Burnham Briskly 22

After a weeks holiday, good to get back on two wheels. What is not good is moving from  22 degrees to 1 in 24 hours. Nice and sunny in Weston but a tad colder than the beaches of Fuerteventura!  Plenty of layers on today for a ride down to Burnham on Sea and back.

Ferguson Tractor

Saw this along Wick Lane near Brean. Brought back memories from when I worked in the agricultural industry in the early 60s. This was the work horse of farming. First introduced in 1946 it was manufactured until 1956 and introduced the '3 point linkage system' which is universal now on all tractors. This is a very good example of a restored 'Fergie'.

St Andrews Burnham on Sea

The church, the parish church of Burnham   is known for, its 78ft high, leaning tower, which gets a lot of attention from tourists.  Apparently, if a plumb line was dropped from the north side of the tower it would land 3 foot away from the building. They should have got the foundations right all those years ago,

Good ride today, just over 22 miles. A bit chilly heading back into the slight wind.
