Wyke Walk 1 : The Advantages Of A Fully Articulated Waist.


The sun shone today and Amy and I walked through the village of Wyke which is a few miles away from where we live. The first of my Wyke Walk photos shows the rather strange entrance to the village recreation ground. There is obviously a purpose to its design, but I cannot imagine what it is. Unless you are a supermodel. you need to rotate your body through 90 degrees and shuffle through the gate. If you had a body which was somehow fully articulated around the waist, I suppose you could get through without shuffling, but such a body doesn't seem to have emerged out of the gene-pool lottery yet. Amy couldn't understand what I was complaining about, she managed to get through without any problem.

Stops horses wandering in and using the swings!

Is this the same Wyke as in 'they're all alike as comes from Wyke and all the birds flies back'ards?'

Ah, it's obviously designed for crawlers!

It is quite obvious, one grabs hold and does a somersault to get in.
Wyke means week but then we are no further ahead...

Oh, they're all along the canal towpath too. And your sideways ruse doesn't work with a backpack on, as I have found to my cost.

Bicycles and motorbikes allowed?

It looks the perfect height to crack a child round the head as they are rushing, excitedly, to grab their favourite swing. Why?
