I have been called an 'artist' many times Ray, but it's usually when I had a pint glass in my hand, so I'm not too sure what the true meaning was -? But thank you for your appreciation ;-)a

I was once asked to turn a wheel hub for a Suffolk wagon. That was quite interesting, but I didn't see the finished wagon as we moved to France before it was finished.

Clever lad John indeed.
I love the menu stands, clever and well made.
Now! I hope that wagon wheel didn't turn out like the illustration :-P
Bit like the flat tyre, that's only flat on the bottom  :p

Hi Gawain. I cannot surpass your excellent and well proportioned picture but, interestingly, I have a similar shot from a slightly different angle. I should have positioned myself better.:-)

Interesting Wiki Link:- https://en.wikipedia.o​rg/wiki/William_Brodie (external link)

I've got one from almost the same angle. You got the plaques that I missed. Thanks for posting those.

Interesting indeed Ray
They certainly came a long way in development and acceptance.
Evil things, just like the first trains :-P
And this was interesting and a novel feature that prevented the wheels from falling off while the coach was in motion
Wow! The mind boggles. I'd have thought that would have been rectified the first escape off the axle :rolleyes:
No mention of highway robbers. Too genteel :-)
Interesting how buildings sprung up to service such. We had them here, one classic Halfway House Antill Ponds, now destroyed (external link)

Hi Richard, there is a lot to Wade through in these links, but I think that some of those early speeds are about brisk walking speed and the time that it took in those days to get somewhere is inconceivable by today’s standards. My instant reaction to the wheels falling off the axles is the same as yours. However, I didn’t see what the invention was to fix the problem.

One of my treasured old pictures is of my grandfather on a group outing with his local pub c1905 and they are all sitting in a charabanc outside the pub.:-)

Sounds like you got my meaning John.:-) I was wondering if you kept a bit of that old wheel hub, John, it looks to my eye like you have stumbled on Constable's original Hay Wain as portrayed in his famous painting.:-)

Gawain, do you have the date of that picture, there seems so many similarities, like the menu boards on the pavement(sidewalk) and the menus pasted in the windows - and also the colour quality of the pictures.
Assuming my camera data was correct my pic was taken 13th July 2010.

Dave, Were the men not talking to the women - or is that normal in your part of the world?-?
Were the drinks free?:-)

What a magnificent building.
That thatched roof is a work of art.
I saw mention of a fire there too :-(

Interesting reading the news item re restoration Focused on pub favourites, the menu will include Lancashire specialities such as coddled eggs, parkin, hot pot and pie barms, made following the secret recipes of the Lockes’ granny and using locally sourced ingredients.
Much of that sounds familiar but pie barms, new one on me

That area has interesting and colourful history from what I've been reading :-P

The hay wayne in the painting isn't the same type. Note the side slats, they are different

This is that part of the river as of 4 years ago

It's easy to see just why he loved that part of England. We had some lovely visits there and keep going back to Bury St Edmonds.

My ambition for a good while is to grow old disgracefully. So far my wife tells me that I am doing really well!

No way Richard. If you look very carefully you will find that it's flat all the was round, apart from the fact that the flat bit is round and not flat at all -?

I really can see that you are a natural artist John - do you have time to paint one for me?

I have always been a bit like that Ray.

For instance, this afternoon I painted one of our garden tables in oil. Osmo decking oil to be precise 8-)

Does that count -?
