Time for another
I think it is time I wrote another Blog being as I have not written anything since June. Mind you things have not been easy as we have been getting some building work done round the house so my little trips have been curtailed to a certain extent. That is not to say I have stopped contributing just not quite so many. Up to when the work started I had 500+ in backlog to work with now Iím down to going out on a weekend to get a couple of hundred.
A lot of the photos I have taken are from round the areas local to where I live and work. I have been recording the remaining parts of the old RAF site at Harwell before the housing development takes part of it over like the archaeological dig . This led to reading the book 'Harwell the enigma' which gave more information and took me to the War Grave cemetery giving me a bit of a shock seeing one in a village normally you come across a few graves or more like at Benson.
This year has taken me to Villages I knew about but never visited and the never ending search for benchmarks (thanks Roger) along with the odd triangulation point . I have carried on recording the development of Fairmile hospital in Cholsey and a few months ago saw the finishing of the first phase on the site . The Newbury Parkway development opened in October and to my shame I have not had a chance to get down there to finish off my article Link , because of the work on my house I have slow down on the Fairmile side as well.
At least I have managed to get back out along the Kennet at long last (a favourite of mine) to record some more pillboxes and another walk along there is in the offing. Hopefully in the Christmas holidays I will get back to the Thames to finish my last part to Lechlade.
By then I hope to have a new GPS to record my walks and add to Rudiís ever increasing list.
