A Yorkshire Weekend - Hebden Bridge 5/7

We had a weekend away in mid-September and visited among other places Hebden Bridge and this week this series will concentrate on a few shots of that small town.

Taken from the Packhorse Bridge I showed yesterday this is a view looking further upstream with a chimney of one of the old mills well in view.

Beer afficionadoes will note the pub on the left sells Vaux ales and lagers, a good old Northern brand if memory serves me correct.

As with yesterday's beautiful image, Brian, in all the detail my eyes are drawn to things like the "garden" in the roof guttering, top left.

These are wonderful pictures.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray, now I never noticed that garden, what searching eyes you have.

I remember lots of chimneys there from industry Brian
Brian Walbey: Yes the chimneys and mills are still there Chris but put to different uses now I believe.

If I didn't already have dibs on Holland, I might want to be moving to your fair country, Brian, based on all the places like this you have shown (but do not tell Lady P I said so)! smile
Brian Walbey: We do have some lovely places Ginnie as lots of us Brits.show on SC, but sadly in other ways the country is not what it was as you have also probably gathered by peoples remarks from time to time. I hinted to Lady P that htis might go on your list of places to visit in future times.
I used to like Vauxs beer!
Brian Walbey: I never actually tried it Bill but it always had a good reputation.
You certainly had good weather to explore this place.
Brian Walbey: It was a lovely weekends weather altogether Chad as you will see from the next two weeks postings from other places in the area.
A beautiful set of shots of a beautiful place. I read an article recently though (in the Independent I think) saying the town is associated with a lot of drug and suicide problems.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mark. Sadly the drugs thing is everywhere in our country but suicide is something one doesn't hear much about.

I see it's an all dayer Brian, hope you just had the one tongue
Brian Walbey: We chose to enjoy a snack lunch in the town square, (see Sunday), so didn't get to taste the fine ales Tracy.
Now I can see the chimney, lovely shot Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Linda.
Another good one Brian , the last time we went here you could smell wacky backy in the air.
Brian Walbey: I suspect you can smell wacky backy everywhere these days Michael, sadly. Thanks for commenting.
A few SCer's in there...could be..The hole in the wall gang! Nice shot again Brian.
Brian Walbey: Lol. Thanks Ron, nice place for a pint I should think, we didn't have time to find out.

Beautiful capture. The light and the colors are wonderful. Have a lovely week-end. Antoine.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Antoine. Sadly our weekend has turned very wet so far.

Yes.. but also something called "lager" - uggghh! Good to see the tall chimney left; not all demolished by the steeplejacks, then.
Brian Walbey: Perhaps Fred Dibner didn't get round to this chimney before his sad demise Alan smile

My eyes are instantly drawn to the sign on the left!
Brian Walbey: That is the problem with this composition Ellie but there wasn't too much I could do about that.
super shot Briansmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tim.
I'm very tempted to call in tomorrow if I visit the East Lancs railway and all down to your fine pictures Brian. Although the weather may not be as good as you had though.
Brian Walbey: If the weather is like here today les it will be awful, I should leave it till one of your summer visits to the ELR. It is nice though when ones pictures inspire people to want to visit places you've been.
