Less water, more trees
A hose pipe ban has began, and the reason why is clear from this pair of pictures of Kingston Wood by the water tower on the edge of the parish. The top picture was put up on this Blog on 19th March 2010 when there was concern that the rising water table was damaging the area. The bottom picture was taken last week, just over two years later.
Meanwhile, a contributor to Rod Collins' website has found this old postcard image of St Nicolas' (and of the Grange next door). This is clearly number 3 in a series of which the image of a monument in St Michael's churchyard put up on this Blog on 13th March 2010 was number 5 (so I'd dearly love to be able to find numbers 1, 2 and 4, and possibly numbers 6 onwards). The bottom picture is the 'same view' yesterday.
