End of season picture

This is a photo of Strickley Athena 3 (taken by a professional photographer at the Dairy Event in September). After a successful show season she deserves the recognition.

Old Lane to New Lane

Early in 2003 we started work on widening the "Old Lane" - the track from the yard down to the fields that runs behind the old barn. Over 6 years later we're still improving it. It's now technically a new lane (though still known as the Old Lane) and runs behind Wellbank. These photos show the progress from 2003 (the first 10 photos) and the rather magnificent wall and steps built this past week. A very green construction - no cement and all the stones came out of ploughing (see the post of 19th April).

This may or may not work . .

If I have done this correctly, I have embedded the code for Chris Rea's new single from the BBC website (all perfectly legal!).
