I have noticed that the Wills conservatory is a perfect fit to the side wall of the old Hornby Victorian semi-detached houses kit. Same for the Victorian shops kit which shares many of the same mouldings.

Didn’t know that, this was a scratch build for a client, who owned the house in Oxford and wanted a model of it for in his office at work.

The Hornby kits are much underrated, its a pity that they're not made any more.

And as for your location being 'The land of someone's fathers', Dylan Thomas was quoted as saying 'My fathers can bloody keep it'!

Oh I feel that's somewhat harsh! It's not that bad! :P

No, it’s not.  I’m proud of being Welsh, and Thomas said a lot of things for comic effect in pubs so people would buy him beer.  He also wrote (and what he wrote mattered much more to him than what he said) ‘to be born Welsh is a privilege, not with a silver spoon in your mouth, but a song in your heart’.  Sentimental rubbish, but he was proud of his Welshness, while not averse to capitalising on it on American tours.

I should add that I am extremely happy to be able to live in Wales!

I was born in England but consider myself very lucky to have been brought up where I was in Wales.  Even though my schoolmates never stopped pointing out the part about me being English.....

Everyone should be proud of where they come from. but no to the extent that they think people from elsewhere are inferior.  I am very pleased when I hear of incomers to my country saying they like it, of course.

Whilst holding the greyboard with one hand I was looking to my right to control the camera remotely on the iPhone and failed completely to notice the board had slipped and my hand was in view.  

Best laid plans....as they say!!!

Lovely shot Kevin, but is this better for you?

Thanks Andy.

But I did retake the picture and that was the one that I posted a few days ago on LM thread.
