The did a great job with the ironwork here, Bill and I am glad they painted it in this colour again. Have a great time at Minehead. I did a google and walked the streets, looks like one big photo-opp.
Bill Phillips: It looks much better this colour than the grey it used to be. We were really taken with Minehead when we went last year
