More overnight and into the early daylight hours, then bright and sunny as some of the following will show.

Having run out of wood screws for the latest project I’m working on and needing some wood stain as well, I took a somewhat scenic route to the relevant shops.

Exposed timbers on this house in Drayton, in some areas the timbers would be painted black as a contrast to the white rendering.

This row of new builds in Milton has the thatch finished, the timbers installed just waiting for the blocked walls to be rendered and painted though sometimes the render is pre-coloured.

Shiny black fence with my reflection, wrong month for that challenge.

This impressive brick wall in Culham, runs for around 300 yards and encloses a few houses on two sides.

From here is was time to collect project supplies, I managed to make what could have been a 3 mile trip into a 13 mile one.

Distance – 13 miles.

Journey – Solo.

Bike – Dawes Galaxy.

    Nice meandering ride and interesting photos — that is an impressive wall!
    The house in Milton is looking very nice.

    Wow – I know a couple people with OCD that would not be able to handle those ‘unsquare’ squares with the wooden trim. Do the new homes with thatch do so for heritage reasons or is there some sort of status to include it in a newly built homes? Glad you could get out between showers. Very hot and dry here, so it’s hard to imagine cold and wet!

      Very interesting question Em , I don’t really have an answer as I don’t think I’ve ever seen a new build with a thatch, and not sure it is a heritage or status thing as Milton is not that sort of village.
      In a previous life I worked with a young lady who had a sister who was a doctor, the sister “suffered” from OCD and when preparing vegetables etc they all had to be exactly the same length or in the bin they went.
