Settle Railway Station.

Settle Railway Station serves the North Yorkshire market town at the southern point of the famous Settle to Carlisle Railway through Northern England. The station is the 2nd station to carry the name, the first being the current Giggleswick stop which opened in 1849, it is approx. a mile to the west of Settle centre. When Settle station opened on the 1st May 1876, It was called Settle New Station and the original one became Settle old before becoming Giggleswick in November 1877, at the same time Settle New removed the new from the title.

The station is staffed part time and has a limited number of facilities. That platforms were connected by a barrow crossing at the northern end of the platforms, this was replaced by a bridge in 1993. The bridge was taken from Drem Railway Station, East Lothian when the line had been upgraded to electric making the bridge defunct. It looks like the bridge has always been there in my opinion. The old barrow crossing is still used by station staff and wheelchair users. The station gained Grade II listed status in March 1984 and the station signal box which closed also in 1984 has been restored by the Friends of the Settle - Carlisle line.

The pictures were taken on the 23rd August 2016 using a Nikon d3300 SLR camera. There are a total of 18 pictures available to view, with 12 that can be seen here and on Flickr and an additional 6 exclusive to Clickasnap. There is a link to the album below. There are also a select few available to buy in 6x4 size on Ebay UK. Just search Settle station.

Cross Stone (St Pauls) Church, Todmorden.

Cross Stone Church also known as St Pauls is a defunct church overlooking the town of Todmorden, West Yorkshire. Built in 1832 replacing earlier churches that have stood on the site since at least 1450, continuing to be used as a place of worship until 1978 when the building was declared unsafe and was said to be sliding down the hill.

When Todmorden was the boundary between Yorkshire and Lancashire St Pauls served the Yorkshire community with St Mary's Church serving Lancashire. Since Boundary changes in 1888 the town has wholly been part of Yorkshire. The church has had the cock face removed and offers quite a spooky setting on some of the lower walls. There are a set of stocks built in to the east wall, now part of a wild garden.

I had passed the church many times along the main Calder Valley road and the Rochdale Canal and had always meant to visit, I didn't realise it was closed and privately owned until I got the chance on 22nd April 2017. I took the pictures using a Nikon d3300 SLR camera. There are 8 that can be seen here and on Flickr, with an additional 2 available to view on Clickasnap via the links below.

Venice Trip Day 1 Pictures.. 29 October 2018

Day 1 is a set of pictures taken in and around Venice, Italy on Monday 29th October 2018. On the day we arrived Venice was hit by some of the worst flooding in over a decade reaching almost 3 foot deep in places, especially around the St Marks Square area. These pictures were taken around the airport and hotel areas as they were the only areas reachable on the first day.

They were taken using either my Sony phone, Amazon tablet or Nikon d330 SLR camera. They can be seen here, with selected ones also available to view on Clickasnap with no tags, full size and resolution via the links underneath them.

Vintage Railway Posters of the World.

Currently sorting through my collection of images that I have acquired over the years trying to find stuff to do with them and found over 200 vintage railway posters. I have taken an initial 26 from them and turned them in to a slideshow - video, which can now be viewed both here and on YouTube. The posters are mainly from the United Kingdom but there are also posters from other parts of the world.


I purchased many of my images copyright free and as far as I am aware that is the case with these. if I am misinformed I will remove them if asked by the copyright holder.

Raphael Kirchner.. Pin Ups and Vintage Girls.

I have recently acquired a collection of copyright free pictures and was at a loss with what to do with them, they feature old travel posters, autographs, pin up girls from various artists, Victorian erotica and celebrities. It felt a bit of a waste to just have them sat around doing nothing so I took 30 pictures from the Raphael Kirchner collection and turned them in to a short slideshow - video for YouTube, which can also be viewed here.


Raphael Kirchner was an Austrian artist born on May 5th 1875, who produced over a thousand paintings and drawings in what was a relatively short life, he lived until August 2nd 1917 dying at just 42 years old.

Stairs, Hotel San Marco Palace, Venice.

Whilst in Venice I stayed at the San Marco Palace Hotel, this post is not a review of the hotel, it is to show 2 pictures I took of the staircase at the hotel which was absolutely fantastic. Like most things in Venice it appeared to have been marble (It looked it to me but I have no idea) and formed a fantastic centre piece to the part of the hotel we were staying in. As I have already said this is not a review but I was very happy with the hotel, it was clean and the staff were always helpful and pleasant. I would happily recommend it as a place to stay. 

The pictures were taken using my Sony Experia phone. They can be seen without tags and un-watermarked only on Clickasnap via the links below the pictures.



We were on the fifth floor which was 100 steps from the bottom, there is a lift alongside the staircase.

You can follow me on Facebook, Flickr, Pinterest, Tumblr and Twitter via the links in the sidebar, and you can follow me on YouTube where I have a number of short clips to view, and on Clickasnap where I have over 900 pictures to view or buy.

Take off from Manchester Airport

Take off from Manchester Airport is a short video showing the take off from inside the plane near the wing of a recent flight we took from Manchester to Marco Polo Airport, Venice, Italy. The clip shows the planes run from the end of the runway until levelling off in the sky. I had to ask my wife to film it because I don not like flying and I don't like heights either,

It was filmed on the 29th October 2018 using a Nikon d3300 SLR camera.

It is taken from my YouTube account were I show slideshows of my images or short driving clips, etc.

You can follow me on Facebook, Flickr, Pinterest, Tumblr and Twitter via the links in the sidebar. You can also follow me on YouTube, where I currently have over 80 short clips and Clickasnap. which features over 700 of my pictures to view or buy.

Flying, Pictures and Videos from Above

Recently I took a short trip to Venice, Italy flying from Manchester Airport. It's fair to say that flying is something I do not enjoy, I can't quite get my head around the fact that this great lumbering mass somehow manages to float through the air. I also do not like heights so I spend most of the trips staring at the seat in front trying my best to ignore the view, always being told by my wife I don't know what I am missing. On this occasion I asked her to film parts of the flight and take a couple of pictures which can be seen below. The best quality versions of the images can be seen on Clickasnap via the links below each picture.

They were taken using a Nikon d3300 SLR camera on Monday 29th October 2018.




I'll post the videos of the flight in separate post's.
