The CC Trig Point bagger thread, now incorporating other interesting geographs

Slightly worrying..
We have the keys for one of the 20+ Grade 1 listed buildings in Wakefield, in our possession at the moment:wacko:

I have to go in, this morning, collect something, & take the keys back
(wife signed for them, I have to sign them back in, but they know it'll be me returning them)
Obviously, a camera will be coming with me^_^

I've been in the Crypt before, but wanted to go up the tower
I wasn't moving the step-ladder though

It's a very narrow stairs, not much over shoulder width

Sunday 19th

Called, on the way to work
The building's been in 'our' possession for as long as I've known
I first knew it as the Nurses Home, where student nurses could live, who were training away from home

Nowadays, it's a mixture of offices, & on-call rooms for Doctors (some who are actually on-call, & for Locums, who may have come a long way for a couple of shifts)
Upstairs houses all of the paintings, & the model railway, that were at Clayton Hospital, if any readers know that building?

Not the best of images, as they were taken with my iPhone

Interesting little metal discs, approximately 1" in diameter, hammered into the stonework, in Moulton village. It's on No. 17, so it's not the house number.

Another local BM, on Wellingborough Road, Hamtun. Not sure if the brickie or chiselled fell out, but the top bar is several bricks & courses away 🤔

Possibly.. I don't know if they actually have lighting in this part of the village,though.
