Now no laughing! I've been honing my Blue Peter skills & building a scale model of the current proposed layout. It will help visualise things & particularly help the artist doing our artists impression. I will probably bring it along to the AGM.

Not quite finished, but take a look anyway:



Part finished or not, Im impressed, makes me want to play with me Hornby,...ooh er, perhaps I should rephrase that!

A brilliant way to set the mood for the era, with what looks like water colours and please give the artist a pat on the back from me.
I like the telegraph poles they add to the scene and fit in well, didn’t someone from around here have have a hobby collecting antique telephone equipment?

Thanks Vic... Pat will be given!

All the power to the Wells site was supplied by overhead wires and we have recovered several of the poles complete with insulators.

We will include these on the buildings if only as dummies, though it might be possible to actually supply power on them...

Here's an old picture of Joyce Green where you can see the supply cables and blast walls, bright side on the right black side on the left

The scale model and artist's impressions both look great, good work!

Quick update on this. Arthur Brown and myself visited Amberly today to check up on the condition of the huts.

 

Good news: they are still in surprisingly good condition !!

 

Bad news: they still need a home and manpower to move them there !!

 

Any volunteers and/or suggestions ??

Would the Waltham Abbey gunpowder mills be a possible site? They have lots of room.


Organisation is a wonderful trait in others

Discussions along those lines have been underway recently, along with some other locations, but no positive news as yet.

I believe it didn’t get of the ground, it would need to be a commercial venture and that costs a lot.

I don't know what happened to the money that was raised by donation.

 

The sheds were in a pretty dilapidated condition probably hardly worth saving. It's a shame that it didn’t happen.
