A walk around Newmillerdam

It’s just a few miles from where we’ve lived for 30 years but I have never visited before. I’ve passed by many times and often thought the water in the dam looked higher than the road. This week all that changed and we had a stroll around the dam. Not a long walk but pleasant considering how close we were to Wakefield City Centre.

Friday’s weather was most peculiar, turning out to be the warmest day of the month (24.8°C), very muggy though with not much sunshine. There were plenty of dark clouds about all day with the ever present threat of a thunderstorm. It was windy all day too which seemed odd given how muggy the day felt. Just to finish off the day it rained on and off from 18:00.

It seemed very cloudy all day although my weather station calculated that we had 4 hours of sunshine.
