Road trip to Detling & Ardingly

 Well doesn't time fly when you're having fun. It's time for the Kent & Sussex road trip for the Lady and I. First stop tomorrow afternoon sometime will be Detling that's after we've reloaded the trailer and van after my trip today to rural Sussex where I had a cracking treasure hunt around an old brickyard with the landlord in tow.
 The cabinet came out of the engineers shed. The lamps were locked away in another room. He's caught too many people "Just having a look around."
 For some reason everything was covered in brick dust.
 With just a bit of hot water these came up a treat. I have 11 of this type and 6 of the older smaller shades.
 Years and years of excavation has left this un-natural scenery.
 I thought it best not to!
 Walk this way...

 There are hundreds of these brick moulds. Anybody have any ideas on how to re-use them?
Dita the treasure hunting dog came along for the trip. Coward that she is, she wouldn't come into the dark buildings. She patiently waited outside. I could imagine something going wrong and she would turn into Skippy the bush kangaroo! What the boy's are lost down the mineshaft?

Part 2 of the trip takes us to Ardingly we will be in the blue zone on pitch 112 & 113 near the last of the shopping arcades. Part 2 will also bring re-enforcements in the shape of Bulldog Vintage and Tall Bloke Tim from Deben events. We hope to get chance for a wander around when they turn up.
