Thursday 17 December - Star Wars

Building of the Day - Barker Street.  Very ornate decorations.
Today is our last day in Shrewsbury and we spent a little while packing our cases.  The Star Wars movie opened today so we went down to the afternoon performance at the multiplex cinema in Abbey Foregate.  It was about what I expected - lots of action, explosions etc but with poor plot lines,

It was raining lightly when we went in, the river is still very high under the English bridge - the pathway along this section has been flooded the entire time we have been here.  When we left the theatre the clouds had lifted , there was blue sky and it looked as if there would be a sunset - ah well - next time.
A typical Great Western Railway lower quadrant signal complete with metal finial and a hopeful sky.  This is the southbound home signal for Sutton Bridge Junction

  1. Hello Colin,
    I'm just beginning my Christmas break from teaching and finally have found time to read through your last couple of week's entries worth. I must say that I have enjoyed enormously your stories, food and meal tales, your awe-inspiring images and, in particular, your great videos of some very special musical performances. Ah, the joys of travel! While all your images grab my attentions, the image that I stayed glued to for some time is the close-up shot of the Great Western Railway lower quadrant signal with the fascinating sky forming an impressive backdrop. What a closing "sunset" shot that could be for a presentation! Now, I become rather busy with musical performances leading up to Christmas. Merry Christmas to you and your entire family and...please do keep the amazing blog entries coming our way! Mike
