Early June and we finally get a decent run of sun and warm weather, enough for me to comment on the luxury of air having conditioned buildings to escape the midday heat from. My eyes take time to adjust inside and The Ridings which felt different today, transformed by the amount of light flooding through the roof and reflecting of the glass and chrome surfaces inside.
Google Maps shows just how big a land area The Ridings inhabits and It got me thinking about the various levels within and the tower blocks that surround them. It is a walled city within a city type of scale that driving or even walking about at street level you miss, because it's happening above eye level. Sandal Castle was clearly identifiable on the horizon, as was the amount of green spaces around Wakefield.
