Treading on thin ice, a crow doing what crows can do a long way from the shore. Unless you are a crow this type of tippy-toeing may not be a good idea. If you are a crow, then walking on ice is a possibility.

Rest for weary walkers was provided by this bench on the northern side of Spike Lake. Sadly, the bench was vandalised and is no longer there. It is easier to destroy than to build. The railway line to Hare Park Junction is visible in the background.

A reminder that this was once a slagheap. Things have changed since this photograph was taken. This is a view towards the south-west, across the central lake, most of Walton is to the left of the picture. This view shows Manor Estate and, beyond, is Sandal. The Trans Pennine Trail runs in a more or less straight line across the picture on the far bank of the lake. Woodyard Cottages are off to the right. The main line railway embankment is obscured by the line of trees running across the picture.
