Droitwich on a Sunday Morning 9

This is St richard's house and it used to be the entrance to the town's brine baths built in 1888. Now it houses a Salt Museum and the tourist information office. There is also some memorabilia about the radio masts at Wychbold. Droitwich used to be on the dial of most old radios, along with romantic sounding names like Hilversum.

 

The red door featured in one of a certain Mr Phillips's of Bath picture series called  rain Friday. A slanderous series claiming that it always rains in Droitwich. Clearly this is not the case

Fabulous shot! The architecture is wonderful.
Bill Phillips: It is a nice building late Victorian when the brine baths were in their heyday

A fine work here, Grandad Bill.

Really like this bollard, as it is serving well as a plant pot.

St Dickie Trim lives here?...well, who'd have thought...
Bill Phillips: He is the patron saint of Salt and Vinegar crisps Ray

Ah yes - I remember it well, Bill - and do so agree about no rain!
Bill Phillips: It only rains if Chris and Chad come to see me. As soon as they pull onto the drive the rain starts. So I think we know what the problem is

Did someone mention Salt Museum? I guess you'd know all about that, G'pa, right??? grin

Needless to say, I'm seeing Droitwich with new eyes these days. We'll have to tell the other Sir Philips to visit there on a few Sundays.
Bill Phillips: I am well into salt Ginnie. You will hopefully see Droitwich properly with your own eyes one of these days

Hilversum is Nederland, not far away from Astrid & Ginnie! A good day for you Grandparents and Helen and Joe- and the father, of course, too!
I knew that Droitwich is a sun -paradise where angels are living!
Bill Phillips: Indeed. When we were in the Netherlands we saw some old radios in a shop window display, and there was Droitwich!
Really lovely, Grandpa!!
Bill Phillips: I like the sound of that smile

Bill Phillips: I have evidence. You were caught on CCTV cameras.

Plenty of civic pride Billiam ...just like the small towns in rural France
Bill Phillips: "If you got it flaunt it" as they say in these parts

Have I missed something? Did Helen have her baby?
Bill Phillips: She did indeed Mary. 9.11am yesterday Morning 6 weeks early! Mum and baby are fine He weighed in at 4lb 21/2 oz. We are going to see him this afternoon
And Helvetia! There is a great, Van Morrison song about all those old radio station names, " the days,before rock and roll." every time I hear it,it takes me back to my childhood,wonderful. Oh,yeh', your photo's ok, Bill. smile
Bill Phillips: I bet you listened to Uncle Mac

Trimmy has a nice house. Kind of him to keep all the memorabilia to celebrate Droitwich's past.
Bill Phillips: His left wing credentials are in tatters Louis
A fine looking building, and that blue sky sure puts Chris's contention into question. Have a great visit with your new grandson, Bill!
Bill Phillips: Believe nothing of what Chris claims about Droitwich, although, ironically, it did rain on that Sunday afternoon
That Sunday morning was very eventful, certainly worth the early rise smile
Bill Phillips: I thought I would try to be a proper photographer grin
Fine capture of this beautiful house Bill!
Bill Phillips: It is rather handsome richard
What a fine building apart from the obligatory road signs which are not your fault. (Hope you've had a good visit this afternoon.)
Bill Phillips: It was wonderful to meet our new grandson. Of course we think he is the most beautiful baby in the world. See him tomorrow on Blackpig!
