Christmas 2007

Christmas 2007
A capture of Christmas in St Mary Street, Bridgwater, from 2007, Managed to catch the postman on his rounds,
The church of St Mary the virgin is the towns oldest building, built in the early English style it is known that the tower was complete in the early 1300s and work to add the spire started in 1367.

It was taken as a slide and converted to a digital image a few years ago and only came to light while I have been having my annual winter image tidy up,

A delightful town-scape Roger..............with beautiful diffused light and some interesting buildings. The posty on his bike is a nice touch and (as has been pointed out) a rare sight nowadays. You must have been up pretty early to get this one!

Many thanks Keith it was a Saturday (just looked it up) so it probably ment I was on my way to or from a shout, It's suprising how many posties still set off on bikes from our local sorting office,

Neither really, after early retirement I changed direction entirely and worked on accident recovery mainly for the Police and mostly on the M5 or adjacent main roads. A bit gory at times and very odd hours but it paid really well and was really interesting work.
