Buildings I like, Life, Luv Boxers, Railway

Snape Maltings

On the way back from the Driscoll Summer break in Great Yarmouth, I came back home on the A12 and made a detour to Snape Maltings near Aideburgh in Suffolk. The Malting’s were turned into a major concert hall by Benjamin Britten when they were closed by the Maltsters in the late 1960’s (Swonnells I believe). The complex is also home to a range of small shops and for a pretty penny, homes. Not much left of the old railway yard outside except a small tree covered office and the former goods agents house. The building is amazing hence the large number of photos and  a couple of Boxer dogs and a Morris Minor to boot.

Chailey 2014

August – so it must be Jelly & Ice Cream day in Chailey, Sussex (East or West not quite sure). A collection of layouts mainly of a narrow gauge persuasion with a few others from different scales thrown in the mix  (spot the 3mm) makes for a pleasant afternoons socialising and railway modelling at its best. A big thank you to Chris Ford and his lovely wife Karen for organising the day with the assistance of that nice Mr Hill.
