Filming 'Happy Valley' in Hebden Bridge

Nearly 2 hours of Robert Plant and Alison Krauss live! The quality is more than ok, i think.......

I went into Hebden Bridge today for a haircut. 

While there, I took these photos of them filming the new series of " Happy Valley". I'm a bit snooty about the show tbh. But it was interesting to look at how they go about it.

 I was more excited by the fact that half an hour before I took this photo , I had been in the 'Country Stores' and the lass behind the counter was all in a tiz because Robert Plant ( Led Zeppelin ) had just been in to buy a Steak & Ale Pie 

. He had played in Halifax last night , and was driving back over the tops , taking 'the scenic route' 

I always imagine him a veggie. Shows how much I know........ I mean , in retrospect, I might have seen a Plantish figure stood alone eating, near some busker. But everybody in Heden Bridge looks like that! How was I supposed to know....?

Audio is Robert Plant and Alison Krauss Louisville, KY April 18, 2008 


And the riot squad they're restless, they need somewhere to go..........

"some travel restrictions"

Tis a shame,this just arrived this morning. We were quite looking forward to it. Oddly, Sea Powers big tour ( due in Manchester this week ) has cancelled some dates due to Covid. It seems the Gods are restless.....

He said, there's a body I'm tryin' to find....


My skin is getting older . 

Loads of bruises this week on both my arms.

 It seems this happens as your skin gets old . Ironically , most of my 'wounds' I can place from swimming ( brushing my arms on the swimming pool' lockers: brushing my arms against the lane ropes ;etc etc)

Hey -hoy! :)

Live at the War Memorial Auditorium, Plymouth, MA; October 30, 1975
