Rog, after your pictures of the narrowboat I've finally got round to trying to picture mine. Due to the length of the shell I can't get it all on one shot so just done the cabin.

The biggest problem was painting the tiny flowers on the can etc. The helmsman looks like he should be in Village People !

It can be radio controlled with the relevant bits, but I'm afraid I'm not that clever. B.

Had a lovely walk/scramble on the bank of the River Dove today. Just checking out what work needs doing for the fishing club. There were swarms of Mayfly and fish rising to take them. There was an abundance of large insects flying around, Damsel Flies,Crane Flies, Butterflies and even a moth that looked like a Jersey Moth - first I've seen hereabouts. Sunny day by the river - who needs a fishing rod?

Back last night from a gorgeous sunny and interesting holiday in France, and found it amazing that NOBODY on the coach ever mentioned B****t, and not one French person we encountered ever mentioned it either. As usual, we were all made to feel most welcome.

Yes, I appreciate that they like our spending power, but it was good to be in a different environment for a few days.

CT, I think they are genuine bricks, and by the looks of it, hand made. The colour is reminiscent of the yellowish bricks in the London area.

I bought some red bricks, albeit with similar markings, from a reclaimation yard in Kent several years ago, to rebuild my lounge hearth.

You get those dark spots on the bricks by adding "Breeze" to the mix during the manufacturing process,"Breeze" is a type of crushed coke that burns and glazes over in the kilns leaving that distinctive pattern

Sorry I thought you meant the ones with Breeze in them BK,yes you are right they look like a London brick company/Phorpres/ small producer, could even be hand made as opposed to pressed or extruded
