    Conisbrough, the town I was born in.
    The station house is where the actor Donald Pleasance lived as a child when his father was station master here.

    I was there in the summer - I'm afraid I found it a bit underwhelming....

    No it’s the deserted village of Long Sandall north of Doncaster. The church opens in summer for one weekend and two carol services during advent.
    They are building a new estate on the ruins of the old farm.

    Loads of people ambling around the muddy bits they have been told to avoid. I can't entirely blame them, the desire to get up close is obvious. But nicking bits of the walls etc is just bang out of order.

    And just to the right in this photo is the Gibraltar Rock, in possibly one of the best locations for a pub.

    Yeah, it's still going although it's not as good as it used to be. There's still some decent stuff, but there's an increasing number of proper companies and people selling absolute shite :(

    There's was a conservatory company touting for business today :facepalm:

    Last time I was there the 'green ginger' wasn't as good. Might have a look through in the new year.
    Who on earth goes to a market and comes back with a conservatory :D.
