  1. Think it may be a A13 Mk.III Cruiser Mk.V Covenanter (Only has 4 driving wheels, Crusader had 5). This was the predecessor of the Crusader. https://www.tanks-encyclopedia.com/ww2/gb/A13-III_Cruiser_MkV_Covenanter.php
  2. Found this .pdf file about gasworks that may be helpful. gasworks_profile_a_history_and_operation_of_gasworks_final.pdf
  3. We've been here before. Page 48 (July 2016) and page 256 (Dec 2017) MERRY CHRISTMAS to all.
  4. Just been looking through some old slides and came across these from late 70's/early 80's from the North Norfolk Railway GER Y14 564, LNER J15 7564 and a cabriolet B12 (aka 8572 in the re-making)
  5. Maybe the driver had just dropped his packet of Polos.
  6. 1873 Morant map of Norwich showing thee City Goal http://historic-maps.norfolk.gov.uk/mapimageviewer/
  7. Kings Cross I guess? Going to loose a few hours on that site. Do the "Advanced Search", with years from 1830 to 1900 and Railways as keyword!
  8. Substitute West Norwich for London! https://collage.cityoflondon.gov.uk/view-item?i=320841
  9. Not St John the Baptist under construction, but St Pancras. (The London Picture Archive) https://collage.cityoflondon.gov.uk/view-item?i=305816
  10. https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@52.6289482,1.2818189,3a,75y,164.55h,85.13t/data=!3m8!1e1!3m6!1sAF1QipMZnI2l-q_6ndJWOIuJIIWbNXG_HsbW2Oga29ly!2e10!3e11!6shttps:%2F%2Flh5.googleusercontent.com%2Fp%2FAF1QipMZnI2l-q_6ndJWOIuJIIWbNXG_HsbW2Oga29ly%3Dw203-h100-k-no-pi-0-ya96.40538-ro-0-fo100!7i4000!8i2000 The Plantation still looks ok if you come from a lower route. Would also put the terminus building on the main road. Exit out a tunnel straight into the station! (Where have I seen idea this before???)
  11. What about coming along the River Yare instead
  12. Well, looking at Babingley on Wiki, (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Babingley) St Felix was the first Christian church in Norfolk. A legend claims that Felix was shipwrecked on the River Babingley but a colony of beavers saved him from drowning, so in gratitude Felix consecrated the chief beaver as a bishop. The village sign records the legend, showing a beaver wearing a bishop's mitre, ministering to other beavers. A shrine to Beavers, you couldn't make it up any better!
  13. Not sure if it's come up before, (quick search say's no!) but there is a ruined church to St Felix about 1.5 mile SSE of Wolferton Copyright Gintaras Girdzius https://goo.gl/maps/VGQDG839qLxcMxQT6
  14. Just went back to look at page 1 and came across the picture of the old Drill Hall, instantly reminded of the buildings at St Wilfreds Priory in Arundel. https://goo.gl/maps/6uXr5KBepKisXnr7A
  15. https://images.app.goo.gl/HAixnThCBUe2GnNS8 https://images.app.goo.gl/1xfT4DEtq2s4FSY29 Looks like taken from similar spots on Sugar Loaf Hill.
