Swift... eh? Nah!


Recommended Posts

Canny run out today, after pub lunch!

Marsden (by Standedge Canal Tunnel)
Over and past The Saddleworth Hotel
Onto A672, over Saddleworth Moor

Christ on a bike.... Some 1:4 and hairpins!!

Really sensed a lengthening brake pedal (constantly in tranny lockdown ๐Ÿ˜ฑ) and the 'smell of death' wisping up from the discs ๐Ÿ˜ต.

When we finally returned to Tesco, to buy a bite for supper, I sizzled my fingers on the front ally spokes..... Gahhhh ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Had a very relaxed [... and turkey baked] trundle out today.

Sowerby Bridge (Tuel Lane lock)
& along Calder Valley...
Hebden Bridge
&M62 back.

Y'know... for a guy thrashing his works van from A to B these places, dotted along the valley, will just be ' bloody queues!'.....

Taking it more sedately, however, there are old mills [the canal is always by the road] and the railway, commanding a large chunk of the little valley bottom left - massive stone arches forcing themselves into/over the road.

Very impressive...

Never seen the Pyramids ๐Ÿค”, "all that history" >> nah, gimmie Industrial Revolution every time.... We have our pyramids ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ˜Ž

Well.... It's not quite so bad IF we keep plenty face vent/draughty windows, whilst tootling along....
