The weather has been fine and sunny, although a bit cold. Many houses and buildings had coal fires burning so there is the smell of coal all around. Not as choking as it would have been in the days of all the mining and industry here I guess.

gas street lighting
We loved the authentic shops, streets, shopkeepers etc. Just a few things out of place, the black bin liner! and the electric light bulbs strung across the Victorian street (I think for Christmas). The black kitchen ranges were so lovely, I want one! ('til it needs cleaning I suppose).

We have had a great day here.

We especially love the gas lighting both indoors and out. This one is right by our mooring.
