Ne’er Cast A Clout……

CLICK ON IMAGES TO ENLARGE. REPEAT IF REQUIRED. Today was rainy enough to warrant another trip back to the Streets of London colour slides from May 2005. Hadrian Mews, N7 is a gated street in Holloway, off Islington’s Roman Way. It probably pays to be security conscious here. Epping Place and Granary Square, N1 areContinue reading “Ne’er Cast A Clout……”

Forest Pursuits

CLICK ON IMAGES TO ENLARGE. THOSE IN GROUPS ACCESS GALLERIES THAT CAN BE VIEWED FULL SIZE. We spent the morning driving around the forest before lunching at Holmsley Old Station Tea Rooms. The strong early morning sun forced its way through the rising mist, and eventually dominated the blue skies, warming the landscape, and eventuallyContinue reading “Forest Pursuits”

Kersall Telephone Box

This morning I let my feet do the directing.  They took me into Morden Park and along the wooded paths, having approached them along the cleared route between the backs of Hillcross Avenue gardens and the park itself.  An untended fenced section peters out into pleasant woodland in which I was confronted by a RottweilerContinue reading “Kersall Telephone Box”

Banknotes And Phonecards

Today was a Mordred (posted 12th. July) day. I took my usual route to SW1 for coffee with Carol.  A flattened frog, having attempted to cross the sodden footpath in Morden Hall Park, hadn’t made it.  As I slalomed around the pools, a cyclist who had crept up behind me deftly avoided me as IContinue reading “Banknotes And Phonecards”
