We have been staying very local for our walks lately - partly to do with the lack of daylight hours, which are now slowly lengthening albeit by a minute or so each day!
On Saturday, we walked along the canal at Elsecar. I noticed in local news last year that funding has been found to restore the old Newcomen Engine that used to pump water out of the coal mine here. It is very special as it is the only one left that remains in its original location. It will be great if they get it running again.
