Still standing after all these years





























It looks like a monument, a standing stone erected for some mysterious ritual or commemoration. But no, this is simply an old field-gatepost. I came across it, probably a relic from a time when this land was farmed, still staunchly upright at the edge of a cricket pitch, bordering a large housing estate in Bradford. In the distance on the right you can see a much more modern necessity - one of the city's water treatment works at Chellow Heights, which recycles dirty water and makes it clean and fit to drink.
