George, it's all wonderful - I can't thank you enough for the efforts you've taken. Just to see these has brought memories flooding back - not just for me, but readers of the blog, too.
That was mine, you muppet ;0)
Nice pic, George. Not forgetting the Autocraft, Raden Engineering and Watney plant hire periods in the 70s-80s.

This house was my Nan and granddads house. In my eyes this house is a monstrosity, the old cottage was hand built, this looks like it was bought from a catalog. Where is the grass? the lovely old cherry tree, the ponds and the pool so carefully tended to for years by my grandparents?? All gone in the aid of making a fast profit. I'm sorry Bob but i will forever disagree with your lovingly restored title for this picture. more like heartlessly ruined.
I was the Junior Booking Clerk on the Station for 6 months in 1956. I was useless at the job but I find it upsetting and frustrating that the station has closed and the line is gone.
Car Park? Sorry, Haven't a clue, but the sign does say.
If you're out of hours, do what the birders do and park on Pool Road on the slope of the bridge, or against the barrier. Plenty of space.
Fairly sure the exit is always enabled, anyway.
Spotted this take in your gallery that I like must try to visit in the spring.L/1.
Super photo, I've never been to this place but its now on my list. Thank you for such a nice photo.
Roly poly fish heads. Fish heads, fish heads, eat them up yum.
