforth known as 'Park Beck'. The tunnel is split into two adjacent channels - the stream currently runs through the other one; this section was perfectly dry and in excellent condition. I'm inclined to believe that the stream once ran through both channels - a tunnel for pedestrians wouldn't really have been necessary as there is a viaduct just beyond the embankment which would have allowed people to cross the path of the railway.

Yes! at last, a real heritage photo.

Thanks for the interesting commentary TJBlackwell

It gets my vote.

Kind regards

Jim
