Brent Knoll Shop
In the absence of a cafe on this route, called in the village shop for a sugar rush (half a Mars Bar - the rest next time out) it had also been drizzling for some time and welcomed the chance to get inside for 5 minutes. The lady behind the counter was very friendly and explained how hard it is to make any profit from the shop or the Post Office in these modern times.
Road Closed 1
This was half way along Brent Knoll main street. Loads of closed and diversion signs about but thankfully, pedestrians and cyclists had been considered so could get through.
A project for a mate!
A bit further along the main street there is this yard full of old farm, and non farm vehicles. My good mate has been looking for some years for an old tractor, preferably a Fordson, to renovate. This one seems to have been cannibalised to the extent it would no longer be a viable proposition but have sent him the picture. He may not be my mate any more after this!
Road Closed 2
2 miles further on, on the West Road at Lympsham, more closures. No special provisions here but a chat with the engineers smoothed the way through saving a long detour round. The Old Gits used this road last Tuesday and although the signs were up there was no obstruction. Obviously working somewhere else that day.
