    Lunchtime for the birds on the Exe - a bit of a frenzy after yesterday's incessant snow here.

    Apologies, second one of the day, but I enjoyed some chilled beer tonight at one of the country's best pubs. Fortunately it's just a five-minute ride from home.

    Are they all your empties, @briantrumpet? Ps love your photos, keep them coming.

    Yes, empties, but it wasn't me who drank their contents. I merely helped out a little with another barrel tonight.

    In case you're wondering, it's The Bridge Inn at Topsham. Well worth a visit.

    If I'm ever down that part of the world, will be sure to give it a try. Cheers!

    Was curious about the "insurgent country" singer playing there. That is a musical genre that has passed me by....

    Occasionally locals Steve Knightley and Phil Beer (aka Show Of Hands) do a gig here... rather amusing, as they can pack the Royal Albert Hall when they choose to play in London.

  11. Out & about today, just 'pottering' really
    'Caleb Crowthers Almhouses'
    George Street

    Built for (chosen) poor who worshipped here;


    There's another Crowthers Almshouses in Ackworth, but attributed to a Mary
    I have no idea if any family connection?

    'Chantry Chapel'
    (officially; Saint Mary On The Bridge)
    One of only 4 remaining Bridge Chapels in the country

    DSCF4547.JPG DSCF4550.JPG DSCF4551.JPG

    I first heard them on the 'Radcliffe & Maconie Show', when they guested during Mark & Stuarts 'Jurassic Coast Walk' (a mixture of live & recorded broadcast)

    EDIT @ 14:54
    I've just checked my old photo-files, & the Ackworth Almshouses are 'Lowthers', not 'Crowthers'
    Easy mistake...............

    More Topsham...

  13. Just a local 'potter' again, today
    Out on the CGR, as I knew I'd be venturing onto tow-paths

    After heading out of town, I utilised a very short section of the 'Wakefield Wheel', from Station Road, to Altofts Hall Road, by heading in a northerly direction here;
    Once in Altofts, it was past St Marys Church (where we got married) & a right turn, down Foxholes Lane to the Aire & Calder Navigation Canal

    Towpath/Birkwood Lock access road
    Looking in opposite direction;

    Birkwood Lock

    A substantial stone-constructed culvert that runs under Canal, adjacent to the Birkwood Road bridge, over the Canal
    Under this parapet;

    Birkwood Road Bridge
    My commute-route to work crosses it

    A marker stone by the bridge
    I'm not sure what the '29' signifies

    The two Aquaducts
    The bow-bridge is the older, & dates to 1839
    Grade 1 listing too

    Out on the roadie, first springlike day for a while, still a nasty old wind but lovely to see blue skies and mostly unbroken sunshine.

    BT's Morborne Hill radio mast (the concrete one) that's a separate lattice tower behind it. (Cambridgeshire).

    Same ride as tower photo above, along the way I met Mike Dooley out near Lutton and The Giddings (Cambs), rode alongside and had a chat, found he was cycling from Middlesbrough to Australia!

    He has a Facebook page for anyone interested in his progress.
