Further East from my last photo, between Sandend and Portsoy, is this cove where our school used to go for scout camp ('69, '70 and '71 were the years I went).

Another village around Cambridge (I can't remember which one).

An 18th century organ sited within the Chiesa di San Giovanni del Toro, the Church of Saint John of the Bull, in Ravello, Italy.

Despite its looks, it still works (perfectly)!

Thanks Creedy, I cover new places every time I go out as recorded on my personal internet map.

For some strange reason we British have suddenly started giving names to storms... This must be a very, very recent thing?

The vessels in this picture are all currently berthed in the town of Brixham, not too far from where I live. The smaller of those, Brixham trawlers, are based there permanently and are used to transport visitors to the English Riviera on the popular, if short, trips around the bay under sail. The large vessel in the centre is 'Tres Hombres' which came into Brixham last week for emergency repairs and which has, fortuitously, avoided the worst of 'Storm Brian'. The 'Tres Hombres' is unique as the world's only remaining rigged cargo ship with no mechanical means of propulsion whatsoever.

Over the last few days there have been numerous ships, of all sizes, taking anchor in the relative shelter of the bay until Brian has passed.

What a difference a week makes... Here in Torbay this morning the temperature is barely going to creep above twelve degrees; this time last week it was already in the low twenties near Naples.

This is the medieval piazzetta and Church of the Holy Annunciation in the hamlet of Minuta, one of six that together compose the commune of Scala, the oldest of the towns on the Sorrentine Peninsula and home of the Blessed Gerardo Sasso, the founder of the military Order of Saint John of Jerusalem, the Knights Hospitaller - the eight pointed cross that was the symbol of the order can be found everywhere in the Scala area.

If it wasn't for the few (scarcely) noticeable notice boards dotted around the piazzetta and the telephone cables running above it, this scene has barely changed in over one thousand years. It is a beautiful part of the world.

Tottenham Hale Retail Park, built long since on the old route to my grandparents until 1975.

The old GEC estate in Wembley. They moved out about 20 years ago and replaced with numerous other companies.

It's been a while since I posted a path as well. This one in Temple Fortune was the first time I'd found it.

Amazing snaps, sisterseagull I'd love to go for a trip on a sailing ship. I like your brief descriptions too.

Satguru, what is the Temple Fortune? A church of some kind, or a suburb?

Temple Fortune was a farm in Golders Green with connections to the Knights Templars. History I worked there for five years and have always lived nearby.

A sign in Hertfordshire I just discovered issued 23rd October 1899, and barely different (besides all the legal wording) from the official versions from 1933-64.

A nice row of shops in Hornchurch about 15 miles east of here

Many of the images that I post in these threads feature the area in which I am currently resident; Torbay and its environs known as the English Riviera.

This, however, is a panoramic view of the area in which I was born and raised.

In the distance is the island of Portland, famed across the world for the superb quality of the stone from which many prestigious buildings have been constructed with.

The long slender bar is Chesil Beach, an 18 mile long shingle barrier beach that stretches in a north=westerly direction from Portland to the small town of Bridport and which forms a part of the Jurassic Coast.

The area of water behind Chesil Beach is the tidal lagoon known as the Fleet (often referred to incorrectly as Moonfleet) which is the setting for the novel and feature film based on the book 'Moonfleet' by J. Meade Falkner.

Finally, the small square building towards the centre of the scene is Saint Catherine's Chapel, a 14th century pilgrimage site that overlooks the beautiful little village of Abbotsbury with its narrow streets and thatched cottages and longhouses.
