The viaduct at Arnside in Cumbria which crosses the River Kent. Arnside has its own tidal wave or bore which lasts up to two hours, and though it can be as low as a few centimetres it can be high as a metre. it is the leading edge of the incoming tide forced into a narrowing bay, against the flow of a river, which creates the tidal bore. When we were there it was hardly visible but can be dramatic in winter. Did you know we have tidal waves in the U.K.? #thetravelbunny

Grizedale Forest is one of my favourite places to visit. We went there so many times when I was younger on family holidays so it holds a lot of great memories. On this particular day there was a thunderstorm. The birds were singing, the thunder was crashing and the raining was dropping in the the streams. The smell of the forest was incredible and the light was an eerie grey/yellow colour. It was pretty cool to have been there during the storm.
Have you been to Grizedale? Did you see the sculptures? ———— - - - •

Non è una casetta da sogno, questa? Io mi ci trasferirei per tutta l'estate. Inutile dirvi che si trova in Inghilterra, il paese in cui ogni fantasia romantica può realizzarsi. E anche oggi ci svegliamo tra il sogno e le tante cose da realizzare ☀️ **************************************************

Ever since moving here I’ve loved looking across at this house and the way it stands out against the rolling hills at sunset. I finally decided to capture it and create a swipable panorama.

Hoad Monument (proper name: the Sir John Barrow Monument) is a 100 ft (30.5 m) tower at the top of Hoad Hill. It cannot be classed as a fully functioning lighthouse as it was never fitted with a light, it is also nowhere near the water.

Liverpool St George's Hall Pediment
Since its disappearance in the 1950s, many people have been calling for it to be returned to its rightful place overlooking St John's Road.
According to heritage manager Graham Boxer's response it "was not included in the restoration works, mainly due to the fact that it can't be located, however it is believed that due to the conditions in the basement of St George's Hall (where it once may have been stored) it no longer exists." The sculpted characters stood above the south enterance until August 1950, when large chunks of stone, some weighing around 50lb, fell more than 100ft to the ground below. Fortunately nobody was hurt and steeplejacks were called in from other work across the city to make the area safe.
However, shortly after the frieze damaged, the council's finance committee chairman, Alderman A Ernest Shennan, claimed it was unlikely to be replaced for other motives - aesthetic rather than fiscal. He concluded that the hall's designer, Harvey Lonsdale Elmes, had never intended the space to be filled. He personally inspected the finishings of the stonework and declared that, like the similar space on the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC, they were never meant to be hidden.
In the 1980s, a suggestion to recreate it in stone-faced, reinforced plastic was dismissed due to the "city's present economic climate" in times of recession.
But perhaps the most controversial reason for preventing a replacement came when political correctness foiled plans by a group of sculptors to recreate the frieze. Anti-racist groups claimed the black figure kneeling before Britannia symbolised the slave trade and felt Liverpool's black community would be offended by its recreation. John Haymes Hogg, one of the members of Merseyside Sculptors Guild states that the frieze actually represented the abolition of slavery, "The figure is on his knees is giving thanks to Britannia for his liberty because of the decision by Britain to abolish the horror of the slave trade." Sadly, many other people believe it is yet another example of institutional vandalism and was broken up.

Liverpool's Custom House
Built in 1839 Liverpool's Custom House housed a post office, dock office and offices for Customs and Excise.

On the night of 3rd/4th May 1941 the Custom House was hit by fire bombs that set the building ablaze. It suffered damage from the fire, losing its roof and most of its floors. The shell of the building however remained intact and its structure was in a strong condition.

In 1948 the City planners made the shocking decision to demolish the building. The disapproval of the local people counted for nothing and the Custom House was raised to the ground. This utter crazy action cost Liverpool one of its most famous buildings. By 1963 nothing had been built upon the site.

Sir Edwin Lutyens design for Liverpool's Catholic Cathdral

Intended to be the second-largest church in the world (after St Peter's Basilica) with the worlds largest dome.
Building began 5 June 1933, but in 1941, the restrictions of the Second World War raised the cost from £3 million to £27 million (£1.23 billion in 2016) which forced construction to stop. In 1956, work recommenced on the crypt, which was finished in 1958.
Thereafter, Lutyens' design for the Cathedral was considered too costly and was abandoned with only the crypt complete
