Just thought I'd stick up a quick post of some pics that haven't made it on to a blog.
In no particular order and no particular theme
The Wolsley Chimney, all that is left of the old mill just outside Leicester. Leicester grew up around the woolen industry at the time of the industrial revolution. Ian remebered his school socks were made by Wolsey. The company are still working and producing woollen and textiles today, sportswear and uniforms too.
The power station at Ratcliffe-on-Soar, bit of a grey day and the steam rising from the cooling towers added to the cloud.
I took a bus into Derby on Thursday while Ian was away. Derby Cathedral was lovely, inside it is light with some lovely modern stained glass, a 20th century altar canopy, some wrought iron screens and the old tower.
The piles of crochet squares are growing, now I need to start thinking how they should be arranged.
Ordered by colours....
Actually now I read back perhaps there is a theme.....Towers!
