091002 Huddersfield From Castle Hill



It would be easy to get the impression from the photographs I normally feature that I live in a rural part of the country. But Huddersfield is in the midst of the West Riding conurbation and has a strong industrial heritage. This photograph was taken this morning and looks down on the town from the top of Castle Hill. I will return to the subject of Castle Hill tomorrow.

But the neatest thing is that you can drive there and see it in a minimal amount of time. My Chicago son and now wife did London last year and he said he would return often. I like to see the landscapes as your history and terrain is so interesting.

Well the pictures of your landscapes of the history and terrain are so interesting. (Blogging has made me really aware of sentence structure and correct verb usage and the practice of it has improved my skill) I just hate how you post a comment and you are unable to get it back for the correction of errors. Have a good day!!!

Hello Alan,

What a wonderful view. Someday I hope to see the North of England for myself. As I type my wife's parents are in the last week of a six week holiday that has taken them all over England. As far North as New Castle including Wales and Cumbria. They should have left Manchester yesterday for Oxford which is their last destination before a night in London.

I really like this picture, the view, the clouds...I'd just like to sit on a bench and look out over the countryside.

That bench would be my favorite spot. What a view. I had to look up that word, conurbation, as I had never seen it used before. I had heard conglomeration and felt your word must be a variation of that one. LOL Live and learn.
