Looking towards Walkington police horse stables, from Mill Lane, Bishop Burton. Also note about " fracking" nearby.

Plein air oil on board 12 x 10"
AT LAST ... some decent weather, still coolish for the time of year however the wind has dropped. The wind from the east / north east over the last couple of weeks has made everyone feel bitterly cold. So it is nice to feel as if spring is nearly here. Driving along the lanes near Bishop Burton one can still see many snowdrops in the grass verges which, I think, are lasting longer than usual due to the poor March and now, April weather. I saw some signs at road junctions indicating the location of the controversial " fracking " drill site. I wanted to see it, to possibly paint a view or two of the countryside nearby. The site became apparent from a distance, two crane derricks like silhouettes appeared against a pale sky. The site is higher than I had thought it would be - up on the wolds, on the Walkington Heads road to Newbald about a mile from Walkington. At present, the impact is physically minimal, let us hope it remains so.
