Long Description:
This lamp post is on a quite cul-de-sac that only leads to the tennis club.

At this point we're about 1/4 mile from the River Wharfe, which has flooded a number of times over the centuries.

Perhaps this not the best location for a tennis club.

The flood left a lot of silt on the 14 grass courts and 6 clay hard courts. As well as causing a lot of work for the ground staff, the silt affected the way the balls bounced off the grass surface.
