Monochrome Monday hosted by Aileni
As it is very frosty and cold I am driving to work, shameful, yes,
as its only 1.75 miles uphill down hill in nose to tail traffic.
I park in the nearest car park, courtesy of the City Council, a perk of the job.
Thank you very much.
And this is what l see on my short walk from car park to work!
silhouette of castle gate
looking back over my shoulder where l have walked from
the very ineffectual Millennium Bridge
this is the entrance to the underpass,
which takes us under the dual carriageway that separates
the Castle from the city, the Museum and Cathedral
this is the underpass decorated with old local industrial machinery
and the Cursing Stone produced for the Millennium
and inscribed with a centuries old curse
it receives the wrath of locals as it is considered the cause of all our recent ills,
Foot & mouth and the Floods
the marble floor containing prominent local and Reiver's name
locals relive memories of times gone by, war stories, family histories and more...
