What a beautiful day it has been — blue skies and not a cloud in sight — perfect for a drive over the Pennines to take my daughter home to Sheffield after a weekend chez mum and dad.
The pleasant run ground to halt when we came up against road works at the top of Eccleshall Road and I was studying the windows of the local shops, including the chippie. It was then that my daughter dropped her bombshell — that there are no pudding, chips, peas and gravy to be had in Sheffield.
That’s most certainly an exaggeration as I’m sure that there is a chippie somewhere in the city that there is a provendor of this great Northern meal, it’s just that my daughter hasn’t found one yet. And she is getting withdrawal symptoms.
Anyway, I dropped her off and escaped back to civilisation and I had time to take advantage of the good weather to take this photo of the viaduct at Reddish Vale which carries the Hope Valley train line across the River Tame.
