  1. When my copy came it was accompanied by a postcard with a personal message. Thank you.
  2. And having read Dave Rowe's tribute to Shirley, my eyes are quite damp.
  3. Times, they are a changin'... Others may have noticed, but just seen that Cygnet have changed their address and have an email for Small Suppliers.
  4. Confirming what I said previously from close-ups. Limestone, not granite.
  5. From memory it's probably a local Devonian period limestone, not granite. Probably quarried from Hooe or Brixhan areas, or maybe Buckfastleigh.
  6. There is a Facebook group called Friends of Ashburton Station, who (I think) are proposing a return to trains using the existing station site. If you are on FB you can find them by searching for their name. There was a public meeting in September, this is the (just published) report of that meeting. If you can see it, this is a link to the post <iframe src="https://www.facebook.com/plugins/post.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2FAshburtonStation%2Fposts%2F1768452806639595&width=500" width="500" height="802" style="border:none;overflow:hidden" scrolling="no" frameborder=
  7. I have recently received a photograph of The Lady of the Collies in the background of which was the multi-awl-rapid-fire device. Be aware.
  8. Just found myself going outside for a break and up to the back gate and peering through, just like the dogs used to. I did not, however, use the lawn for what the dogs used to.
  9. It's the only thing I go into Smiffs for, but wait until I read that it's reached some of their shops from reading threads such as this, so the Smiffs searchers save me time.
  10. See https://www.okehampton-today.co.uk/article.cfm?id=438141&headline=Dartmoor+Railway+goes+into+administration&sectionIs=news&searchyear=2020&fbclid=IwAR3A_AsVLCP2bS0dUIQD701W-L1NSzz2n7XDo7QkY17u7ncDCGG7N9zP728
  11. The Observer, today, has this: https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2020/jan/25/dump-hs2-and-pay-billions-more-boris-johnson-andy-street
  12. A bit? I see it as a classic non-statement hedging any bets.
  13. Don't know if this has already been posted. https://www.newcivilengineer.com/latest/hs2-staff-on-notice-and-consultant-workloads-slashed-22-01-2020/?fbclid=IwAR2BgmwhaPHAaY7_Mv37OzenwxqwluE4wERew2NvkGgXIEcW3B9jj9S9PhY
  14. Anyone getting the impression that thinking is less than joined up?
