Wettest Drought on record, soon have the dryest wet winter! What would we do without Politicians?
Top Jersey Road, with the Moorings in the background, Library where the bus is?
Many thanks Jethro
Must admit Iam slipping it in here and there, hopefully creating more interest, I was also pleased to see that looking on Google today for some info, to find quite a few of my pics up at the top of Google search, so thanks for all your help over the time I have been on Panoramio
Kind Regards.... .....Gordon.......
He lived in the woods I think Peter - this 'ere guy lives in a field, by the side of the main road.
This ol' wooden house has weathered the years better than most do.
Best wishes - Jethro
I'm guessing gyro's are involved somewhere Pete. Forced seating is probably nothing more than the yellow jacket H&S brigade over egging it again.
I'm guessing it is so the Duke could view his pile a mile and a half down the road. If you expand the map, there is a sort of path/fire break through the trees to the manor house.
Jethro, Thanks to your endorsement of my picture I seemed to have attracted 343 visits to this image (so far). I'd like to know what deodorant you use?
You make some good points Peter and I have to say the jury is still out this end. I am thinking......
We seem to build houses deliberately to fall down without regular and expensive maintenance. If we built house the British way a whole swath of society would perish (carpenters, handymen, painters, roofers etc).
I would say that 95% of houses are combustible. So when we have our wildfires, we are left (for the most part) with ash and the odd chimney back.
Having said all that (in agreement with you) it seems that we can get away with a timber trestle bridge that still stands and looks good 110 years after it was built.
Course this could be just like Trigger's brush!
It's worth the trip Pete. Don't forget to take your oyster card.
