Call me intuitive, if you like, Bill, but something suggests to me that this plumbing is not very old...
Bill Phillips: Very smart of you Ray. I think you might be right
Those are so great! nice triptych!
Bill Phillips: Fun aren't they?
Mr. Ridge will be pleased with this one Bill... i also noticed that the fancy gutteridge with the English Rose were stamped out in 2010....petersmile
Bill Phillips: A nice bit of restoration Peter

Oh, how fun, Bill. I go crazy whenever I fine stuff like this. I wonder if there's a pig somewhere?
Bill Phillips: Could be
Those gargoyles are the dreams of nightmarish goules. Good contemporary sculptures.
I see the sheet lead creations had to return to decent gutterage designs from the past.

A very professional triptych Sir Billiam
Bill Phillips: You can't beat traditional gutteridge comrade Elite

Somebody might be especially pleased while looking at this downpipeage. The gargoyles seem to be restored newly. A fine discovery and a nice triptych!
Bill Phillips: Yes it is all new but beautifully done Philine. Welcome back, I hope your seminar went well

I had never seen drainpipes like these until I ventured out of Australia and I still find them so fascinating
Bill Phillips: I suppose they belong in the middle ages before Australia was invented grin

I will have to drop back later to see what Gutteridge thought of them
Bill Phillips: He seems to approve

Now they look quite new. I like the bat especially. It's been too long since I've been to Chichester; I must go back.
Bill Phillips: 2010 according to the date stamped on them
I woulds have a pained expression too if a piece of black gutterage was passed through my body.
Bill Phillips: An eye watering thought Mary

That is very smart gutteridge mate, love the fixings.
Bill Phillips: Quality effort that the Priory deserves
and they seem to be in great shape too
Bill Phillips: Handsome aren't they?
Benny Hill's mansion I suppose Bill...
Bill Phillips: He lived in a council flat.
That made my day Bill. Great fun
Bill Phillips: Delightful aren't they Janet
de belles tĂȘtes d'animaux
Bill Phillips: Merci smile
It all looks new Bill, but nicely done!
Bill Phillips: A couple of years old Martin.
They're great Bill. Love the bat on the end.
Bill Phillips: I rather like the bat too! Talking of which the bats seem to be out in force this year around here. Don't think I've ever seen so many
Firstly a fine collage Bill, secondly quite the best gutteridge we have seen on here for many a while and thirdly fun gargoyles aren't they. I noted your reply to Chris, I wonder what happened to that Ellie?
Bill Phillips: They are rather fine gargoyles. Ellie seems to have dropped from sight
Great fun triptych Bill!
Bill Phillips: They caught my eye Richard and I thought they were great fun
Wonderful - you'll be making Chad very envious!
Bill Phillips: He has been quite magnanimous Tom grin
These have a distinctly modern edge to them Bill, which I see they are!
Bill Phillips: It is good to see a modern take on this on an old building like the Priory. It works well
Very good set, Bill. Unusual to see new gargoyles.
