I has a kitty.


Biting works, both fingers and toes.

Eating is also fully functional.

I'd sort of heard about Abbey Wood But hadn't realised that it was only an hour or so away. We went for a walk on Monday and had a look at the area where you can dig for fossils, and on top of a pile of shelly bits that someone had left (It looked as if someone had been doing some fairly organised sieving of the sand) there was a small brown twigish thing, which was a sharks tooth:

My brother had mentioned Belfast Truss's a few times and I remembered them when reading about what was happening on the Olympic site at Kings Yard several years ago.

The Belfast Truss's from Kings Yard where salvaged (pdf, see page 33) and a few weeks ago while out for a walk I spotted them in a builders yard on Gallions point. Unfortunately they are in a rather sorry state, the wind has mostly shredded the tarpaulin covering them and they are now exposed to the rain:


Now all i need is a £million or so, some land, a tame Architect and Civil Engineer and i can make a nice bit of reproduction Industrial Heritage... :)

August 13, 2015 : CCC Camp15 Day 1

Lots of stuff happening at the camp. The EMF Village is up and running and everyone is here now.

I did an Engel parking shift this morning which involved sitting around not doing very much, the parking area was quite far from the camp in some woodland so while there weren't cars around i went looking for wildlife:
