Hi Nigel,

First we need to get the gaps in Offa's Dyke repaired. :)

In due course the tree will be in full leaf and the field will be bright yellow with rapeseed. Let's hope this whole dreadful business is no more than a memory by then.

Two months on, and yes it's in full leaf:



But no, this dreadful disease is far from over, and if anything more serious than we realised then.

The lockdown has sent a lot of new folks walking in the countryside -- many farmers are not happy to see crops being damaged and dogs off the lead around livestock. Hopefully the eased restrictions will send folks back to the usual beauty spots instead of their local fields. Here the farmer has carefully marked the line of public footpaths across his fields. As he is legally required to do, but most years doesn't bother just for me and a handful of others.

And no, not rapeseed this year. Rob 1, Martin 0. :)

cheers,

Hi Martin,

Pity I can't predict the lottery numbers too :( Did you take note of this years crop ?

Some farmers aren't too good at marking the footpaths across their fields, mind you in normal years many paths see little walking traffic. Failing a clear path being visible you can often get a clue as to the course of the path by looking out for stiles or gates on the other side of a field. A tree in the middle of a field often makes a good point to head to as they were often allowed to grow where walls used to exist that marked older and smaller fields.

If the field is fully sown and no path is visible I would usually take a route round the edges - on the high side of the field if in hilly ground  - less chance of churning up the mud and getting dirty boots.

Rob

A blustery walk yesterday evening.





No doubt the fly tippers were thinking "this will add a bit of foreground interest to a photo". I've seen a lot of this lately. :(

But thankfully none looking back from there:

Another angler for Rob. :)

Neen Savage ford and weir, yesterday. SO 67490 77521





His eyes were on the fish, but mine were on the bench -- somewhere to eat my lunch (cheese & tomato sandwich, hard-boiled eggs).

Thanks Martin.

Hope he caught something. There have been a few incidents at that ford ( and many other ones ). One poor lady was washed away and killed in her car a few years back. The road surface across fords is often covered with algae and doesn't let your tyres grip to prevent the car sliding sideways.

There is quite a pull on the water even when the level isn't very high on the gauge, see here

Hi Martin,

Thanks for the mill details. It was used for corn according to the 1883/4 map ( when it was also not in use ). Did you take any more photos of the building. Get in close next time you pass by and find out what is under the chimney stack :? Are the bricks just stretcher bond ? I can't see any headers on the uploaded photo.

Rob
Hi Rob,

The next time I passed by was yesterday. Not much chance of getting in close or counting bricks:



I don't mind climbing a fence, but I didn't have an axe with me. :)  Amazing to see the change in just 4 years. Of course being in full leaf compared with the previous winter pic makes a big difference. I will see if I can remember to pass by again next winter.

cheers,

Hi Martin,
Thanks for remembering my request on the old barn. It has changed but as you say the season has at lot to do with it. It has gained a new fence since too. I guess the 'danger' warning is in case the roof ( or the building ) falls down although it wouldn't have stopped me as a kid going to explore :D

A drizzly day today, but yesterday evening was nice. My walk took me past a fishery (Rob will be pleased). All manicured lakes and lawns. But not a soul about, so presumably still in lockdown.




And past a cottage garden, where they believe you can't have too many watering cans.




Martin.

Good pics, Martin. Been mainly wet here since yesterday, but Monday was a dry, pleasant day. Celebrated Covid restrictions being eased in Wales by visiting my favourite haunt on the west side of Pumlumon for a bit of a walk. Legs badly out of practice on uphill! Here's a pic:



Or rather there isn't! It hangs on Uploading please wait. Tried it last night and it did the same.

That just seems to be how it works these day - I find that if I just close the "uploading" window the picture is there in the gallery waiting for you.  It's presumably not how it should work!!

Hi Paul, Nigel,

No it isn't. Several users have been reporting this, but it was working fine here in Firefox. Until the latest Firefox update a couple of days ago. Now it's not working here either. :(

I will look into it. However, several weeks ago I did put a note below the button on the editor. Did anyone read it:



p.s. Nigel, I have inserted your pic. Great lighting. Now that the Wales restrictions have been removed, I'm just waiting for a nice day to get back in the hills. :)

cheers,

Martin.

