8) Plaque over a house in Chequers Must be where Thurston Smith lived......an engineer.
Thurston worked at the brick yard on Enfield Rd, he was a Model Engineer, his projects can be seen in Ossy Mills, they are in glass display cases, he also made a brick clay model of part of Clayton. Thurston also made a working model of a brick making machine, where that is now I don't know.

I double checked on the way home, must be at least 10. There is a good one with stuff growing around it, very photogenic position.

Did you not see the lovely colours tonight , me neither.

Yeah. I believe the owner works in another department somewhere in the building, I guess zeus started off following and started hanging around the benches relaxing on those sunny days......

Yes he is.
And when I first read that...I thought you meant that the dude was old looking .......the dude is my other half......the little girl is my daughters girl.
(no, I don't call her that G daughter thing because I have never been that G thing....I hat being called that G thing...and anyone who calls me that does it at their peril)

I was so pleased they have salvaged that mosaic, although does need a little bit of attention.

Love the new garden area too .... except the stone benches.. Mind you so little fat on me bum at the moment, can't sit on the wooden ones for very long... lol.

The mosaic is lovely Kate...very colourful. The grass hasn't quite grown over the bare bits of ground yet, but it is a lovely area.
If you want some padding for you BTM....I can let you have some of mine.
Though I'm not entirely sure how I would get it to you.
Second thoughts...do as Jen says Take a cushion- and an umbrella

Here's some pictures of this new garden area taken just now. Still looks pretty in the rain, and the rain doesn't half make the grass look an amazing colour of green :
