This is now one of the rarest old road signs in Britain as the X became an + in the early 50s, and then abolished and replaced since 1964. This was the first of nine old signs I mopped up today in and around Somerset.

This Bank Holiday weekend was the hottest recorded in the UK since records began; It was hotter here in the the south of England than it was in Athens, Barcelona and even Florida. The town of Paignton again hosted the 'BMAD' (Bikers Make A Difference) festival, a charity bash that attracts bikers to the town from all over the UK and often from across Europe. This image was taken at the accompanying fun-fair...

It's a shame that stills don't come with a soundtrack; the screams of terror coming from the punters had to be heard to be believed!

I have two of those near me at the moment. You won't see me on it.

If anyone is familiar with Henlys Corner London NW11 they will know where this is.

Inside of the 2nd of the 7 Concords British Airways bought. Now at National Museum of Flight in East Lothian. That is a drinks trolley behind a transparent screen half way down the plane.

One of two banks on opposite sides of the corner in Temple Fortune which have just closed. Mine closed a few years ago a few doors down.

Much to the annoyance of my 'other 'alf', I'm beginning to get back into this...Do I go for a KTM, a Yamaha or a Husky?

This one is from a local championship meeting that took place at Little Silver MX just outside Exeter earlier today.

Having tried both a Yamaha and KTM I'd pick a KTM above most others. I was very happy with it for a week or so for my motorcycle lessons.

The waiting room at North Weald Station, once the extreme end of the Underground line, now used occasionally for steam trains.

No, It was built by the Vaux family in the mid 13th century. Then in 1515 it passed by marriage to the Ruthven family. It was William Ruthven who kidnapped the future King James 1 in 1582 (Although he was held at Huntingtower rather than Dirleton). It's life came to an end in 1651, after Cromwell's army damaged it with cannons during its capture.

This is of Dirleton Castle's gardens. Dirleton used have the longest herbaceous border in the world, until Kew Gardens built one longer in 2015.

This is the inner courtyard of Linlithgow Palace, on the other side of Edinburgh in West Lothian. Mary Queen of Scots was born here, probably in the part the palace I took the photo from. Fire gutted it in 1746.

We were at the NC beach last month and saw this barge (it sure looks like a ship to me, but no matter) making its way along the Inland Waterway.

This is Hailes Castle in East Lothian on the bank of the River Tyne. In 1667 it was owned by James Hepburn, 4th Earl of Bothwell. He spent one night in Hailes Castle with Mary Queen of Scots on the 5th May, two days before he devored his wife. Mary and James were married on May 15th. A month later, James was forced to flee, he never saw Mary again, and all his lands were taken away from him. The castle was dismantled by Cromwell.

Royal Wedding day so ...
This is Markle Castle. Not much left of this one, like the last one it was owned by the Hepburn family (ten minutes drive from Hailes). Put to the torch twice, had it's main entrance removed so the English couldn't use it, and the rest of it being slighted during Cromwells time. The car park is for Markle fisheries, you can see one of the three ponds in the picture.

The Westbury white horse, cut into the chalk. We used to see it on the way to Devon on the train on our summer holidays.