Hi Martin,

Yes, always nice to see a fishery, thanks.

I have seen the upload 'hanging' issue a couple of times. I am still on Firefox 60.0.1 though so not too sure if a recent update may be the issue. My system reports that the latest is 72.0.2

Hi Martin,

Just tried the normal 'Upload new image for insertion' method and it doesn't work on my Firefox version, just hangs, however it does put the image into the Image Gallery.

Here is the same upload putting it in the Gallery first and then inserting existing image.

Thanks Rob, Paul, Nigel.

I made some changes. The upload button is now working again, here at least (in Firefox):



This forum runs on 20-year-old code. It has always been rock-solid, so I've stuck with it. But the browsers keep changing so much that it can't last forever (a bit like Templot). :(

Sooner or later I am going to have to bite the bullet and attempt to migrate 20 years worth of database content into a new forum software. But not today. :)

cheers,

Martin.

I doubt many of us look like we did 35 years ago. I certainly find it harder to get out of bed in the mornings :(

Rob Manchester wrote: Just wondering why a picture of you had been taken next to the mill. Was it something to do with your work at the time ?Hi Rob,

Yes, we made a lot of precision tooling on that machine. Including turbine blades and other aerospace components for Rolls-Royce, also some medical hip-replacement implants.

We converted it to CNC control ourselves. We chose the best of the mills, replaced the table screws with zero-backlash ballscrews and fitted stepper motors. We also added a Z-drive to the head quill to create a full 3-axis machine. In effect 4-axis, because we retained the manual lift screw on the knee which made it much easier to set up.

I built the drive electronics and wrote the control software to drive the 3 steppers in sync. And the 3-D stuff for the cutters -- I tended to write a one-off program for each job we got in, rather than create a general do-anything control program.  But it was slow -- the processor was running at a mere 1MHz (as they did in those days), and the maximum feed rate was only 5"/min. Which didn't matter for the precision toolmaking work we were doing, but would have been hopeless as a production machine.

It was in full-time daily use for about 15 years. It's currently installed on a farm in Shropshire, but hasn't been used for several years. About 10 years after the photo was taken, it made most of the tooling for the 7mm Hunslet loco kit:



I don't know why Len took the photo. Probably no special reason -- he was a wedding photographer at weekends and often had his cameras with him. What I do know is that it was taken on a Monday morning -- our white coats didn't look like that by Friday. :)

cheers,

Martin.

Hi Martin,

Thank you, very interesting. The Hunselet can still hold it's own even after 25 years. The Dapol/Heljan RTR stuff is bringing a lot of people into 7mm scale who wouldn't maybe want or be able to build for kits/scratch build - but some of the design compromises are a bit of a let down.

Hi Martin,

I can remember a number of car dealerships from the past ( no pictures though :( ).

Sir William Rootes did make the odd mistake though - like quoting that the VW Beetle wasn't suitable as a mass market car ! Long live the Hillman Imp.

We should be thankful that the British motor manufactures didn't take on the VW Factory. They would have "improved" it and the car wouldn't have lasted 5 years.

Indeed!  Shudder to think of British cars which had something of their own being replaced by monstrosities. Morris Minor being replaced by the Marina, for example.

Nigel,
My first car was a Morris Marina :). It was 4 years old when I got it and it was rusting rapidly from both ends and the sills. But many happy weekends were spent replacing about 60% of the car and it went like a dream. It was the 2 door Super De-luxe model so it looked real cool with the vinyl roof. I did nearly 90,000 miles in it during the next 5 years before upgrading to a 1.8TC version with the MG B-series engine. The oil was all sludged up so I decided to put some flushing oil in and blast down the motorway - bad idea - the sump was nearly empty when I got home and the engine was blowing smoke from every gasket.

I loved ( not ) the torsion bar/lever arm shocks at the front and the cart springs at the rear - instant sea-sickness on a cobbled road :(

Oh for the memories.....

Rob

I knew somebody who had a Marina and kept a couple of concrete blocks in the boot. She said it improved comfort and handling no end!
