I took the train into Sheffield a while back and was impressed by the station redevelopment of a few years ago. It has really bedded into the townscape now and is well used and obviously well-loved too.
I think Sheffield is much the better for having a station which is no longer dark, murky and unattractive. This tells a much nicer story of the city to its visitors. You are greeted by a sweeping wall of stainless steel with running water pouring down one side (the message being, it doesn't rain ALL the time??) .
Opposite the wall is a series of stone steps and more running water, great for sitting out on.
And a lovely fountain. Actually the whole walking route from the city centre to the station is pretty good but I didn't start taking photos until I got to the station so can't show you that bit - another time.
But you know me - my true love is the countryside. Later that evening I took the dogs out for a sunny evening walk in the big field at the end of our road. Happy sunny cows littered our path, scratching themselves on stones and ignoring Minty's frenzied barks.
And here a random pic I found on my phone....what do you suppose the horse was buying in the shop?? Or maybe just sheltering from the rain?
