    From a recent ride, took a bridleway through a deserted farm near Jodrell Bank and saw this. It's near a sand quarry, which I had to pass through (hence the muddy wheel).

    View of the deserted farm. Love places like this, I always have a root through the outbuildings (in the hope of finding a rare and priceless Bugatti or Vincent Black Shadow).

    And a Edward VII post box near my dentist.

    It has no back to it, therefore no place for letters.

    No contributions from me, recently ,as I've not been out and about at the right time or the right place, but on yesterday's walk, whilst my car was passing its MOT, I went for a 3 mile walk around the town.

    DSC_0807.JPG

    First find was on the side of the Super Sausage café (Full Monty breakfast, £5.25)

    Then, a BM I've been looking for every time I pass by, on the old Gasworks building. Someone else has kinda chalked in the missing bit as only the top bar is discernable.

    Finally one I posted ages ago, but I was walking past it anyway, a decent BM on the old cattle market gate lodge's (now in Morrisons carpark.

    I knew there was a BM on Hill Farm, Mears Ashby, but couldn't find it until the shrubbery was hacked back during redevelopment.

    Has to be the lowest TP I've bagged (or maybe not). I've passed many a time but field is normally sodden and the big bull wasn't around although by the time I got back to the bike, he was giving it bell tinkle (and looking at me)
