A rather neglected inn – Driffield.
The sign says ‘Plasma TV’ maybe they should have spent it on a coat of paint.
An early evening walk in Driffield.

Private parking – Driffield.
Lifting mist as the morning gets warmer: 3.1 ° but getting to 6.9 ° later today.
I make it look as if Driffield is always damp & misty, it’s not. I think it’s my subconscious feelings about UK weather presupposes me to this sort of image, but I’ll get over it eventually.
A cold misty morning walk along ‘River Side’ – Driffield.
Summer and nice warm days have gone again, and the clocks have turned back one hour, making it even more miserable 😉 Ho well, it was nice while it lasted,
The Rowan (Mountain Ash) in our new garden has a profusion of berries this year.
Recalling an old folk tale that I remember from when I was knee-high to a grasshopper; it was a sign of a coming bad winter – we shall see. Especially as the two Holly trees are beginning to show the same. Autumn is well & truly on its way, the very large Ash has filled the garden with fallen leaves in the last week or so.
Although we now live in a small town, we have a number of large trees in the garden, horses pass by the house and a regular flow of farm machinery gives it a feeling of being in the country rather than a town. Double plus good 🙂
It doesn’t seem long since summer started, forgot that this can seem or even be a fleeting period here in UK. Today has been dull, cold & wet; it will soon be time for the central heating to kick in as it’s about 18° C at the moment.
My two guard dogs are out of quarantine i.e their box. I think they were getting a little miffed at being forgotten in the move.
I am told this beck has good Trout fly fishing, something that needs investigation. 🙂
Another, with the hope of not being repetitive 😉
Another fog image from my last walk.
I must admit that I have been inspired by the work of John Todaro who does a far better presentation of fog than I can.
Please take the time and look at his work. https://johntodaro.wordpress.com/
Its been foggy all day, although not as cold. I complained the other day that an early morning walk missed the fog, a late afternoon one was not to be missed.
Riverhead mill built in the mid 19th century of brown brick with a pantiled roof.
It was used as part of Great Driffield’s corn-trading centre & is now a grade II listed building.
Dark, cold & wet.
We have snow again – where is global warming when you want it ? although I remember some years back that there was a scare (sorry serious in-depth report) that we could go into a mini ice age again. Skating on the River Thames and Ebenezer Scrooge or stepping out of the wardrobe and seeing a gas light.
Another two from this mornings impromptu walk along the top end of Driffield canal.
A quick early morning walk along the canal – I had hoped it would be foggy but alas no, just a light mist. It was very cold though.
(yes I know it’s all relative, 1 or 2C. is not 25 to 35C. so I have an excuse)
Construction authorised in 1767, it was fully open for traffic in 1770. Although the railway arrived at Driffield in 1846, the canal prospered until the 1870s, when there became a gradual decline. The last commercial traffic was in 1951, it now being just a lovely walk.
