Seagulls congregation!

This pair of phillips MA90's seems to be liked by this small flock of Black Headed Gulls. These lights lie just behind the ASDA store at Monks Cross. The snow fell today at just gone midday, by time it was 1pm the snow was rain and the snow on the ground was turning into black ice - damn rain!

We're now on the slip road that also serves as the new Copmanthorpe access road. You can see the new junction in the distance.

A64-07-ECML Bridges

When the East Coast Main Line was being electrified in the late 1980s, the bridge that was here was too low to give sufficient clearance for the trains and the live electric cables, so the bridge had to be replaced. It will have been no more than 15 years ago since I actually remember being driven over the temp. bridge as a child. The thing was, this new bridge was only designed to take 1 carraigeway and a generous footpath/cycle way, so when this became two lanes, an additional footbridge over the railway

A64-08-Copmanthorpe road junction

This is the junction where the road into Copmanthorpe veers off the A1036 slip road. The junction is controlled by traffic lights but they weren't actually working at the time. There's even a pelican crossing here, so that the residents of Copmanthorpe can walk to the nearby Tesco without getting run over.

Lendal Bridge - Geograph - 766795.jpg
Lendal Bridge
A Victorian construction across the River Ouse.

Lendal Bridge is part of Station Road, the A1036.
The parapet of the bridge features the ornate designs of the white rose of York, the crossed keys of the Diocese of York, and the lions of England. Further ironwork displays York�s coat of arms and the letters V & A for Victoria and Albert. The bridge was originally intended as a toll bridge and the two tollhouses at either end of the bridge are cafes.

The photo was taken from the sixth floor of the Park Inn Hotel. <a href=''>SE6051 : The Park Inn Hotel</a>

Street lighting in York. An unusual combination seen here. Odd that a Holophane QSM lantern has been used for this column with that bracket.

Street lighting outside York railway station. These are all 8 metre columns seen here. The lantern in the foreground is a Thorn Alpha 8, but the lanterns in the background are believed to be Urbis Stratums.
