Pylon (as in corner of epw057585).

Its not a canal unless its frozen solid - there is a car driving on it here

Sorry. I think this is another of the pylons I've marked in epw057585. The two between the one in the corner of that image (referenced, but not marked), and your one are not at all obvious.

This seems a fairly major road. Does it really go round three sides of the field, near the farm after the row of cottages?

Chris Willis
Monday 12th of August 2013 02:57:07 PM
I think the answer is yes. But the road by the farm may be even more major, coming from the right, past the other buildings.

Is is a Tower Cafe? They used to have a tower on them and were usually on a main road as they were transport cafe,s

I'm not sure this is a canal. It doesn't appear to continue on the other side of the road and there is a gap in the fence leading on to it

Also visible in EPW057585 and EPW057588.

Is this some sort of a race course? I can see only one plausible jump.

Chris Willis

I'd say there were two or three obstacles: one on the left, one bottom right by a tree, and a possible obstacle (perhaps 2 staggered jumps) on the back straight next to the hedge. It looks like there's a yard with stables at top right - is this a training stables?

Shirley Race Course, now Shirley Golf Club

This looks like some sort of gatehouse. What else would appear to block a new looking road coming in from the right of the picture where it joins the road running across the picture. That it is a road is confirmed by the car to the right of this building. If only we could see what is at the end of the white road that turns at a right angle. Is it the drive to a large house or perhaps the entrance to a military establishment? It seems to expect a lot of traffic if the width of the surface is anything to go by.

I believe this is the entrance road into what was Shirley Racecourse. The entrance road is still the same today only it goes to Shirley Golf Course that was built on the racecourse land.

What's this? It doesn't seem to have church features.

Large roadside pub or hotel? Also visible in EPW057586.

I think this is a canal. I was worried that it seemed to have a slope, but it is vertually parallel to the roof line on the building to the right.

I'd put my money on it being a road.

Main road with footpath or cycle track.

Maurice

This looks like a straight road running across the picture from left to right. Wondered if it was a railway but cannot find any of the normal features associated with such.

I've just realised that this picture connects with EPW057584-EPW057588. The left edge of the allotments is visible in EPW057585 and EPW057588, and the road running left to right is visible in EPW057586.

Unfortunately this pictures has no neighbours in the series to help give glue.

The area in the foreground does not seem to have the normal pattern of building along streets of an English village. It look more like a set of rather over sized allotments or small holdings with the few buildings arranged away form the roads and along the site rather than across them.



Some sort of market gardening community?

Photo taken from quite high altitude (6-7000ft); suggest taken en route.
