Just down the road near the old Eastleigh railway works this poster turned up on an advertising board. Couldn't resist the photo opportunity
:D

I was working here at the St Cross Hospital in Winchester last year but the church and surrounds was a bit of building site so as I was passing again today I popped back.

Hi Steve,
I believe that you can ask for Alms when at St. Cross - well my Dad did, but they'd run out of beer!

Bye the way, that picture of your Cyclone in front of the poster is tops. It would look good in the Cheval!

Trouble is that this site is so successful that so many of our readers of readers will already have seen it. Of course, as I have been saying for a while now, it won't be long before the paper Cheval becomes redundant anyway. .

I think no, I still need my paper magazine every month.

The Cheval reaches everybody John. We'd be lost without it every month. Thanks for all you do.

John, this site can't be bound in volumes.

On the subject of Cheval.
I much prefer paper tomes to screens; even kindles don't excite me. Must be as a result of spending year upon end behind a screen - I associate them with work.

There is always that anticipation of the Cheval coming through the letterbox and then waiting for the moment when I can sit down and savour it. It will be a sad day when it ceases to be more than a web page!!

Couldn't agree more - I certainly don't need any more 'screen time'...
cheers

Maybe the phrase "Two Jobs today" isn't quite the correct term to use :D as they were both at Sewerage works almost opposite each other near the River Thames. One at Becton and the other at Crossness.
Becton is a huge site and very easy to get lost in.


Take the 3rd exit for Sludge Powered Generator!!

The easiest way to get across the Thames was the Woolwich ferry. It's a free service that normaly has long queues but easy for bikes as they are encouraged to go to the front to use a space cars can't get into.

I did get lost in Crossness but a lovely guy from Thames Water who was very interested in my bike escorted me to the right area.
On the site exists a Victorian pumping station. I would have liked to have had a look around but it's probably only open at the weekends. Here's a picture from the Internet.
