T4 : Five Petrol Stations

Last weekend was a disappointment. The camera I had wanted to use wasn't really suitable, and I couldn't find a couple of the stations that I thought I should be able to. Further research has been done and it's another disappointment. There are currently only eleven petrol filling stations located within the Ribble Valley, and one of those I have a little niggle about - I don't recall ever seeing it, although granted it's not on a road I go down often. There was another that I've located on Google Street View, but can confirm that it's now been flattened and being replaced by housing. Whether it be ten or eleven though, it doesn't really matter as it's not quite up to the magic number of 26. I'll have to open up my area of exploration, and to be fair it shouldn't have to be by much to start getting some additional ones in the net. I'll just keep pushing the boundaries until I reach my total.

So, what is actually available? Within the Ribble Valley itself, it's:
Barrow : 1
Chatburn : 1
Clitheroe : 2
Dunsop Bridge : 1
Gisburn : 1
Langho : 1
Longridge : 2
Mellor Brook : 1
Osbaldeston : 1
Simonstone : 1

I've visited all of these over the last two weekends, except the one in Langho. I'll hit that one tomorrow and also go to some of those I visited with the MF camera. After that... it's back to pushing the boundaries. This is what I have so far with the Canon DSLR though.
