This is the pedestrian footbridge over the railway at Wendover Station in Buckinghamshire, on the Chiltern Railway Line. Despite rust having it’s own natural charm, the deterioration due to lack of pain is obvious apart from exposing the maintenance that is desperately needed ! #LackOfPaint #Rust #Wendover #WendoverRailwayStation #RailwayStation #PedestrianRailwayBridge #RailwayFootbridge #FootBridge #ChilternRailway #WendoverFootBridge #LackOfMaintenance #NeglectedPaint

This is one of the St Edward’s K6 Crowns, undergoing the paint stripping prior to complete renovation. I am using Wicks varnish and paint stripper, and I have been very pleased with it ! #StEdwardsCrown #K6TelephoneBox #paintStripping #DiYpaintStripping #K6CrownInsert #QueensCrownK6 #WicksPaintStripper #PillarBoxRed

Instantly recognisable as the St Edward’s Crown that was part of the K6 telephone box designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott. The previous larger K2 model which was also designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott had its crown created by a series of holes in the cast iron, which provided the ventilation ! #K6TelephoneBox #K6Crowns #StEdwardsCrown #PillarBoxRed

It was a fortunate find at Denham Car Boot, in Buckinghamshire. I casually asked the price and was told it was a pound, so I didn’t bother to haggle. I don’t have a clue who the manufacturer is, but that lovely bright green glow from the Ultra Violet light confirms that it had Uranium added to the glass during manufacture to add to its bright colour ! #UraniumGlass #UVlight #GreenGlassSpoon #UraniumGlassSpoon #UraniumGlass #CarbootFind #PoundWellSpent

Seen at Denham Car Boot sale in Buckinghamshire, it was published a hundred years ago in 1918, how life and the English language has changed ! #NewMeaning #HalliwellSutcliff #TheGayHazard #DenhamCarBoot #denhamcarbootSale #DenhamBucks #Denham #Buckinghamshire #Book #InterestingRead #HundredYearsAgo

Yesterday’s car boot at Denham near the M40 where it meets the M25. It’s big, and expensive for punters paying £3.00p per head to get in before 10.00a.m., one would like to think it keeps the riff-raff out, but no such luck. It was raided by police hence the obvious police presence as seen in the photos and surreptitious video. Unconfirmed word from the regular stall owners was that one of the sellers during the week had robbed another sellers warehouse and was selling the goods at the carboot sale. I didn’t get to see the real action which was the accused being escorted away in cuffs, and didn’t wait till the carboot ended to see the white Mercedes Sprinter being taken away on the low loader seen in one of the photos ! #DenhamCarBoot #DenhamBuckinghamShire #Denham #Buckinghamshire #Bucks #DenhamBucks #PoliceRaid #ActionInTheShires #Carboot #GoodsReUnited

Just in the right place at the right time to catch the reflection from the clouds of the sun going down in the Oxford Canal in the centre of Banbury in Oxfordshire ! #RedSky #SunGoingDown #BanburyCanal #Banbury #BanburyOxfordshire #Oxfordshire #CanalReflection #Reflection #Ducks #DucksOnWater #DucksOnCanal

This is clearly setting a trend in Oxfordshire to have a clock with a humidity and temperature reading on your level crossing front garden gate ! @gates_of_insta #FrontGardenGate #LevelCrossingGate #ClockOnGate #Clock #ClockOnTheGate #GardenClock #GardenFeature #WantageOxfordshire #Oxfordshire #Time

This is the finished bird feeder product all made from throw away bits, starting with a plastic Lucozade bottle. To help protect it from the rain a specialist electric glue gun welder, fixed the top to the Lucozade bottle top ! #HomeMadeBirdFeeder #DiYbirdFeeder #BirdFeeder #WildBirdFeeder #DiYproject #GardenDiY #GardenProject #LucozadeBottle

This is just a small part of the largish (2 acres) garden. The foreground is a containing wall made from local stone from a quarry at Stanford, which has created a raised bed. Looking healthy is a Sedum which hasn’t flowered yet, so I wait in anticipation to see what colour it will be, it was a kind gift from Lizzy at of @railholiday, behind that to the left is a recent black glazed terracotta pot purchase with the date of 1897 upon it, inside which is an attractive long needled grass, and no idea how big it will grow. To its right is a glazed terracotta bird box made to look like a fisherman’s fishing bag, which I have yet to decide where best to locate it. And what appears to be an orange ball in the background, is actually a 1935 glass top of a Belisha beacon. They were named Belisha beacons after Leslie Hore-Belisha who was then the Minister of Transport. I bought it at an auction a few years back, but I am still waiting for an inspiration as to how to creatively use it ! #BitOfTheGarden #BelishaBeacon #Sedum #NeedleLeavedGrass #StoneWall #BirdBox #RaisedGarden #FrontGarden #LongGrass

I am always attracted to attractive, decorative and unusual brickwork and this was no exception. Bradenham Manor is a good three quarters of a mile off the road with a most delightful track that takes you through National Trust Woodland ! #BrickArt #BrickAndRoofTiles #ArtisticWall #Bricks #BrickWall #BradenhamManor #WestWycombe

Well it looked fabulous for an outdoor seating and eating facility, but being just 1p under £300.00p kinda put its uniqueness into perspective ! #MilletsFarm #FrilfordOxfordshire #Frilford #Oxfordshire #OutdoorSeatingAndTable #TractorConversion #GardenFurniture #TractorTableAndSeat #RedTractor
