Did you see the Eclipse? If so - let me know where you were. Sadly we didn't see anything over in the land of scones and crumpets. Not that we would have anyway, as it was lovely and cloudy! Still, today was the day the mighty Big Ben bell stopped bonging for the next four years. Although it will still be used for special occasions, including New Year's Eve and Remembrance Sunday. The 13.7-tonne Great Bell has sounded on the hour for 157 years and last fell silent in 2007. The Great Clock it forms part of is to be dismantled and repaired.

It's caused a bit of kerfuffle in Britain... people saying it's a disgrace, others that it's just a bloomin' bell and there are plenty of other things to worry about. And that's true, but us Brits do like to have a bit of a moan about such things. And I had a lovely collection of messages the last time I mentioned this! I wasn't planning on posting this evening but saw this lovely shot via the @history Instagram page and couldn't resist. Even without the sound, this wonderful view is truly magical. Have a great evening! 🇬🇧 Visit Blimey.com (see link on my profile) to read more! Want your Photos of Britain to be featured?

A view over the Thames to the Palace of Westminster and its famous clock Big Ben - which rang for the last time in four years yesterday as it undergoes repairs // photo by @eugeniocorso72 #bigben #london #thames #westminster

Managed to go for a swim in the #Thames this morning at sunrise and capture this little gem beneath the #LondonEye 😜

Throwing it back to this beautiful evening in London on a fam jam trip in 2015! Just look at the Colors of the sky, and nope that's #NoFilter , it's what we call the magic hour .. ..

#findsrefound - with a bottle round-up.
First up are rivers:
@mrmudlark from the Thames with his lovely iridescent bottle necks
@edjbucknall has subsumed the glory of his amazing onion bottle (18th century) for the good of the whole, which include this pewter plate and knife and fork set. ( I was on the foreshore when he found this plate and I remember his excitement!)
@flo_finds has a beautiful green makers seal from an eighteenth century bottle
@americanmudlark with a Thames perfume bottle
@treehousetech - a tasty paste bottle (found in a Kent river)
@sarahmuddymum with her tiny Thames-Estuary blues
@girlfindstreasure with a Thames bottle base (and hoping for an ID on the makers mark).
And finally, @terryoldgit with his beautiful bottle collection (not sure if land or Thames as he does both)
Beachcombing finds to come...
