Of solutions

Solutions - legal solutions, technical solutions, rubber solutions. They're all in the mix this week as industry winds down towards Christmas.

Of Tunstead playing away

Not the average week here at the Briddon Country Pile. We've got progress on one project that's been at a standstill for two years though.

Of leaks and dribbles

21st October 2018

Hullo again. Off we go wth the usual mixture of plans that go awry, achievements that may not have been what we first intended but progress all the same.

Of visitors and cameras

19th August 2018

A slightly briefer report this week, Steph's away at our daughters so on my return from the shed I had first to complete plant watering and cooking before even thinking about blog composition.

Welcome to August. No you, are, I assure you: I don't want it if it's going to stay this hot.

Of gas oil and hedgehog houses

Back again? Not so many pictures to show this week - one of those weeks where a lot of things happen but scarcely worth photographing. So best read on..

Of sand and crate

22nd July 2018

Another sweltering week here at the Briddon Country PIle. The grounds around the mansion are parched. Part of the Darley Dale yard is transforming into a sandy desert. Oh hang on, that was the blasting contractor.

Of pipe and bellows

15th July 2018

As a narrow-minded, er - narrow gauge fan I would dearly have liked to have been at the Tracks to the Trenches event this weekend, but sadly more normal activities prevailed. Not as dramatic as last week certainly, (phew) but enough to be going on with.

Of meetings, planned and chance

1st July 2018

We have a new clock in the shed. Well not new exactly, it came from my late father's house but I only found it again this week when having a tidy-up in my 'office' at home. It was still happily displaying the time, date, day of the week and temperature. I thought that it would be of better use at the shed, so now it looks down on us (the LCD display looks blacker from below) and I can exclusively reveal that the temperature in the shed touched 29.5 degrees today. Much tea consumed to stave off dehydration. But I digress...
