I’m always amazed at how some properties are just left abandoned and deteriorating for years on end, especially if they are in a fairly desirable location. This old house is in the centre of Whitchurch, close to the church and shops. Fancy a renovation project anyone?
This building has been the Police Station in Whitchurch for over 150 years, but is now for sale as a result of ‘reorganization’ – a euphemism for cuts in a service that has seen a reduction of over 22,000 officers over the last 10 years… Latest government promises are to reverse these cuts, but I’ll believe it when I see it.
… and lots of other colours too. My wife loves flowers, especially roses, so this jumbo bunch of multi-colored blooms looked perfect for our kitchen.
This is our closest railway station, at Whitchurch, Shropshire. To say it is quiet is an understatement- it gets maybe half a dozen trains a day stopping here, and in ten years of living around here, we’ve never used it…
So I didn’t really want to go out, but had some chores to do, and we needed food! I pass this barn quite often, and have photographed it in different weather conditions, but never as wet as this… It was always going to have to be a mono shot.
… what happened to the people I gave directions to. Very true! Sign outside a café at Grindley Brook, nr Whitchurch.
Yep, you got it – May Blossom, or Flowering Hawthorn. Seen as a confirmation that spring has arrived, it’s everywhere around here at the moment. Beautiful!
