    Some from a walk round town today.

    This building is bound to get demolished at some point, which is a shame. It's been squatted recently - I think by the same group that took over the old Cornerhouse cinema.

    Owen Street development. This will be the tallest of the cluster of towers, something around 200m I think.

    Old wall on the River Medlock. It looks like they built the wall around trees that were on the river bank before - they look like old tree trunks anyway.

    The council have said they'll clear the square soon. The flower carpet is bigger now, and there was a bagpipe band all in kilts and bearskins.

    A nice little warren of back streets round that bit of town - but not the bit next to noisy Atlas bar, obviously. I've lived next to a motorway and rail line, and that didn't bother me at all - but human voices always wake me up.

    Given its connected to the lamp above the doorway, it might be a gas lamp - the red thing the tank. But vulnerable to vandalism though...

    Seems incredibly stupid to have a petrol tank either in or right next to your house. What could possibly go wrong? :hmm:

    There were two of these petrol pumps still in use in Cloughton north of Scarborough only a few years back.
    Talking of Wainfleet, Lincs, Puddy_Tat, do you know if there is still the coal fired fish and chip shop there. The fish and chips were really good I remember.
