A couple from yet another car graveyard me and my friend found at the weekend - not going to put a full thread up yet as I think we missed over half of the grounds and didn't bother trying to find a way into the house that also sits there so we need to go back and investigate properly when not pushed for time. The undergrowth level was unreal, most of the time was spent in a stooped position.
I'm delighted it gave you a laugh Hughie, nearly gave me a coronary, I'd read in the local paper that the convent was for sale and the few remaining Nuns had moved to a smaller property to spend their remaining days together, I figured the place wouldn't be on the market too long so I decided to have a nose, being an old an vastly experienced trespasser and a sneeky bugger to boot I approached the site from the rear, through a wood and a farm of a First Class bar'steward, over the convent wall into a large overgrown garden, after being scratched an stung to buggery, I came across a tidy well kept spot, There under a cross were plaques for each nun who had died while serving at the convent, as everyone else would I was going to get the best shot I could, I was lining up the shot lost in thinking of the years of service put in by these folk, When someone tapped me gently on the shoulder turning I saw this little grey nun smiling at me, frightened the crap out of me, I garbled something about a lost dog and pissed off promptly
Some bumbling about yesterday after visiting Santa Pod for the NSRA Hot Rod Drags. Found the remains of some former farm buildings complete with intact air raid shelter just down the road from the strip, and then finally paid a visit to Bletchley Park although I need to go back for the tastier bits as we were flagging a bit by then.
