Re: Wykeham - Somewhere in the south!

I thought that was your house viewed from the shed. What a great view. They obviously had trouble with you walking on the grass. Many wouldn’t expect that in the heart of London. The garden "shed" - didn't come from B&Q :D It was a great place to work for forty two years + five years in Gray's Inn ...

Re: Wykeham - Somewhere in the south!

Hi Brian - I know the feeling - many a time I would have to work late, but at the same time desperate to get away and would end up looking out of the widow. The view from my "old" office window - https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50644724853_b994a16fac_b.jpg Lincolns Inn by Barry Clayton , on Flic...

Re: Wykeham - Somewhere in the south!

Department store now open for business - although the light over the store entrance appears to have failed :evil: - also the building is not flat on the board - it was - so a bit more work to do, and then the room can go back to tidy :lol: The buildings opposite the station entrance have not had the...

Re: Wykeham - Somewhere in the south!

I've often been accused of being too tidy when it comes to modelling - well in fitting lights to buildings means I have to get under the boards, which meant moving a bookcase etc. At this moment I do not have room to move :cry: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50634607942_be95e843ec_k.jpg IMG_078...

Re: Wykeham - Somewhere in the south!

The lighting in the department store is progressing well - the electricians are working overtime! I have just been lining the Manydown signal box roof with my wife's best Bacofoil - it's a great light blocker. It's amazing that a resin roof/wall etc., that is perhaps 3mm thick has a lovely "glow" wh...

Re: Housing market mayhem

Your right Puddles - I was born in North London (Muswell Hill) and we lived in a rented flat for a number of years before my parents bought their first house in Friern Barnet. I occasionally go onto Google Earth/Streetwise and look where I used to live and check out roads I knew well. As you say the...

Re: Housing market mayhem

By the mid-seventies house prices in the south were starting to rise at an incredible rate. I paid £6250 for a three bedroomed semi in 1971 and sold it in 1976 for double the price - paid £25K for the next house - and I'm still in it! :(
