How Hill Tower near Wallerthwaite, North Yorkshire. I’ve learnt the tower sits on the site of the ‘Chapel of Saint Michael de Monte’. It was built 1718-23, by John Aislabie (he was expelled from the House of Commons, where he had been appointed as Chancellor of the Exchequer, after being found guilty of the ”most notorious, dangerous and infamous corruption”).

Doris Schweizer is a member of the Cyclane Pro Cycling Team. Taken during the Women’s Tour de Yorkshire. I just liked the juxtaposition of this one. Two different worlds – I have no doubt the motorway traffic was oblivious to her and her ‘attendants’ and vice versa.
For my sins, I have become a enthusiastic cyclist (nose over the front wheel – well as far as my stomach will let me!), as oppossed to just using my bike as a means of transport. (I’ve got to do something to lose those pounds and raise the heart rate!)
