I went to Bristol by train recently and was surprised to find this bright pink Gumdrop near the ticket barrier. I whipped out my camera to take this photo, much to the amusement of the ticket attendant.
“That’s new, how long has it been here?” I asked her.
“Oh about a year”, she replied. So much for my powers of observation then.
“Not only that”, chimed in a fellow passenger, “it’s made out of recycled chewing gum.”
I looked more closely and by gum, she’s right…
A suitable post for Friday the 13th?
Here’s a selection of benches from Chippenham station for us to view whilst I try and decide which one (if any) was the bench Old Maudy used to sit on.
I devised a ghost walk for Pewsham Belles WI this week and the railway station was our initial meeting place plus the spot for our first ghostly tale.
More on Old Maudy to come after I’ve distilled our walk and the tales we told into an interactive map.
I now have this song on the brain 😉
They really do take
weasels* ferrets for a walk up north! This was a surprise find when we visited the Tanfield Railway recently.
Later I met the owner at Causey Arch, a couple of miles from where this photo was taken. The ferret’s name is Peace.
* = Thanks to commenter rjbuxton for the correction. It seems my brain went on holiday for a while 😉
Hugh Bonneville plays the part of Brunel. I can feel another London project coming on…
