Our house, in the middle of our street!

Posted on: January 8, 2009

Well it is, so there!

I love Google Maps!  I’ve already had a play around with this in the past, but hadn’t had a good look at our house in Honley.  Looking at it now I’ve realised that this photo was taken ages ago as the extension isn’t shown and that was built (by the previous occupants) in 2004!  So the photo must be at least 5 years old, which surprised me, I would have thought that Google would update more regularly than that, but I suppose the world is a big place!  Here’s the link if you want to have a look.

http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?f=q&hl=en&geocode=&q=hd9+6es&sll=53.800651,-4.064941&sspn=18.388688,37.617188&ie=UTF8&ll=53.597241,-1.800116&spn=0.001081,0.002296&t=h&z=19&iwloc=addr

I seem to have hit a bad time for viewing Google Moon, Mars etc. – I waited a while and nothing happened, but I will try again another time.  Also, Google Maps didn’t like me asking for directions from Huddersfield to Madrid, but did later allow me to ask how to get from Honley to Cheadle Hulme in Stockport (where my parents live).  Google Maps reckoned it would take roughly 52 minutes which is pretty accurate, snow and fog permitting.
