"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

Out walking

After the miserable weather we had yesterday, when the clouds were hitting the ground and the rain was only a fingertip away, today is bright and sunny, so Paddy and I made the most of it and set off for our walk.  Off we went, up this road, along that one and round the corner  and we found ourselves here...

The little road we walked up was called Colliery Road, so I guess the clue is in the name.

This is what it looked like inside.
That's what I like about living here, you turn a corner and there you are in somewhere you have never been before. 


  1. I have also just been out for a walk after such an overcast week but when I got out on the moors above Ringinglow I discovered a different climate - still grey and windswept while sunshine ruled in the bowl of Central Sheffield.

  2. In Blogland that weather will be nice the whole year round with only occasional bursts of soothing tropical rain to water the palm trees and vegetable gardens.

  3. Can you make sure it only rains at night and never during the day, please?

  4. I'm a sucker for old industrial buildings if I have my camera with me. They need preserving in pixels before some idiot decides we need another superstore instead.
