It was sunny but quite chilly when we set off for a walk today. We went in the car to South Ferriby, it's on the banks of the Humber, before you get to Barton and the bridge. Best keep the little fella warm.
We took a narrow tarmac road up the hill towards the quarry. This is where the conveyor belt crosses the road as it transports the crushed chalk from the quarry to the cement works down below.
This is the top of the belt as it comes out of the shed at the quarry.
In the distance you can see Reeds Island in the middle of the Humber. This was occupied once, but no one has lived there for many years. I worked at the cement works as a bulk powder tanker driver for seven years. It was owned by Rugby Cement at that time. Now it is owned by Cemex.
Rocky has found a bench.Lucky he had his coat on, we got caught in a snow shower.
