This was taken in Elland about thirty years ago. The combination of the cast-iron chimney pots, the TV aerials and the statue make for a wonderful photo. I must go and investigate whether they are all still there.

Looking back over the past nine months of this blog there must be dozens of pictures of the Crematorium that Amy and I walk through most days. There are enough seasonal photos amongst them to easily produce a calendar. "A Year In The Huddersfield Crematorium", I can see it now on the Christmas shop shelves.
At this time of year it is easy to lose Amy, our soft-coated wheaten terrier. The gold and brown leaves provide perfect cover. Sometimes she will stand perfectly still and you need to screw your eyes up looking for her. And then a squirrel will climb a tree and she is off like the wind and the leaves fly into the sky as she leaps towards her pray. Unsuccessfully I am glad to say.
Dave came around for some photos for his new bus pass the other day. Couldn't help including this in the batch. We decided we would pin it up in the pub and ask for suitable slogans. The best so far is : "Dave realised he had probably made a mistake in going to that new Taliban shop when he decided to have a make-over".
