A passer-by yesterday expressed delight about the look of the tower and asked me what I had used to clean the stonework. Last summer I experimented with a pressure washer on parts of this, the west face of the tower. More urgent jobs intervened and the pressure washing ceased. You can hardly tell which bits were washed and which were not. Yet the stonework as a whole looks as though it has been cleaned as this picture taken in today's afternoon sunshine shows. It could be newly built, not built in 1876!

A tribute to the original builders - and to the low levels of atmospheric pollution in the Yorkshire Dales.
