Bike with an Alpple #2

After the chores and a coffee I got it into my head to tour the parish of Woodhorn. Put a flask up and off I went.......
First port of call was Woodhorn Colliery, now a museum......


The old man worked here from 1938 up until it's closure in 1981.

It was then off along the cycle track to Woodhorn Village. stopped for five just before the village. Thirty five years of smoking tells, even after giving up fifteen years ago.


After feeling rejuvenated it was off to the church for a look around the graveyard. The church has been closed since the seventies. Now overgrown and looking neglected.


After a while there it was off to the windmill atop a hill. Built in the mid nineteenth century it stopped milling during the nineteen twenties.


Stopped at the junction in the village and had a coffee or two. The ex farmhouse in the background is the residence of ex Durham County and England cricketer, Steve Harmison, I couldn't see him.... he must have been out.

Been a while since I’ve shared a blog or two. A few years ago I started to produce composite images, mainly of dried vegetables and locusts etc. I did dabble in more complicated stuff but lost interest. After looking though some of the old stuff I’ve...

Omega 3 fish oil capsules....

Good for the heart, also good to use as a subject through a macro lens. I liked the light and colour.

Today's blog made me think of Bill Bryson's Notes From a Small Island - an excellent read if you haven't already read it.

Thanks for the info Malcolm, I've not read the book. After a bit of research it sounds interesting so did a search on amazon and have placed an order..... six quid, looking forward to a read.

It's easy reading - let me know what you think of it. I've read a couple of his other tomes as well...
