taken 9 months ago, near to Woodlesford, Leeds, Great Britain

Fleet Bridge oil depot - storage tanks
Fleet Bridge oil depot - storage tanks
Several tanks at this site, two large and at least three smaller ones. There was a fuel storage depot here from the Second World War, but the present facilities date from 1999. The site was certainly still served by oil barges until at least 2012 SE3728 : Tanker leaving the oil storage wharf and may still be.
Aire and Calder Navigation
The Aire and Calder Navigation consists of a number of discrete sections of canalised river, which enable boats of a reasonable size to reach Leeds. The original intention was to give Leeds a proper ship canal like Manchester's but that never happened.

The extant sections are 7.6km parallel to the river Aire between Knowsthorpe (Knostrop) and just below Woodlesford, 1.1km downstream of the confluence of the Aire and Calder at Castleford, and the longest section, c.30 km from Ferrybridge down to Goole Docks where it joins the Ouse downstream of its confluence with the Aire.
