Another Morning Ride

Cold start to the day, though nice and sunny with light winds.

Pollarded willow tree by the village pond and Sunningwell Art School.

These are becoming quite common in rural villages, making good use of old phone boxes.

Back to Steventon checking out the progress to the replacement roof, the stonework was being repointed on Friday with what looked like lime mortar.

Another lovely morning out on the bike.

    Had to look up pollarded — thought is a variety of willow Duh!

    So, thats a defribralator in the old phone box — great idea!

    Excellent carpentry on the building, mostly use pre-built trusses here

      Pollarded willow – every day’s a school day.

    I like it when “old” things — like the phone booth — are put to a use rather than torn down. I love those old red booths that are the reminder of Great Britain.

      A few of the phone boxes are being used as community lending libraries, I’ll try and get a photo when I come across one.
