Hidden Urban Pond

This pond is hidden from view in between the football ground and the local Asda supermarket.
It looks entirely natural, but it was once part of an extensive cooling system for the long gone steelworks.
Even though some use it as a rubbish dump, when you look closer you can see how nature has reclaimed it.

Ferry Beach

Ferry beach has been the home of the messing about in boats brigade for as long as I can remember. The area pictured has always been used for building and repair of working and fishing boats but just a bit further up the beach the dreaded yellow wellie brigade are starting to take over with their plastic pleasure craft. I love the huts on stilts which as well as being used as workshops are the working mans hideaway for a cup of tea and a gossip.

End of the Road

Looks like it's the end of the road for this particular racing banger. But don't think that it's worthless, the remnants of this car are still worth£140 or so as scrap metal.
