Fab photos, Graham. No. 4 is my favourite with the unexpected view through the door. We must get along to the quarry, it looks fascinating- I’ve often craned my neck to try and see the remains when I should be concentrating on the road along there…

I know what you mean – it is hard to resist trying to get a view of the inclines and drumhouses, albeit fleetingly, from the expressway. It has been well worth satisfying my curiosity by getting a closer look.

You see things I know I would never consider interesting and you make them interesting. I was hooked by the very first photo!

I’m very glad you appreciate my efforts to see things a little differently.
