Watching nature take its course, from the top of a hill in northern England

York Station


Waiting for a train at York, where there is headroom for the tallest of boys.

It must have been a sooty place back in the age of steam.

My work took me to York, but one day I must get over there for  leisurely a photo jolly.

Watching the rhythm of rural life, from the top of a hill in northern England. Having spent most of my life avoiding writing, I now need to do it! I am no domestic goddess, but if I were expecting visitors to my home, I would whisk round with the duster and plump up the cushions and generally make the place look presentable. I hope that by putting my words where others may see them it will encourage me to ‘tidy up and push the Hoover around’ my writing. On the other hand I may just be adding to the compost heap. Only time will tell! Pull up a chair, sit yourself down, I’ll put the kettle on.

  1. You can’t beat those Victorian railway stations for a bit of grandeur. I recall being stuck just outside of that one for some considerable time, with the usual startling lack of explanation from good old British Rail (as they were, then).

  2. I imagine that everywhere was sooty back then! York is a terrific city for a stroll round with camera in hand. xx

  3. Yes, that curving arched roof really is something. York is a grand place altogether and very photogenic.

  4. A few years back, I spend a couple of hours wandering about taking photographs, no-one troubled me to ask me what I was doing – which is quite remarkable in itself this day and age.
