    The Ingham Swan

    Reopening the cremated Swan comes closer, as the swinging swan sign has been restored and put in place. A man has been restoring the plasterwork on the front. Meanwhile next door the battens are being put in place for the thatching.

  10. Whilst not directly on the broads this road will effect everyone who lives on the broads or who comes to the broads. So I started this topic, so that we can let people know where the traffic jams and road works are, while they build it. They claim it will be finished in 2 years!!? One road I know of is already closed to through traffic is the small lane that passes the eastern end of Norwich airport ( it's actually the northern end of St Faiths road) which joins Quakers lane. Also on the Norwich to Horstead /Coltishall Rd near the Garden Centre are 30MPH signs and there are markers in the verges showing where the works will be for the Junction / Roundabout there. Anyone for 3 or 4 years of chaos?

    A final bump up for our show, on Saturday.

    North Burlingham A47 Improvements

    It's a bit over the top to build a complete new dual carriageway, you could keep the old 47 as one side and save a lot of money. But I do like the road junction to cantley. Dodging sugar beet lorries determined to cross the carriageway is dangerous.

    News Papers

    TV, radio, on line, I gave up with newspapers as they gave up with reporters. The EDP is now just a collection of articles sent in by someone with something to sell or promote..

    The Sub £300.00 4hp Outboard...

    I still have a Seagull Sliver Century Plus in the Shed, unfortunately it would sink the 8 ft dinghy, as it's a bit big. however those outboards look very interesting..
  15. Is Carol Vorderman there as well?
  16. Err all that coneing off is for is..... Gardening on the roundabout....

    The Ingham Swan

    The last of the Cremated Swan scaffolding was being removed as I went past, one man trying not to caber toss a 20ft pole held vertically.. The buildings next door are still covered but their roof is now entirely boarded up.
  18. They put the cones to the side of the road over night, we shall see what happens.. it wouldn't surprise me if it's just a few bits of paint work...
  19. The NDR Wroxham road round about is now a forest of cones. All approach roads are now coned down to single lanes including the roundabout. There is some heavy machinery around up some side lanes. I suspect they are going to redesign the layout..

    The Ingham Swan

    The temporary scaffolding roof has now been removed from the cremated Swan, and she looks resplendant in her new thatch. She is still surounded by scaffolding though, and the outside needs painting. The properties next door still have their scaffolding roof, and I can now see their roof is being boarded out..

    My Day

    Well, I spent the weekend mostly lying underneath my 16ft sailing boat sanding, the area where the rudder box was has been rebuilt, and has been glassed, filled, sanded, filled, sanded, and just needs a little more sanding before painting. My arms gave out..,. OH why don't I turn it over.... it weighs about 245kg... My boat is just a little 16 footer, having admired the river cruiser classes on water and in the photos on another thread, My arms and wallet could not afford a river cruiser.. For the rest of my free time this year, work on the boat will be on inside. The next project will be rebuilding the helming position and modifying the tabernacle for the new mast (Well it's probably 30 years old, but new to me). I now have old sails, to use during development, and found a boom that fits that was hiding in the shed.. The only problem being the boom is rigged for an aft traveller and mainsheet. I need to get my end of the mainsheet forward to in front of me, sat in the middle of the boat, facing forward and I'm not drilling holes in a near 50 year old aluminium boom (ex Lark Dinghy 158).

    Playing Norfolk Trains

    Beautifull Modelling, I remember the LNER Buffet cars, Back in 1977 the SRPS acquired one, just out of use from BR. We had just got it and I believe restoration to teak had occured when BR borrowed it back again!! It was used on our railtours till recently but is now undergoing a full restoration..

    Smart Meters

    I've so far refused to have a smart meter because of this coclup in being unable to use the same meter across several suppliers. A year or so ago they sent a letter to us saying a man would come round to check for the installation of a water meter but would would not be required to use it, a few days before the date they cancelled... we've never heard a thing since...
