Newark Park 3

In the gardens there is a crumbling folly that was rebuilt in the 70's by an architect. It is unsafe. I will refrain from further comment Tongue out

Cripes, and Chad are both a little down on the archies and spannermen today!
Bill Phillips: I have met a number of Architects in my time, some were complete plonkers and others were very capable talented people. The chap who built this was a great conservationist but a rotten builder
I am not too sure of your garden shot Bill..... but i loved your video of the big meeting with your SC friends.... it seems that every second picture they were drinking something.... i looks as though you all had a great time.... i wish i had been there....petersmile
Bill Phillips: We had a very enjoyable day Peter. Most of the drinks were non-alcoholic!
Great way to share the outing with those of us who couldn't be there! Thank you Bill!
Bill Phillips: It would be wonderful if we could get everybody togethersmile

Newark Park must be a lovely place - and I like your sun-lit leaves and the fine structures of the trunks - but quite more I enjoyed looking at your wonderful video and I could accompany you during your walk or better march (familiar music) through the Black Country Museum!
Bill Phillips: Tritsch Tratsch Polka which just seemed right somehow smile Newark Park is lovely

Brilliant Dudley compilation Bill: thank you
Bill Phillips: Pleasure Chris. This you tube lark is a good way of bunging a load of pictures up for a quick look!
I like the crisp green color in this one.
Bill Phillips: So did I Frances

The folly looks beyond redemption now; nature will soon consume it all. I shall have to wait until the day's toil is over before being able to see the YouTube link.
Bill Phillips: Something to look forward to then Alan
I like this picture - it is so bright and cheerful.

I LOVE the videos from yesterday and today. It looks like a great time was had by all. Thanks for capturing it.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Sheila. It was a good day and I think everyone enjoyed themselves.
Hm. I'm just looking for an architect !

Great video of a memorable day out
Bill Phillips: The chap who built this was a perfectly good architect but a rotten builder.

It was a good day. We will have to organise something next year!

Good shot of Mr Darling spying on a certain Mr Brown.
Bill Phillips: I see Mr D has got the knife out for poor old Gordon. I can't help thinking he would be better to keep quiet as he was a total incompetent so is in no position to criticise
Excellent little video, Bill. I sure would love to attend one of these meet-ups.
Bill Phillips: It would be wonderful if you could.
Crumbling folly, music to my ears smile
Bill Phillips: Worth a trip to Newark Park then smile

Oh yes, Polka by Johann Strauß! I had the melody still in my ears, but it's long ago that I took part in a polka ... - but the Britons seem to like dancing - in our Shap Wells Hotel there were often after the dinner some amusements for the guests while sitting in the lounge and drinking their ales ... - singing (Welsh and Scottish hymn...), conjurer's tricks, and sometimes I saw old couples spontaneously slowly dancing to the music - very nice! The old English couples may have a special charisma as some of us noticed - a lovely kind of togetherness without making many words, but now and then a joke ...
Bill Phillips: I cannot dance to save my life Philine, but ballroom dancing is very popular in the UK particularly in the North of england
But it does make a good picture. Great video Bill.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Brian. The video was a bit of fun!
So will I refrain Bill. Nice bit of AV work as well.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Les. The chap was a great conservationist but a rotten DIY builder

The compilation really captures the day well and what can I say about that wonderful cake?

Well done with the video, Bill; most enjoyable. It looks like that it really captured the spirit of the day with the different personalities.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Alan. At least none of them are camera shy
