Aye. It long ago ceased to be the longest single span suspension bridge in the world, but it is still the longest in the world that can be cycled over. There's good cycling to be had either side of that bridge btw.

You'd be suprised... a lot of the time, the cycle lane either one side of the bridge or the other side is closed off. The access from the Hull side of the river is gained by going through the car park, and there are gates going to one side or t'other with one being locked 8/10 times I've been there (usually the eastern side being the one closed). Anywho, when going across I try not to look down whilst riding! The last time I went over there was a trip from York to Scunny, and I got to the other side of the Humber just as the sun was setting (about August time) so it made for a nice view.

Trig, is that Clipstone pithead?

I vaguely remember they were due to be torn down, though.

Is the gravestone the grave of Thomas Henry Morris, mentioned in this week's Cycleclips?

While folks are guessing some of the earlier ones, here's a fairly inconspicuous one from my patch.

Unless you know it, you might find it hard to identify, but there's an interesting (and somewhat gory) story behind it. That's a clue...

Well, I'll just say, Mrs P and I spent ages trying to find it...
